The above mentioned extension includes two types of files:

1. Normal 3D Files - Files which are structured as a single native file and behaves as a project file which includes whole assembly with all the model parts e.g. above mentioned all file formats except .iam, .ipt, .CATProduct, .CATPart


2. Assembly and Part Files - Files which are structured as separate assembly files and part files. For such files, assembly file is considered as project file but without part file they are not able to create any assembled geometry (by using geometry from part files). E.g. assembly file (.iam) & its part file (.ipt), assembly file (.CATProduct) & its part file (.CATPart). Assembly files are also known as product files.
