  • Pro/E CAD models

    Does anyone here use Pro/E? I've been having trouble setting up my cad=part, and I suspect that it's because of the orientation of my CAD model. Working with it just today, I ended up with z going off to my right when I set my alignment up the same as the part...the features lined up, but the image of the probe sure didn't! any ideas?

    Are you doing an iterative alignment and then cad = part
    sigpic.....Its called golf because all the other 4 letter words were taken

      I managed to fix the problem by creating a new coordinate system for the CAD model, then selecting that new system when I saved the part as a STEP file. Then the cad=part worked beautifully! I even went so far as to hide the original csys before I made the STEP file, but I don't think that is necessary.

        Yeah, sometimes that's how you have to do it. For me it works better to align the part "offline" style then never use Cad=Part.
