Files that contain the .des file extension are normally associated with the Pro/DESKTOP CAD software application. The .des files contain 2D or 3D drawings that have been created with the software program.

The DES files can be viewed as transparent, shaded, enhanced or wireframe images. The Pro/DESKTOP program is commonly used by the education sector.

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.
