UG File Viewer

UG File Viewer

UG File Viewer

Good Morning,

I have been “out of the loop” shall we say for a couple of years on the UG side of the house.  I was asked this morning if UG has a file viewer.  I haven’t heard of one, of course I have been dealing with Solid Edge and it’s file viewer for the last couple of years.

Does UG have a file viewer that we could ship with models?

No... Sorry.

Hi jdrawlinson,

You could try external viewers like spinfire etc..


RE: UG File Viewer

you could go file-plot-hpgl/2 and UG will make a filename.hpp . Then you can convert this to hpgl and view it with CtrlView or make pdf from hpgl. CtrlView also reads/views hpp files directly.
