.ppf File Extension

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

what is a .ppf file?

Files appended with the PPF extension are data part files created by Planit’s Edgecam, a CAM, or Computer-Aided Manufacturing program which is used to design components of a machine. It makes use of basic CAD (Computer-Aided Design) features specifically developed to aid in general manufacturing. Edgecam makes use of powerful automation tools including mill-turn machines, programming milling and turning. It also features knowledge based machining , a G-code generator, associative links to solid models and many more. PPF files are used to contain information on a component model including its display textures, material specifications, toolpaths, machine code, geometry, numerical control (NC) data and other part properties. To open and edit such files, the user may be required to have the file’s authoring software, which is Planit’s EdgeCam. Otherwise, the file may be converted to another format to enable viewing through other programs.

how to open a .ppf file?

Launch a .ppf 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 .ppf file will open it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ppf 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, .ppf. 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.
