2009 FRC Kit of Parts (Pro/ENGINEER format) - Supported by PTC

Hi all FRC teams,

As part of PTC sponsorship with FIRST, PTC has delivered a full kit of parts in Pro/ENGINEER Format. In addition, we have recreated all the models stored in the FIRST CAD Library and made them available in Pro/E Format.

To access the kit, please click www.ptc.com/go/firstkop

Users are also able to access the kit from within Pro/E. Click the Connections tab on the left hand navigator and then choose 3D ModelSpace link. From the 3D ModelSpace page, click the FIRST link to access the Kit.

As discussed in past emails, all teams can gain access to Pro/E for their team. To register for a team collaboration project and access the free software, please have your team lead register here – www.ptc.com/go/frcregistration

If you have any questions, please send me an email at mfischer@ptc.com.

Regards,
Mark Fischer
Director – PTC Education Program

Re: 2009 FRC Kit of Parts (Pro/ENGINEER format) - Supported by PTC

Excellent! I'm just about to pull them in. In my 3D connections tab, I have to hit the "catalog" link to get to 3DModelSpace.

I don't see any assembly files - do I need to put all the details together for the gearboxes?

Oops - I just tried to open the orbit ball and camera and ProE won't open them; says not a valid part file. I'm running Wildfire 3.0 - is that a problem?

Hi Gary.

The files are for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0.

If you have a registered team collabroation project, you can download the latest release of Pro/E Schools Edition. This will resolve the issue.

These are all individual part files......

Like with the kit, they are yours to assembly in any configuration.

Thanks,
mark

Mark,
do you think you could add a "download all" function to the library. So we can have all the files locally without having to download like 200 parts in individual zip files?

thanks,

Greg

Drat. I'm working at the office (we use ProE) between meetings so I'm stuck with the company's version. Hopefully we can call them up at the school this afternoon.

Can we get the files in IGES format? Then we can bring them into anything?

At this time, we are only providing them in Pro/E format.

Certainly the IGES files for the FIRST Cad Library are available via www.firstcadlibrary.com....

It is possible for you to get free copies of Pro/ENGINEER and open the native files directly. If you require them as IGES, you can peform a File > Save A Copy > choose IGES as file type.

Thanks,
Mark

Re: 2009 FRC Kit of Parts (Pro/ENGINEER format) - Supported by PTC

Hi all,

I have just completed the process of saving the files in Pro/ENGINEER commercial format. If you require these files in commercial format, please send an email to mfischer@ptc.com.

In addition, the Kit of Parts Site has been updated allowing you to download all files at once - www.ptc.com/go/firstkop

Lastly, I have included a new category folder in the kit of parts, which contains the arena, trailer and orbit ball.

Good luck,

Mark

The files created with the student version of pro-e are not compatible with the files with the commercial version and vice versa. I got around this with B&D because the let me install wildfire 4 student version on my work PC specifically for FIRST. The only issue I run into is when we try and send parts to the model shop, which uses pro I need to re-model all the manufactured parts in my commercial seat.

Overall working with pro-e this season has been a pleasant experience.
