Graphics Information

For 3D-hardware acceleration, an OpenGL graphics card must be used that has been tested in a PTC-certified configuration. To ensure the compatibility of a graphics driver with Pro/ENGINEER and Structural and Thermal Option Wildfire 2.0, a PTC-certified hardware configuration is recommended.

Dual Monitor Support

Limited dual monitor support is provided in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 on the Windows platform. PTC has successfully performed limited testing of some graphics card models from 3DLabs, ATI and NVIDIA that support dual monitor capabilities. If your graphics card is certified for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 and provides dual monitor support**, PTC expects that it will run in this mode without issue. PTC will provide limited support to resolve issues arising when running in dual monitor mode, however, the entire solution will not be submitted for formal certification as a complete configuration.

PTC has tested and officially supports the following graphics cards. This list is not meant to be a comprehensive listing of cards with dual monitor capabilities and it does not represent a shift from PTC's policy of certifying complete systems.
PTC's Support Policy.

Supported and tested graphics cards:
ATI FireGL XL1
3DLabs Wildcat VP 990 Pro
NVIDIA Quadro4 900XGL, 980XGL and FX 2000


Note: in the event that dual monitor mode fails, we advise use of Span mode as a workaround.

** Please consult with 3DLabs, ATI, NVIDIA, or the hardware platform partner to confirm the availability of this functionality with a given graphics card that has been certified with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0.

Plotters and Printers


Pro/ENGINEER supports HPGL, HPGL/2, PostScript, Calcomp, Gerber and Versatec standard plotting formats. In addition, Pro/ENGINEER supports the Microsoft Print Manager.
If you do not see your printer/plotter on the list below, please refer to the Introduction and Support Policy .

Emulation

Various manufacturers produce printers and plotters that may be compatible with or emulate a device that is supported by
PTC. Please be aware that such devices are not tested by PTC and therefore, may not produce correct plotted output. If you
are using a device which emulates a printer or plotter listed in the tables below,
PTC Technical Support will attempt to provide
support by using a similar certified device. Any support pertaining to compatibility with a supported plotter or the correctness
of an emulation can only be made by the manufacturers of the device in question, and not by
PTC.

The Microsoft Printer Manager creates an emulation of what appears on the screen and attempts to print this. Since this
emulation is between the Print Manager driver and the printer/plotter driver, quality and results may vary. You may choose to try a certified
PTC printer/plotter driver, which has been optimized for high quality printing.
