Can't open a 3D file?

When you click a file to open it, operating system examines the filename extension. If operating system recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When operating system does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message:

”Can't open this file: example.3D”。

To open this file, you install one of the applications from the list of software programs that you found here, you should be able to open, edit or convert the file with the 3D extension without any issue.


Where I can download the application that support 3D file?

What else may cause problems width open a 3D file?

The reasons for the lack of the ability to open a 3D file on your computer may be at least several. The easiest thing is to find a suitable application installed on your computer, which will open a 3D file. If there is still something wrong, you might want to check:

  • Whether the 3D file is damaged.
  • Whether the 3D file is incorrectly linked in the registry entries.
  • Whether the 3D file extension has been accidentally removed from the Windows registry.
  • Whether the installation of an application that supports the 3D file format is incompletely.
  • Whether the 3D file is infected.
  • Whether the drivers of the equipment used for opening a 3D file are up to date.
  • Whether your computer has enough hardware resources to open a 3D file.

If the 3D file still not working with your software after eliminating the above shortcomings? That means that the problem is more complex and requires the help of a specialist.
