We have also developed special software to read older backup tapes from Pascal workstations including hard disk images. We search each ME drawing file for external references conver verify that those references exist.

New orders will only be accepted for the current versions and no support contracts will be accepted for new orders and no support contracts conveet be renewed. To make a long story shorter the program is currently not functional. Translation Issues A designer with several thousand ME drawing files to convert is faced with several hurdles: If you are considering doing the translation yourself, you should also consider these points to estimate your own costs.


I hate it when short sighted bean counters make decisions that bite someone else in connvert arse. Getting a complete converh accurate translation – Since ME has some unique features that may not exist on the target CAD system, the translator needs to be fairly sophisticated to rebuild some data items in a useful way.
