ARCHICAD file types.
Please note ARCHICAD files come in the following formats:
PLN = standard ARCHICAD file format (extension) containing a single standalone ARCHICAD Project
PLA = ARCHICAD Archive, used to archive old projects and potentially contains all linked objects and textures (similar to an Indesign package)
BPN = a backup file which gets automatically created once you save your ARCHICAD file
MOD = an ARCHICAD module file omits unused attributes from the file.
TEAMWORK = these files can only be accessed by connecting to a Graphisoft BIM Server
LCF = Library Container File
