DataCAD 11 does not have the ability to save in *.DC5 format.
DataCAD 11 features a new double-precision database format, and a new file extension of *.AEC. The new format uses 14 decimal places to store the math that defines the geometry in your file.
When you open a legacy *.DC5 file in version 11, the program makes a copy of your file in the new double-precision format. Converting back to the single-precision *.DC5 format would not only be impractical, it would also produce undesirable results, as it would have to round off values which would make your data inaccurate.
