What is 3DM file?

3DM format is an 3D model format available as open standard used by Rhinoceros 3D software. 3DM file stores 3D model data, for example, information about surfaces, curves, and points. 3DM files can also store metadata and formatting attributes.

Universality and various applications of 3DM file format

3DM format is very versatile – it may be used to store and share 3D model data among many graphical programs and CAD, CAE, or CAM software. For that purpose 3DM format utilizes NURBS and polygon representations. This allows users to exchange 3D geometry data among various devices and programs. 3DM files are chiefly used in manufacturing, production, and for interactive animations and games.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the 3DM file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the 3DM file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the 3DM file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the 3DM file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the 3DM file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
