.dsd File Extension

Developer: Autodesk
File type: AutoCAD Drawing Set Description File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dsd. Files with the file extension .dsd can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dsd files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dsd file?

AutoCAD drawing set description files are settings files saved in the DSD format, and these DSD files are also called properties files. The AutoCAD 2013 software creates and uses files appended with the .dsd extension. This application is classified as CAD productivity software, and the data in a DSD file usually consists of settings or details used for the publication of digital drawings stored in DWF formats. These DSD files may also be used for the publication of drawings in other supported plotter formats. Autodesk developed the AutoCAD 2013 software and the DSD format for storing reusable publication configuraitions implemented for a wide variety of output format types. The content of a DSD file may also consist of dialogue box items entered by the author of the project output document. Data automatically populates dialogue boxes, specifically with pre-selected items in the project output document, and the publication process done by the software implements this when a DSD document is being referenced by the application.

how to open a .dsd file?

Launch a .dsd file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dsd file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dsd files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dsd file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dsd file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dsd files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dsd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
