TIFF Files (*.tif)


You can insert a TIFF image as a background into part or assembly documents when you change the scene.

To display a TIFF image as a background, on the Colors tab of the System Options dialog box, set the Background appearance to one of the following:
  • Plain
  • Gradient
  • Image file
The SOLIDWORKS application does not support LZW format compression for TIFF files.


The TIFF translator exports any SOLIDWORKS document as a TIFF image.
