.SVD File Extension
File Type 1Scanning Vibrometer Data File
What is an SVD file?
Data file created by Polytec scanning vibrometer devices, which are used for measuring the durability of objects that are subjected to stresses and strains; contains a log of the data collected during a stress test; provided as input to PSV Software, a program that visualizes the stress results.
Scanning vibrometers are used by test and simulation engineers to measure structural vibrations.
File Type 2Roland Patch File
.SVD File Association 2
Audio file used by Roland keyboard synthesizers; contains "patches," which are settings that fine tune the playback of a digital instrument; often used for storing instruments and effects; generally loaded onto a Roland synthesizer using a USB key.
File Type 3SolidView Design File
.SVD File Association 3
CAD file created by SolidView, a 2D and 3D computer-aided design software; saves the geometry and measurements for a part or an assembly; used by structural engineers, technical illustrators, manufacturing engineers, and other professionals for saving CAD designs.
SVD files can be viewed with SolidView/Lite, a free program provided by Solid Concepts. The free software also provides the capability to measure the design.
