ASC files are Autodesk text files that store information about objects in your drawing, including their location, size and color. This makes them a popular choice for exchanging drawings between different CAD programs. ASC files can be opened with Autodesk’s software products. Autodesk provides the option to import ASC files from within the application. ASC files can be opened in any text editor such as Microsoft Notepad, Notepad++, and Apple TextEdit.
ASC File Format
ASC files are stored to disc in plain ASCII text file format. These are human readable.
