What is an .3XE file?

.3XE file extension has been classified as 3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE Files.

.3XE is 3DLinX entity data

The 3xe file extension is mainly related to 3DlinX, a development environment tool developed to make realistic 3D applications.

These .3xe files contain 3DlinX entities.

Looks like the original developer of 3DlinX - Global Majic Software was acquired by AVEVA in 2012 and the fate of this software and its file type is unknown.

.3XE file format is deprecated and this file format is no longer supported.

Currently, .3XE file type is not actively used and is obsolete. This usually happens with system files in older operating systems, files from long-discontinued software, or with previous versions of some file types (documents, projects, images, etc.) that were replaced in later versions of the original programs.


How to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .3xe file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
