Re: AutoCAD to Pro-E?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I do not believe it is possible, but I have not looked at the option for many years.  Try www.ptc.com , the Parametric Technology Corporation website.  ProEngineer (Pro-E) is a full parametric solid modeling program that consists of a whole range of "modules" from concept design to thermal and structural analysis and direct machining / manufacturing capability.  It is a mechanical engineering package (and I do not mean HVAC) that is used for product design and manufacturing.  The price and the capabilities make AutoCad look like a childs toy.  I have never heard of anyone trying to use the Pro-E suite for any type of Architectural or Construction related industry, other than maybe advanced piping systems for refining operations.
 
What are you trying to do that requires compatibility with Pro-E?  (just curious)

Subject: AutoCAD to Pro-E?

I know nothing about Pro-E.  Can any of you tell me whether it is possible to produce drawings in AutoCAD 2000 format and convert them to Pro-E and if so, what it would take to do this?
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Ken
