Opening PRT files

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

What is a PRT file?

The .prt file extension is most commonly associated with the Pro/ENGINEER CAD software application. Files with the .prt extension contain part files that are created with the program. These files are used in the design of manufactured parts and contain part information including the structure of the part and a 3D model. Multiple PRT files can be combined into an assembly file, which is given the .asm file extension.

The .prt file extension is also used for Dr.Halo printer driver files, P-CAD component files, IRMA Workstation for Windows printer configuration files, WordPerfect Presentations document template files and Microsoft Schedule+ print files.

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.
