File extension .DC
|DesignCAD CAD Format||IMSI/Design||CAD Files|
The DC (DesignCAD Design File) file extension is used by DesignCAD a powerful design and drafting application developed by IMSI/Design LLC. The program is used by design professionals in various engineering industries to create detailed designs and draft layouts. The DC file contains all the shapes, sketches, texts, colors, fills and properties of the layout being designed. This type of file can be saved in 2D or 3D format and can be exported into other popular graphics formats such as BMP, JPG, PCX or DXF.
DC File Structure
The DC file format contains all the data for a design and drafting project including geometric objects such as points, lines, circles, arcs and polygons as well as layers, colors and styles attributes. This type of file also saves more advanced elements such as textures, 3D pathways, 3D viewing window along with any comments, notes or images that are part of the output. It also stores the current ruler settings and different units used for measurement. There are similar file extensions to DC files such as .DWG, .DXF, .VCG and .DRW.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .DC) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .DC extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .DC file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .DC extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .DC extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .DC file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .DC file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .DC file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .DC file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .DC file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
