There are a number of different file types available for download on the Harwin website – please check the appropriate section.
Files ending .pdf
PDF files are generated and viewed within Adobe Acrobat products. If you get a file error while trying to view one of these files, please check you’re using the latest version of Adobe Reader.
Other products are available, but this program should work in all cases, including 3D PDFs.
Files ending .zip
ZIP files are a compressed file format that stores other file types. There are multiple choices of ZIP file extractors – later Windows and Macs even have one built in, no additional software is necessary. If you need additional software, you can download a free trial version of the popular Winzip from their website.
Files ending .xls or .xlsx
These file types are specific to Microsoft Office Excel. If you don’t have this software, you can download a free software suite called LibreOffice to view these files. Please note, we cannot confirm the level of compatibility with Microsoft Excel.
Files ending .stp or .igs
These file types are both 3D CAD model files, and you’ll need 3D CAD software to open them. We’re unable to recommend a specific CAD software.
