Anyone know where I can find a pic of the record breaking Pro/E design?



I heard from some friends that it was an oil rig, but I haven'tfoudn anything from a google search.



Anyone know what might be the largest pro/e design to date?

If we are talking about the same thing then there is a picture of it on the wall of the PTC classroom here in Dallas. I don't know what it is called or I'm sure you could find a pic online.



I believe it was the largest in terms of parts/features.

This is just a testimonial an the Hp site, but they talk of a model with some 500,000 components. It is a parking garage with all the nuts and bolts, literally. They don't show a picture of the model on this site or on the company's site which created the model. I would have looked more, but I didn't want to miss any of the Outsourcing Overseas post! That thing is almost as entertaining as what is it???????!

Check this one out also. No where near 500K parts but very impressive nonetheless...

I have an image of this that was rendered in Photorender

but it's ~115KB - to large to upload. How can I shrink the

size so I can post it?



Thanks,

I'm looking for: most features, parts, largest disk space taken, etc, etc...



I was told that it was once accidentally opened on a desktop computer - took a week to load....

Now that's a long accident....



My personal record breaking pro/e part is a plastic child carseat: 1700 features in one part, all surfaces, no patterns, about 120MB



Now why didn't you use solids ? Surfaces are only good by way of construction - you can't do mass props or much of any other type of analysis with a pure surface model..

Apparently, it was accidentally opened in a Pro/E class. The class was being held at the customers site. one of the students was dorking around on the sites' intranet directory, and double clicked on the assembly file!!!

I know this thing exists (if it is the same thing I am thinking of) because there was a poster of it on the wall of the PTC training room and the instructor of that class told the story behind it. I don't remember that much about what it was, I beileve it was an industrial plant of some sort.



Hmmm..I guess I can send him an email and ask him if he could tell me something but that is only asuming that he still works for PTC.

This should work to put it in your post:

for your other question:

The form allow you to attach files larger than 50K to posts, but they can only be attached as .zip or .tar



Now...I hate to complain but did anyone look at my last post? Is what you were looking for?

Thanks aandersen but I don't understand what you mean with <img src=http://www.../someinmage.jpg>.



I tried to upload a 113KB zip file of the image but got the following message:



Your file is too large. Please try again.



So it appears you can't upload a zip file greater then 50KB either.

There is no size limit for attaching a .zip file.



Do not try to link a .zip file by trying to upload an image.



Attach a .zip file by clicking the paperclip icon in the upper right hand corner of your post after you post a message.
