Enforcing Legal File Names

To ensure compatibility with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, you cannot save new SOLIDWORKS documents with preceding or trailing spaces in their names. The software automatically removes the preceding or trailing spaces when you save the file. Spaces in the middle of the file name are supported.

This enforcement applies in these cases:
  • Save As dialog box, including the Advanced option
  • Renaming parts and assemblies in the FeatureManager design tree
  • Mirror Components PropertyManager
  • Split PropertyManager and Save Bodies PropertyManager
  • Pack and Go
