What is an .BDL file?

.BDL is CoCreate Bundle File

A BDL file is a data file created by CoCreate CAD software programs such as CoCreate Modeling, SolidDesigner, and OneSpace Designer. It stores a bundle of all data for a 2D or 3D design and is used to save and load model data.

CoCreate programs were superseded by PTC Creo in June 2011 when PTC Creo was released. PTC Creo still supports the BDL format.
