Opening RPF files

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

What is a RPF file?

The .rpf file extension is used for a data file format that was developed by Autodesk, Inc. An RPF file is also classified as a 3D graphics and CAD (computer aided design) file. These .rpf files are also called Autodesk AutoCAD pattern definition files, and are generated by the AutoCAD software. This program was designed by Autodesk, Inc. as a CAD tool for Windows PCs.

RPF stands for raister pattern file. These .rpf files contain pattern definitions, which are used by the main document output file of a CAD project that has been created using the AutoCAD software. These pattern definitions are entered and saved in an RPF file by a user through the pattern design tools of the AutoCAD program.

The AutoCAD application can be used to open and view the content of these .rpf files. This software can also be used to edit the pattern definitions that are stored in an RPF file.

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.
