What is an MCD file?

Design created by Vectorworks CAD applications, which were previously developed under the MiniCAD brand; contains a design draft such as a technical drawing or a 2D or 3D model; used for storing drafted plans before construction or manufacturing.

More Information

MCD files were used through Vectorworks version 12, but Vectorworks now uses the .VWX extension in versions 2008 and later. Version 2008 was the successor to version 12.

NOTE: MCD files can be converted to VWX files in Vectorworks 2008 or later. VWX and some MCD files can also be viewed with the free Vectorworks Viewer programs, which are named "Vectorworks YYYY Viewer," where "YYYY" is the four-digit calendar release year of the viewer.
