File extension .A2C

File description

The A2C file format refers to a 3-D model that is used and created by Alice, which happens to be a 3-D programming environment for educational purposes. The file format is saved as a compressed 3D model format which can consist of edges, polygons and vertices. It may be viewed and edited as a 3D object in the Alice application and can be easily exported to various other 3D file formats such as AI, ASE, DWG, DXF.

If you prefer to edit these files in the Alice application, You need to first convert it back to the A2C file format.

The .A2C file extension can correspond to several not related file formats. If there is more than one file format with the .A2C extension, you will probably find most of them at this website. Remember that you need to download a program to support a particular file type. So first look through the entire contents of the website to select a program to support just the file you have.

Other possible reasons why your .A2C file does not want to open

In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .A2C file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:

1. Incorrect version of the installed application

A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .A2C file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .A2C file, so download the update and check again.

2. Incorrect .A2C file association with the program

If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:

  • Right-click the .A2C file
  • Go to the "Open with" - then "Choose default program ..."
  • Locate the appropriate application
  • Click "OK"

3. The file is corrupt

It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
