How closely did it resemble the original? Can you afford to hand check every model to be sure every feature came in correctly? Can you afford not to?jerryt said:Thanks for the responses.
FYI - we sent this Industrial Design firm our current Pro/E assembly with 700 components and they were able to open it in Solidworks.
Alright this thread is quite old, but nonetheless there's very little info on this topic available. Is there a known incompatibility between 64-bit Pro/Engineer and the 32-bit DLLs for the SW API? Seems like there's going to be...?You can directly import Solidworks native part and assembly files with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0.
Pro/ENGINEER FoundationXE Base License is required as well as Solidworks Explorer 2008 which is available for download on the Solidworks website.

At this point will it just be dumb geometry like importing a STEP file?If you want to change the geometry e.g usung Flexible modeling Creo will prompt that now you must convert the part to a Creo file if you want to continue. At this point you will break the associtation with the original SW file.
Yes, then it will be the normal import with dumb geometry. Of course, everything looks good in the demos but Flexible Modeling seems pretty impressive. It's very rare that you would drastic changes to a part from legacy data.At this point will it just be dumb geometry like importing a STEP file?
