re: bad ProE to STL?

Dear Andreas,
DeskArtes 3Data Expert downloadable at can probably
solve your clients' problem.

ProE is known to produce good STL, but in the following cases our
clients have
experienced problems and prefered to take the route from IGES via
software to RP:

1. Complex assemblies which ProE hasn't been able to translate into STL
2. Pro/Designer models
3. Models which have parts in them which come from other CAD/CAM

There is also a version of ProE were the default parameters for STL
output are bad, and
some users of that version prefer to go via IGES and DeskArtes 3Data

Please, feel free to download the software and request an id in the
About Box of the
Help menu. Incidentally, a new version was just released this month!

Best regards

Maria Nordgren

     hello everyone,
     a customer asked me, how to export a bad Pro Engineer part to
     he wasn't able to do so in ProE because of several problems
     surfaces and edges.
     there is no chance to repair the ProE part completly in time
     has anybody of you had a similar problem in the past? are
     there any
     tools which can import a bad ProE or iges-part and exports
     this as a
     stl-part in a better way than ProE does? there is no need to
     have a
     perfect stl-file, because the rp-part would be scaled down,
     which means
     that small features wouldn't be buildt, anyway.

     thanks in advance,
