Pro/Concept is a totally separate program from Pro/Engineer.



It requires a separate license completely.



If your reseller thinks that Pro/Concept falls under Pro/Engineer's
Surfacing and Styling tools (or they simply didn't know enough about
Pro/Concept to tell you it isn't), then they obviously do not know the
products which they are selling you. You should look for another
reseller if this is the case.



I used to work for a re-seller, and I regularly had to fight fires
started by the salespeople who would say pretty much anything in order
to close a deal.

if you are looking for good export possibilities to Pro/E I wouldnt choose Pro/Concept....
It has very limited export and the modelling tools aren't that impressive either.'


I tested it a while ago and the feature I liked bestwas the ability to sketch or paint on 3D-surfaces.


If youre buying flex3c then you have an excellent tool in ISDX.

If you want to shape your initial designs more freely without any parametric constraints I would recomend Rhino. Great modelling tools and a fair price too.
You can import/export to Pro/E (non-parametric of course)
www.rhino3d.com


(Check the Penguin also, a cool non-photorealistic renderer...)





BTW, theres a free try-before-you-buy version of pro/concept you can download from ptc website. It has full functionality except for the rendering as far as I remember.

Pro/CONCEPT is not listed. I just started the video from PTC and it appears to be a separate application (Not inside Pro/Engineer). You have to have a Maintenance Contract with a login to view the video.

We have Flex 3C and have nothing in the installation directory concerning Pro/CONCEPT. I tried to contact our sales rep to confirm that it is a separate module, but he could not be reached at the moment. I'll post if I find out.

I think files from Rhino and Max would work similar in Pro/E.
You need to export in a format that PRo/E can read, STEP for example, and therefore the geometry is non-parametric. You can add features and remove material, but not modify it the way you wouldwith pro/e geometry.

If you take files from 3D Studio Max or Rhino, make sure the surfaces are Nurb surfaces not polymesh.


I import Rhino surfaces into Pro/E all the time, Rhino surfaces are complete garbage.
