What is a .SLD file?

The .SLD file extension stands for an AutoCAD Slide File. This type of file is created using the "mslide" program, which comes with the AutoCAD software package. An .SLD file contains an image that captures what is currently displayed in an AutoCAD drawing. These files are typically used to create visual presentations for design reviews, where details of a drawing need to be discussed and analyzed.

To open an .SLD file, you can use the Autodesk AutoCAD 2023 program. This software allows you to view and manage these slide files effectively.

Additionally, if you have multiple .SLD files, you can organize them into a slide library, which uses the .SLB file extension. This is done using the "slidelib" program, another tool included with AutoCAD. For viewing these slides or slide libraries, the "vslide" utility within AutoCAD can be used. This helps in efficiently managing and presenting multiple slides during design projects or reviews.
