BS file extension - Ball and Stick chemical modeller file

What is bs file? How to open bs files?

File type specification:

3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type icon 3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type

The bs file extension is used for some chemical modeller files that contain data in form of Ball and Stick models. Probably used in some specialized chemistry programs.

Ball-and-stick models and space-filling models (also known as Calotte models) are 3D or spatial molecular models which serve to display the structure of chemical products and substances or biomolecules. 

With ball-and-stick models, the centers of the atoms are connected by straight lines which represent the covalent bonds. Double and triple bonds are often represented by springs, which form curved connections between the balls. The bond angles and bond lengths reflect the actual relationships, while the space occupied by the atoms is either not represented at all, or only denoted essentially by the relative sizes of the spheres.

Help how to open BS files:

Currently there is no specific information available, about how to open files with this particular extension. However, you can usually open or import 3D graphics files to various 3D modeling tools or engineering programs. Each program has it's own set of supported formats, so it's always worthwhile to check it's developer websites for available options.

How to convert file with extension BS:

Various 3D models or CAD files can be typically exported to some exchange format or converted between different formats. Once again, not all CAD/3D modeling programs may allow conversion of every format. But, there is always the option of using some of the dedicated 3D conversion utilities with a broad file format support.
