Accessing SLDXML Data

If a design from a SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE application has been output as a .SLDXML file, you can access it by opening the file in SOLIDWORKS.

To access .SLDXML data:

  1. Click File > Open.
  2. Optional: 3DEXPERIENCE Users: If the Open from 3DEXPERIENCE dialog box appears, click This PC.
  3. For file type, select .SLDXML.
  4. In the dialog box, navigate to the location of the .SLDXML files and select a file.
  5. Open the file.
    A message box shows the progress of the data being read into the SOLIDWORKS file.

    The design opens and the model hierarchy appears in the FeatureManager design tree.
