In the past 6 months or so, I have been having a issue opening ProE .prt files. It gives me a error that it is not a valid part file. I have always been able to open ProE files into Solidworks in the past, but something has changed. Either in ProE or Solidworks. I am receiving .prt files from multiple customers with the same error when I try to open the files. Has anyone else seen this, or have a solution for this?
I met this issue a while back, and it seems to be a problem with proe/creo translation in 2015- and 2016. I got a notification that the translator will be fixed in 2017 beta 1, so I recommend that you join the beat testing for 2017 to check that your able to import your models again. Beta testing will begin sometime this week.
