A .PRJPCBSTRUCTURE file is a Altium Designer PCB Project Structure, created by Altium.

Open with Altium Designer. Available for Windows.

What is a .PRJPCBSTRUCTURE file?

A .PRJPCBSTRUCTURE file is a type of data file specifically used in conjunction with Altium Designer, which is a computer-aided design (CAD) software application. Altium Designer is primarily used for designing printed circuit boards (PCBs), which are essential components in electronic devices. These boards connect electronic components using conductive pathways.

When a user of Altium Designer starts a new PCB project, they create a file with the .PRJPCB extension, which stands for "Project PCB." Along with this project file, Altium Designer automatically generates a .PRJPCBSTRUCTURE file. This additional file contains crucial information about the structure and hierarchy of the project. Essentially, it helps organize and manage the various elements and layers of the PCB design within the project.

To view or modify a .PRJPCBSTRUCTURE file, you must use Altium Designer, as it is the program that creates and understands the specific data and format of these files. Other software applications are not compatible with this file type, meaning they cannot open or process the file correctly. If you are working on PCB designs and need to access a .PRJPCBSTRUCTURE file, you should do so through Altium Designer to ensure that all data is handled accurately and effectively.
