  • Modelling using STL files and ProEng

    Dear Phil,
    Dear colleagues,
    Good and long experience with STL files and ProEngineer
    you can find in the Manufacturing Centre of the Cardiff University.
    Using my name you can contact for example

    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
