  • Importing STL and IGES into Pro/E

    Hi all

    I'm a M-Phil student at Cambridge working on the biomechanics of the elbow
    and I am looking to import CT-Scans of the Humerus, Ulna and Radius into

    I have completed the scans and am awaiting a license for the trial version of mimics to
    convert the DICOM files to STL format or IGES.

    I am running Pro/Engineer 2001 and my aim is to import these bones into
    Pro/E and then Pro/M (motions/integrated mode) to detect misfit and clashes
    in the joint.

    I am having problems importing STL and IGES files into Pro/E. I have tried
    importing basic IGES files into PRO/E for practice but cannot redefine the
    features to create a protrusion using quilt. The Use Quilt option is blanked
    out for some reason and therefore the iges file remains a surface rather
    than a solid.

    STL files won't even load into my version of Pro/E. It comes up with an
    Prompt for a name for the STL part and then an error message comes up saying
    "Could not Read STL file." I am wondering if I am missing a compiler or

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your Time

    Best Regards
