But Pro/Engineer comes standard with STL input and even though the .stl file
may be approximate to some extent, reverse engineering a boss by 3 point
circle fitting to reveal a 5.00033 diameter can be pretty safely assumed to
be 5mm. These "things" in .stl, whatever they might be, were designed and
drawn by humans and it is their intentions which need to be reverse
enginneered, not the triangles.

STL input into Pro/E is optional with one of the advanced surfacing packages
that cost more money.
