What is an .AFN file?

.AFN is ArtCAM font

The afn file extension is associated with the ArtCAM, a artistic CAD CAM tool for Microsoft Windows used to create professional designs.

The afn file stores font in ArtCAM compatible font file format.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .afn 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.
