RE: Off-Topic - EPS file format

I've just exported the attached file from Pro-E directly as an EPS file by
simply using File/Export/Image and setting "Type" to EPS. The only problem
is I cannot read it with my normal graphic converter HiJaak Pro, so I'm not
sure it's a useable EPS format. I'm using Pro-E Ver. 20 and HiJaak Pro
4.01. As for the DXF and DWG files HiJaak can convert between either of
these and EPS. I don't know if there are different flavors of EPS (like
there are of DXF) but HiJaak at least claims to be able to convert all
I'm sending a separate mailing to Doug directly with the Pro-E EPS export
attached and would be glad to forward the same to anyone else interested but
I didn't want to burden the entire RPML with it. Please contact me off-line
if you're interested.

It's been a while since I used Pro, but I've done that--and then converting
the .eps to .pdf with GhostScript--and I think it had that built-in, you
just had to change the name of the file to .eps from .plt. Bascially, you
just do a print-to-file to a PostScript printer--either your app gives you
the 'print-to-file' option or you just install a printer driver out of the
ones that come with Windows and set a file as the "port"--and an .EPS is
what you get. If you do the same thing with a plotter, you get a .plt file.

Hi All,
Does anyone know how to create an EPS format file from a Pro/E drawing, DXF
file or DWG file?
Thanx again,
