Ye Olde Mini Cad Files

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately not if they are indeed Minicad 3 files.

But you could try this conversion program for converting Minicad 5 or newer files to VW 10.5 format in case these drawing are Minicad 5 or later but still too old to open with e.g. VW 10.



Scroll down to the bottom of that page until you see "Vectorworks oude bestanden omzetten"

The first link below that is for the Mac version and works only on OS9

The second link is for the Windows version.

Even though it may be in Dutch, it is a simple drag and drop to start conversion , or the open command in the file (or "Bestand" if Dutch) menu.


Unfortunately my copy of Minicad 5 used a dongle which I had to return for the new USB one when upgrading to a later version, otherwise I could have used that copy to try to convert the files.
