Save SOLIDWORKS Documents as Previous Versions

Beginning with SOLIDWORKS 2024, you can save SOLIDWORKS parts, assemblies, and drawings created or saved in the latest version of SOLIDWORKS as fully functional documents in a previous version of SOLIDWORKS. You can save documents back to the previous two releases. Pack and Go also supports this functionality.

This previous release compatibility lets you share files with others who use one of the two previous versions of SOLIDWORKS. You cannot extend the previous release compatibility beyond those two releases. For example, SOLIDWORKS 2024 users can save documents as SOLIDWORKS 2023 and SOLIDWORKS 2022 versions.
SOLIDWORKS users must have an active subscription license to access this functionality. 3DEXPERIENCE users are active subscribers by default.
