DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER is an AutoCAD DWG file import plug-in for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire�?�®. It gives Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire the ability to mesh objects from AutoCAD DWG files as solids models in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire. Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire already has the ability to read AutoCAD DWG files. However, when importing DWG files into Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3D mesh objects are ignored. DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER gives Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire the ability to read 3D mesh objects in an AutoCAD DWG file and import them as solid bodies in a Pro/ENGINEER part document. A polygon mesh in a DWG file is comprised of a set of triangular and quad faces. DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER creates trimmed planar surfaces for each triangle and quad and knits them together to create a solid body. If the polygon mesh is closed (i.e. it does not contain boundary edges) then DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER will create a closed body feature, otherwise an open surface will be created. DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER is very easy to use. Once installed, it must be loaded into the Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire environment. Follow the simple instructions in the ReadMe document which can be found in the installation folder. Once loaded, it adds new commands to Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire and a submenu called "DWGImport" to the Pro/ENGINEER menu. The 'DWGImport' submenu consists of the following commands: * Import - Imports a DWG file * Help - Displays the DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER help file * Register - Registers your copy of DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER * About - Displays the DWG Import for Pro/ENGINEER About box
