Converting Geometry from Creo Parametric to BRL-CAD

Report No. ARL-SR-0376
Authors: Clifford W Yapp
Date/Pages: June 2017; 46 pages
Abstract: There exists in vulnerability/lethality analysis an ongoing need to convert target geometries from commercial systems used by vendors to the BRL-CAD representation used by the US Army Research Laboratory's analysis tools. To make that conversion process more rapid, a plugin was developed for PTC's Pro/ENGINEER computer-aided design system in the early 2000s that simplified conversion of Pro/ENGINEER geometry to BRL-CAD. In 2017, that original plugin is no longer compatible with the newer releases of PTC's tools. This report documents updates and improvements made to the original code base in order to support PTC's Creo Parametric 3.
