.prt File Extension

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

what is a .prt file?

The Pro/ENGINEER software from Parametric Technology is a CAD application that uses files with the .prt extension as part files of projects saved by users. Pro/ENGINEER can be used for developing assembly systems and manufacturing processes for a wide variety of projects useful in different industries, including construction and engineering. These PRT files consist of important project details. These may include project part structure specifics and 3D modelling attributes. Project files of the Pro/ENGINEER software use the ASM extension. Also called assembly files or projects, these .asm files may consist of multiple .prt files. Users can combine and share different PRT files in a single ASM project, which is useful for project or groupware collaboration. Aside from using the Pro/ENGINEER software to create, open, view and modify PRT files, Adobe Acrobat X may also be used to open files with the .prt extension, along with other programs like Okino Computer Graphics PolyTrans, Parametric Technology Creo and Autodesk Inventor Fusion.

how to open a .prt file?

Launch a .prt 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 .prt 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 .prt files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .prt file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .prt file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .prt file



PTC (Parametric Technology Corporation) is the developer of Pro/Engineer that is now known as Creo Elements/Pro. This supports windows operating system such as winxp SP2 (home and professional edition), Win7 (ultimate, enterprise, business and home premium), and winvista (same with win7). Both 32 and 64 bit are supported. The minimum requirements are 512 MB RAM, 3D capable video card, Pentium III of faster processor and at least 400 MB. In addition, users must install the OpenGL application and Internet connection in order to activate the product. It is essential to activate Pro/Engineer within three days. Pro/Engineer has three main functions and those are analysis, manufacturing and engineering design. Its analysis tool will enable users to weigh the balance of each side of the object created. The engineering tool will help users with the geometric pattern, free hand tool, and reverse engineering with PC (Point Cloud) data. This also supports 2D creation.
Parametric Technology Creo

Parametric Technology Creo

Parametric Technology Creo refers to not only a single application developed by Parametric Technology Corporation, but it refers to a family of design software used to support product design by discrete manufacturers. This family of application contains apps that deliver a set of distinct capabilities aimed for developing products. Users can run Creo on Microsoft Windows and the applications it contain are either for 2D design, 3D direct modeling, schematic design, viewing and visualization, 3D CAD, technical illustrations as well as Finite Element Analysis and simulation. The set of applications of Parametric Technology Creo are the Creo Parametric, the Creo Direct, the Creo Simulate, and the Creo layout, Creo Schematics, Creo Illustrate, Creo Sketch, Creo View MCAD, and Creo View ECAD. Parametric Technology Creo supports multiple languages such as English, Korean, German, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, etc. and it is categorized as CAD design software that runs on Windows. Creo features allow users to perform their designing tasks with ease.
Adobe Acrobat x

Adobe Acrobat x

Adobe Acrobat X is a PDF management software, which is a set of various applications for the use of Portable Document Format or PDF files. It allows a user to not just view PDF files but also create from scratch or through a template available on the program, manage, print, and share. The 10th version of Acrobat, which is called Adobe Acrobat X, was first introduced in the year 2010 on November 15. It has new cool features like “sandboxing” protection to secure PDF files for the later versions of Windows OS computers, particularly Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. This version of Acrobat X is also made compatible with Mac OS, iOS and Android, but not with Linux. The newest version of Acrobat X is Adobe Acrobat XI, which is the 11th version, that was recently announced last October 1, 2012 and expected to be commercially available on October 15, 2012. It is packed with a graphical user interface that is originated from the 10th version for all desktop systems. However, it has new cool features such as the ability to export PDF files to Microsoft PowerPoint presentation file, integration of cloud services, and touch friendly capabilities for compact mobile devices.

a word of warning

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