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.

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

Need Help with Some old ME10 CoCreate .mi files – PTC Community

Have you seen this: Had an encounter with legacy files in another program being unable to make the or I think to Pentium jump. Number of files times average file size. The company that saddled me with this problem had a multitude of issues that had finally come home to roost, the bulk of their designs in ME10 was the tip of the iceberg. This acts like an Autocad block. Even the free 2-D software can approximate what this program can do. The AutoCAD dwg files are compressed, put onto the customer’s requested media, and cataloged.

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 you found a solution. To make a long story shorter the program is currently not functional. This helps us detect any corrupted data files prior to translation.


We may need to purchase or rent special hardware or software to do this.

I feel your pain. For go very large jobs where we need more than 4 Gbytes of disk storage space we add a small surcharge.

This is now squarely beyond the limit my knowledge. New orders will only be accepted for the current versions and no support contracts will be accepted for new orders and no support contracts will be renewed. Conevrt we need to massage the data just to get it into our file system, we add a charge for the work.

ME-10 to DXF Mass Translation Service

Some of our clients would like conveert translated files on special media, such as optical disk. Multiply this by ‘s of files and you can see the man-months add up. For large jobs in excess of files, we translate files prior to running the entire batch, and send these to our customer for first article approval.

Others require significant time to put onto our hardware, often because the backup method did not preserve the file hierarchy. Results 1 to 14 of Some clients provide us clean back up tapes that load without problems. My strong advice for anybody still using ME derived software is to bail out as soon as possible.

That’s fine IF you have the program running, which we didn’t. I appreciate your reply even if it merely confirmed the difficulties others have had, thanks ATR. Getting the files onto our hardware. 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. 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 directory.


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. The number may be higher or lower depending on the items mentioned above.

We search each ME drawing file for external references and verify that those references exist. To RH68, your inbox was full; One of the problems we were having me01 that ME was down for some reason and all the files were locked up with it being down.

There’s been almost members that have viewed this thread, no solutions. A batch translator would be great but if a single ,e10 conversion is all that’s possible then the company needs to hear this too.

Denial has staying power and can hold a problem no matter how big it is. Now that everybody bailed out of the program except Vonvert. Then again, when PTC pulled support that’s probably what prompted ABB we’re owned by to issue the cease-all-activity directive.

Each customer drawing is loaded into the current version of ME, and exported as an MI file.
