Converting SLDPRT to STP: A Quick Tutorial

May 23, 2024

Are you struggling to open SLDPRT files in your CAD software? Converting them to STP (Standard for the Exchange of Product model data) format can solve this issue. Here's a quick tutorial on how to do it.

Step 1: Open your SolidWorks software and load the SLDPRT file you want to convert.

Step 2: Go to 'File' and select 'Save As.' Choose 'STL' as the file type.

Step 3: Select a destination folder and give the file a name. Click 'Save' to export the SLDPRT file as an STL file.

Step 4: Next, you'll need to use a third-party software to convert the STL file to STP format. There are many free online converters available that can handle this task.

Step 5: Upload the exported STL file to the online converter. Select 'STP' as the output format and begin the conversion process.

Step 6: Once the conversion is complete, download the STP file to your computer.

That's it! You now have a converted STP file ready to be opened in any CAD software that supports this format.

Keep in mind that during the conversion process, some details of the original SLDPRT file may be altered, especially for complex geometries and features. It's always a good idea to review the converted file in your CAD software to ensure that everything looks as intended.

Converting SLDPRT to STP can be a life-saver when collaborating with colleagues or clients who use different CAD software. It's a quick and easy solution to ensure seamless file compatibility.

So, the next time you encounter compatibility issues with your SLDPRT files, remember that converting them to STP is just a few simple steps away. Happy modeling!
