File extension .EDZ
|ProductView Compressed Package||Parametric Technology Corporation||Archive Files|
The EDZ file extension represents ProductView Compressed Package, an archive format developed by PTC and used for storing data created with Creo Elements/Pro ProductView visualization software. It is used as an alternative format to EDX files developed for consolidating CAD model views along with their associated configurable product structures, state and visual properties.
Format Specifications and Characteristics
The EDZ or ProductView Compressed Package format utilizes the ZIP compression technique for storing its virtual part data which includes B-Rep tessellation, PMI annotations, properties and images. It also helps in reducing the space taken up by Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire models, thus ensuring a more efficient use of hard disk resources. The file can provide parts, assemblies and drawings for design review with zoom and magnification abilities.
Similar File Extensions
Other similar file types include CATPart, CATProduct, DRW, IAS, IPT, EASM, EDR, EDS, PAR, and eDrawing. The latter is an exchange format used to view two-dimensional CAD drawing files with other applications that support the same.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .EDZ) 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 .EDZ 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 .EDZ 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 .EDZ 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 .EDZ extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .EDZ file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .EDZ 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 .EDZ file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .EDZ file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .EDZ file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
