.xas File Extension

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

what is a .xas file?

The .xas file extension is used by files that were created using the application called Pro Engineer. This application is used for designing manufactured processes and components as well as in mechanical engineering. The files that contain this extension that are created by the program are known as assembly files and they allow users to save time retrieving particular assembly instances because they make it unnecessary for the application to load generic geometry and family tables. One of the most common applications used to open these files is the Parametric Technology Creo, a design application that focuses on the promotion of the best design practices not compromising the standards of the company. It is packed with amazing features and tools for best productivity and using this application saves users time when it comes to translating data as well as users can avoid mistakes as well. The .xas files can also be opened with the use of other applications such as Adobe Acrobat.

how to open a .xas file?

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

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 .xas 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, .xas. 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.
