Here is my request if someone can or is willing to do this, I have done some research and read that these files can be converted to DXF, DWG. We have got a problem converting files from our HP ME10 CAD system into DXF format to be read into Autocad R Our ME10 has crashed and burned, so is. Creo Elements/Direct Drafting now owned by PTC, and formerly called ME10 is a CAD software application exclusively for 2D drawings, especially in.

Denial has staying power and can hold a problem no matter how big it is. Even when you CAN convert from. I’m attempting to pursue a solution because a problem that doesn’t directly affect corporate seems to have less of a priority, it’s been 4 weeks already.

Many companies have thousands of files in ME drawing format. Login to Your Account. This is what I use to extract dxf files from the Me10 drawings they send. Each customer drawing is loaded into the current version of ME, and exported as an MI file.

This acts like an Autocad block. Then again, when PTC pulled support that’s probably what prompted ABB we’re owned by to issue the cease-all-activity directive.

ME-10 to DXF Mass Translation Service

At least I’ve got a front row seat for cknvert follies that shall certainly follow. Translation Issues A designer with several thousand ME drawing files to convert is faced with several hurdles: Even the free 2-D software can approximate what this program can do. If not, our scanning software reports this so we can obtain these files prior to starting any type of translation. Effective July 1, Artwork has stopped development on all ME related translators and convfrt.

It’s really a bit odd that I can create a file in Creo, save as a dxf, use the converter separate program within Creo to “save as” a. Others require significant time to put onto our hardware, often because the backup method did not preserve the file hierarchy.

So before I just step back and let the ball fall I wanted to ask if any of you have had to wrestle with the legacy of a large data base in an unsupported program and whether conver found a solution. Artwork’s Mass Translation Tools and Equipment Artwork has developed special tools and techniques to efficiently deal with large numbers of files.


Likely they’ll not weigh anything at all. Of particular importance are text fonts; the fonts used by ME do not match any standard AutoCAD fonts, resulting in missing dimensions, and text that does not fit into the boxes intended for it. That’s fine IF you have the program running, which we didn’t. There’s been almost members that have viewed this thread, no solutions. The information on those files is still needed on an almost daily basis for viewing and to too stamping die components on the WEDM.

Backing up on UNIX is straightforward – however on older pascal based machines, this can be very difficult. Sounds like I’m venting now so maybe I should stop here after thanking you for your attempts to help Len.

As I recall matters those files were originally created with a based machine and the more modern processor didn’t want to know. That was nice of you to offer some help but I’d been gone from the company for many months when you posted and did not see your reply.

Results 1 to 14 of Viewing is not the problem, I can get Creo Elements to open the files but not save m1e0 a useful format. The largest number of files we have done in a single batch is over 10, This helps us detect any corrupted data files prior to translation. My strong advice for anybody still using ME derived software is to bail out as soon as possible.

There used to be file converters and even whole companies that were doing batch conversions about years ago when everybody saw the handwriting on the wall and bailed out of ME, converting their files as they went tp modern CAD software.

We can give you a firm quote after evaluating a portion of your files. Probably should have asked more questions before I hired in here 4 months ago. Occasionally we need to build custom converf to match those used in the ME dwgs.


Had an encounter with legacy files in another program being unable to make the or I think to Pentium jump. They still send me files in me10 format. Somehow, somebody will simply have to enact a solution that convertt cost anything upfront that generates a PO. New orders will only be accepted for the current converf and no support conevrt will be accepted for new orders and no support contracts will be renewed.

Number of files times average file size. We’ve already been in touch with PTC and they haven’t offered much help other than suggest a configuration edit in Creo that doesn’t work.

Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. Custom Filters and Tools We’ve developed special programs to scan the customer’s database, prior to translation and search for illegal files names – the software renames the files and produces a table that shows the old vs. In one respect I would like to have tried the solution you posted just to see what could be done with the thousands of files the company relied upon. Never did get a straight answer as to what went wrong.

This is now squarely beyond the limit my knowledge. If convertt hardware is old, loading each drawing and saving it as an MI file could take several minutes per drawing. Have you seen this: Artwork Conversion Software, Inc. ME 10 File Conversion Could really use some advice from the collective.

However, your reply may be of some help to someone else that’s in a similar predicament with ME If you are considering doing the translation yourself, you should also consider these points to estimate your own costs.
