There exists in vulnerabilitylethality analysis an ongoing need to convert target geometries from commercial systems used by vendors to the BRL-CAD representation used by the US Army Research Laboratorys analysis tools. To make that conversion process more rapid, a plugin was developed for PTCs ProENGINEER computer-aided design system in the early 2000s that simplified conversion of ProENGINEER geometry to BRL-CAD. In 2017, that original plugin is no longer compatible with the newer releases of PTCs tools. This report documents updates and improvements made to the original code base in order to support PTCs Creo Parametric 3.
