AMF File - opening and understanding

Did your computer fail to open an AMF file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .AMF files.

What is an AMF file?

An .AMF file is an Additive Manufacturing Format file. These AMF files contain the description of designs used in processes like 3D printing. These files are created by Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software to describe the shape and compositions of 3D objects. The AMF format is XML-based and contains more information than just points to create a 3D structure, e.g., color codes and materials.
