Nov 26: SYCODE Releases Pro/ENGINEER File Import Plug-in for AutoCAD
Panaji, GOA – 26th November 2009 – SYCODE has released a Pro/ENGINEER file import plug-in for AutoCAD. The plug-in allows users to import Pro/ENGINEER part and assembly files into AutoCAD without the need of a Pro/ENGINEER license on the computer or network.
“Data exchange between Pro/ENGINEER and AutoCAD is largely one way street,” explains Deelip Menezes, Founder and CEO of SYCODE.“Pro/ENGINEER has the ability to read 2D and 3D data from AutoCAD DWG and DXF files. But the reverse is not possible. This is not that big a problem since data exchange between AutoCAD and Pro/ENGINEER mostly involves converting a 2D drawing or a 3D solid in AutoCAD to a 3D model in Pro/ENGINEER. However, in recent releases Autodesk has added significant 3D solid modeling capabilities to AutoCAD, but has not matched it with the ability to read proprietary 3D data from solid modeling systems like Pro/ENGINEER. Pro/ENGINEER Import for AutoCAD gives AutoCAD users the ability to open 3D solid models designed in Pro/ENGINEER and carry out solid modeling operations on them
