Opening SXE files

Have a problem opening a .SXE file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what SXE files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .SXE file type?

The .sxe filename extension belongs to the ProfiCAD Drawing (SXE) file format/type. A multilingual .NET application for MS Windows, ProfiCAD is a quality commercial CAD (Computer-Aided Design) tool, mainly focused on electrical engineering. ProfiCAD comes with a large store of symbols and provides an assortment of advanced features, like generation of netlists and bills of materials, display of striped wires, and others.

An .sxe file is a ProfiCAD drawing. It is usually a representation of an electrical schematic with various interconnected electrical component symbols. Any drawing created with ProfiCAD is saved as an .sxe file. SXE is a proprietary format, and .sxe drawings are meant to be opened and otherwise used with ProfiCAD only.

ProfiCAD comes with several drawing templates, located in the ProfiCAD samples directory (e.g., "C:\Users\Public\Documents\ProfiCAD Samples"). Following the instructions and using the "proficad2dxf.exe" utility provided with ProfiCAD, SXE drawings can be exported to the DXF/DWG (Autodesk AutoCAD 2007) format. ProfiCAD also maintains a free online converter for the same task.
