How to open FACTORY files

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

What is a FACTORY file?

FACTORY files are Simplify3D Factory session data files, which you can read more about below.

The FACTORY file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a FACTORY opener may not be able to open all kinds of FACTORY files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
