Opening DAE files

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

What is a DAE file?

The .dae file extension is most commonly associated with COLLADA 3D graphic files. The DAE files allow users to transmit 3D graphics files across multiple graphics applications. The DAE file format is based on COLLADA, which is an XML-based schema that allows different authoring tools to work together seamlessly.

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.
