SOLIDWORKS Solution Parter

Batch Export SOLIDWORKS Drawing, Part, or Assembly file Preview Bitmap Image to a separate image file.

With this program you can batch export the Preview Bitmap Image from SOLIDWORKS files into a separate directory for various uses. Supported OS: Windows 7 or later.

How it works:

  • [Select Input Directory] Select the parent directory where the SOLIDWORKS files are stored.
  • [Recursive Directory Search] You have the option to do recursive searching to search sub directories as well.
  • [Select Output Directory] This is where you want the images saved.
  • [Maintain Input Directory Structure] This will create sub directories and place the images there to mirror the input directory structure if desired.
  • [SLD???] Select SLDDRW, SLDPRT, SLDASM options for which files to process.
  • [List Only] Choose this option to allow the program to simply display files that it finds without exporting images.
  • [Date Check] This options will only update newer files based on a file date comparison. This is useful when processing large numbers of files repeatedly.
  • [Fail TXT Files] Can be used to also create matching text files if image creation fails, for example in the case of corrupt files or locked files.
  • [Output Image Format] Chose the output image format desired, available options are BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF, TIF.
  • [Process] Press the process button and let the program do its thing.
Note: the demo version will only export the first 10 images per session.
