Opening AFS files

Did your computer fail to open an AFS file? We explain what AFS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your AFS files.

What is an AFS file?

Files that contain the .afs file extension are most commonly associated with project files that have been created by the STAAD.foundation CAD software application.

The STAAD.foundation CAD software is used to create and study construction foundations, including details about the foundation components and the physical properties of the foundation structure. Components that this software helps engineers study include concrete slabs and soils.

The Adobe Type Manager is also known to use the .afs file suffix. These files contain font set files that are used within the Adobe Type Manager application.

The Sega Dreamcast gaming console games also use the .afs file extension for compressed audio files that are used in Dreamcast video games.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
