GRANTA MI:Materials Gateways for Pro/ENGINEER and Creo
GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway™ for Pro/ENGINEER or Creo enables users of the Pro/ENGINEER or Creo software from Parametric Technology Corporation (PTC) to directly access and use validated materials property data from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar CAD environment.
MI:Materials Gateway provides tools to access and browse the corporate materials database (and Granta-supplied reference data on materials properties), to choose applicable materials, and to assign those materials to parts within the Pro/ENGINEER model. The latest version of MI:Materials Gateway supports Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4 and Wildfire 5 (the latter also known as Creo Elements/Pro), and Creo 2.0.
Designers can ensure that parts have the correct density for mass property calculations, can assign designations and other notes to get stored in the CAD model and automatically printed on drawings, and can generate reports summarizing their materials assignments. Analysts can select and assign fully-traceable CAE materials models for use in simulation. All of these tasks can be performed quickly, interactively, and with no risk of error due to data transfer.
If you are a Pro/ENGINEER or Creo user
If your organization has enabled GRANTA MI access from your Pro/ENGINEER or Creo implementation, then you can access MI:Materials Gateway via the option in the toolbar.
If your organization has not yet enabled GRANTA MI access, contact us for more information.
