How to Upload a 2D File

Uploading, Downloading, and Organizing Files


Once in a project, click the ‘Upload’ button (Upload Files) on the left drawer and click ‘Individual Files’. Supported 2D file formats include: PDF, DWG, DXF, DWF, IDW and F2D.



Once the ‘Individual File Upload’ window appears, either drag and drop the file(s) you wish to upload, or click ‘Choose Files’ to browse your file system. 

Once you have pulled in all of the files you wish to upload, click ‘Upload Files’. You can cancel file uploads at anytime by clicking the ‘Cancel’ button.

Note that if the drawing references other drawing files, all files must be gathered and uploaded using the ‘Assembly’ upload option instead. The main drawing must be selected as the ‘Parent Assembly File’. 

SOLIDWORKS drawing files (SLDDRW) can also be uploaded through the Gradient SOLIDWORKS add-in. Please note that SLDDRW files will be converted to the DWG file format before being uploaded to Gradient.
