How to convert Pro/Engineer (ProE,Pro/E,.asm,.prt) to WinCaps III (DENSO Robotics)?

PolyTrans|CAD+DCC performs mathematically precise CAD, DCC/Animation, GIS and BIM 3D file conversions into all key downstream 3D packages and file formats. Okino software is used and trusted throughout the world by many tens of thousands of 3D professionals in mission & production critical environments, backed by respectable personal support directly from our core development team.



Creo is a family of Computer-aided design (CAD) apps supporting product design for discrete manufacturers and is developed by PTC. The suite consists of apps, each delivering a distinct set of capabilities for a user role within product development. They generally compete with SolidWorks, UG NX, CATIA, Solid Edge and Autodesk Inventor.

For over 3 decades Okino has been a primary conversion partner of PTC, especially for our core business focussing on the conversion of their native ProE/Creo (ASM and PRT) and ProductView (PVS, PVZ) files.

Their current product naming can be a bit confusing:

  • Creo Elements/Pro - previously Pro/Engineer
  • Creo Elements/Direct - previously CoCreate
  • Creo Elements/View - previously ProductView

Okino licenses the real and actual ProE/Creo runtime toolkits from PTC directly and hence can guarantee perfect file conversions. Suggested conversion methods include:

  • Via native 'Creo Elements Pro' (Pro/E) files, .asm and .prt.

  • Via PTC .neutral assembly and part files.

  • Via STEP and IGES files.

  • Via native ProductView PVS/PVZ files.


WinCaps III

WINCAPS III, by DENSO Robotics, is offline programming software which enables users to conveniently program a robot from a remote PC without operating the robot. DENSO is a leader and pioneer in manufacturing automation, including the design and manufacturing of industrial robot arms, since the 1960s.

Conversion from Okino software into WinCaps III is best done with the either VRML2 or DirectX file formats. If one has to be chosen over the other, VRML2 is a generally better file format than DirectX but both will convey the same data as required by WinCaps III.
