What is an .3DC file?

.3DC is RacerMate 3D Course File

Training course file used by Computrainer 3D, a simulation software for RacerMate's CompuTrainer and Velotron electronic bicycle ergometers/trainers; contains a racing track, including road and elevation characteristics; used for storing actual real-world courses, as well as rehabilitation courses for physical therapy.

RacerMate software interacts with a stationary exercise bicycle and responds to motion as the user pedals and steers the bicycle. In this manner, riders can train for cycling events using simulation.

File Type 2 iGO 3D Building File
Developer by: NNG Category: GIS Files

GPS data file used by iGO software; contains 3D building data and corresponding metadata; saved to the \iGO\content\building\ directory of the navigation unit's storage card.

NOTE: NNG, the developers of iGO products, were formerly known as Nav N Go.

File Type 3 3DCrafter Scene File
Developer by: Amabilis Software Category: 3D Image Files Format: Binary

Three-dimensional scene created by 3DCrafter, a 3D modeling and animation program formerly named 3D Canvas; includes the geometry of the scene and includes shapes, materials, and lighting effects; used for creating 3D images and animations, and may be exported to an .AVI file.

File Type 4 3DCT 3D Image
Developer by: 3D Compression Technologies Category: 3D Image Files Format: Binary

Three-dimensional image created using the 3DCT 3D image compression software or the 3DCT modeling software plug-in; contains a compressed 3D image; used for reducing the file size of standard 3D formatted images and sharing them over email, which is useful for design reviews.

3DCT can create 3DC files from several formats, including .STL, .PLY, .OBJ, .3DS, .LWO, .DXF, .VRML, and .OFF. It also can export Rhino .3DM files if the plugin is installed with Rhino.

NOTE: 3DC files can be viewed with the free 3DCT Viewer program.

File Type 5 RoboCell Cell Setup File
Developer by: Intelitek Category: CAD Files

Project file created by RoboCell, a program used for SCORBOT robot modeling and simulation; stores a configuration of 3D robot components in a "workcell;" allows a SCORBASE program to be run visually in a 3D virtual environment.

RoboCell is used for integrating SCOREBASE robotic control software with 3D modeling and simulation capabilities. It is used in educational environments.

NOTE: Robocell has been discontinued.

How to solve problems with 3DC files

  • Associate the 3DC file extension with the correct application. On :
    Windows: Right click on any 3DC file and then click "Open with" > "Choose another app". Now select another program and check the box "Always use this app to open *.3DC files". Mac: Right click (or Ctrl-click) the 3DC file, then click "Open with" > "Other...". Then choose another program and check the "Always Open With" box. Linux: Right click on the file, and select "Open with" and choose another program. iPhone: Tap the file.
