JPEG Files

The JPEG translator takes a snapshot of anything displayed in the graphics window of a SOLIDWORKS part, assembly, or drawing document, and exports it as a .jpg file.

A .jpg file is an image file that you can open in most image viewers. The .jpg file displays only the information from the graphics window; toolbars and other areas of the SOLIDWORKS window do not appear.

To export a SOLIDWORKS document as a JPEG file:

  1. With a SOLIDWORKS document open, click File > Save As.
  2. Optional: 3DEXPERIENCE Users: If the Save As New dialog box appears, click Save to This PC.
  3. In the dialog box, set Save as type to JPEG (*.jpg).
  4. Click Options. See TIFF, Photoshop, and JPEG Export Options.
  5. Enter a File name and click Save.
