What is a .CDW file?

The .CDW file extension is associated with KOMPAS Document files, which are specifically created by a software called KOMPAS-3D. KOMPAS-3D is a computer-aided design (CAD) program primarily used for modeling mechanical parts and entire assemblies. These files are important in various stages of product development and manufacturing.

A .CDW file contains detailed CAD drawings and designs. These can include technical illustrations, blueprints, and other design documentation necessary for manufacturing processes. The file format is designed to support the generation of detailed documentation and to facilitate the export of model geometry, which is crucial for manufacturing and other applications like simulation and analysis.

To view or edit .CDW files, you can use the ASCON KOMPAS-3D software, which is the primary program designed for creating and manipulating these files. If you do not need to edit the files but only need to view them, you can use the ASCON KOMPAS-3D Viewer, which is a lighter, viewer-only version of the software. This viewer allows you to open and inspect .CDW files without the full capabilities of the KOMPAS-3D software, making it a convenient option for those who only need to view the designs.
