I am having problems importing pro-enigineer parts into gambit. I get the error message:

Unable to open file ".\partname_prt.stp" for reading. The native ProE part is partname.prt so why is it trying to open partname_prt.stp? I have tried playing around with file extensions to no avail. I am using the Gambit version which came with Fluent 5.5 and Proe 2000isquared

I am not so sure about your question.

but you can export the model as STEP, which has a extensions of .stp, then you can import it into the Gambit.

About the STEP, you can refer to the manual of Gambit. There are details

thanks for the reply Li, it appears that the automatic import of pro/e parts is not actually inporting native proe parts but using an automatic exporting of a step file from proe and importing into gambit. my problem was due to it creating the parts in a directory i couldnt get at. or at least this is what appears to happen.
