MULTICAx Pro/Engineer PD Plug-in in a Nutshell

The MULTICAx Pro/Engineer PD Plug-in allow users to import Pro/Engineer (ProE) native parts and assembly models into V5. ProE part geometry is converted into the CATIA Graphical Representation (CGR) or V5 Part (CATPart) format, while ProE assembly files are imported into a V5 product structure document (CATProduct).

 Users may perform this import either:

  • Interactively (for all V5 platforms)
  • From a command line (all V5 platforms except 3d com)s
