Data In, Data Out

The Product Update Briefing for Pro/ENGINEER Data Exchange was today as well. Asa Trainer, the PLM for that group of functionality was on hand to conduct it himself. A lot of interesting news on this front, which includes the Import data Doctor product.

A few of the highlights are:

  • Direct import support for Solidworks 2007 & 2008.
  • Direct import support for Autodesk Inventor
  • Expanded granite based interoperability between releases of Pro/ENGINEER
  • 3D data exchange of non geometric data such as parameter values, annotations, and layer status. This is becoming increasing important in the area of line term data archiving.
  • Improved Import data Doctor interface even beyond the overhaul done in Wildfire 4.0.

On the horizon (not in 5.0 beyond perhaps beta testing) is a product they are calling the Legacy Drawing Associator. Quite simply this is a tool to associate imported drawings to the imported modals that once drove them. The tool will extend to associting the views and annotations too.
