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.

ME-10 to DXF Mass Translation Service

Backing up the entire drawing database – it is important to preserve the original directory names since some ME drawings refer to subassemblies located in another convret. Guys with the problem borrowed a off me and a off someone else and worked their way up via temporary installs, fortunately the legacy versions of the program disks had been kept, to get files which could be opened in a then modern machine. Other customers have special translation options they would like t to implement.

Had an encounter with legacy files in another program being unable to make the or I think to Pentium jump. At least I’ve got a front mf10 seat for the follies that shall certainly follow. Of particular importance are text em10 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.

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 to modern CAD software.

I hate it when short sighted bean counters make decisions that bite someone else in the arse. Getting the files onto our hardware. For some very large jobs where we need more than 4 Gbytes of mr10 storage space we add a small surcharge.


I do appreciate you attempting to help, thank you. The AutoCAD dwg files are compressed, put onto the customer’s requested media, and cataloged. This is what I use to extract dxf files from the Me10 drawings they send. Claims to do a translation in AutoCAD.

Number of files times average file size. The largest number of files we have done in a single batch is over 10, I’m sure I haven’t explored ALL possibilities but I looked quite a bit and my conclusion is that any solution is going to be tedious, expensive, or both.

Artwork’s Mass Translation Tools and Equipment Artwork has developed special tools and techniques to efficiently deal with large numbers of files. Have you seen this: Sounds like I’m venting now so maybe I should stop here after thanking you for your attempts to help Len. Some clients provide us clean back up tapes that load without problems.

Occasionally we need to build custom fonts to match those used in the ME dwgs.

We may need to purchase or rent special hardware or software to do this. We can give you a firm quote after evaluating a portion of your files.

That was nice of you to offer some help but I’d been gone from the company for many months when you coonvert and did not see your reply. Multiply this by ‘s of files and you can see the man-months add up.

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.

We have also developed special software to read older backup tapes from Pascal workstations including hard disk images. Others require significant time to put onto our hardware, often because the backup method did not preserve the file hierarchy. A batch translator would be great but if a single serving conversion is all that’s possible then the company needs to hear this too. I appreciate your reply even if it merely confirmed the difficulties others have had, thanks ATR. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.


This acts like an Autocad block. How We Bid Your Job If you are considering us for a large translation project anywhere from to 10, files you can use this checklist to determine how we bid the job. If not, our scanning software reports this so we can obtain these files prior to starting any type of translation.

We have been doing such translations since Translation Issues A designer with several thousand ME drawing files to convert is faced with several hurdles: The information on those files is still needed on an almost daily basis for viewing and to create stamping die components on the WEDM. Too search each ME drawing file for external references and verify that those references exist.

As I recall matters those files were originally created with a based machine and the more modern processor didn’t want to know. In one respect I would like convvert have tried the solution you posted just to see what could be done with the thousands of files the company relied upon.

There’s been almost members that have viewed this thread, no solutions. 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 convdrt in an unsupported program and whether you found a solution.
