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 Wildfire 4.0, a PTC-certified hardware configuration is recommended.

Dual Monitor Support

Limited dual monitor support is provided in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 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 4.0 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.

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

**Please consult with
AMD, 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 4.0.

Certified and Supported Graphics Cards

PTC provides Customer Support for all certified and/or supported graphics cards. Certified cards will be added to this table as our platform partners complete certifications in preparation for production shipment of Wildfire 4.0.

Ple
ase note that the table below represents graphics cards that are part of a fully-certified or supported configuration (e.g., machine, model, operating system, graphics card and driver). PTC does not certify or support graphic cards independently from the configurations in which they are certified or supported. Please consult the linked partner pages for specific configurations.

Plotters and Printers


Pro/ENGINEER supports HPGL, HPGL/2, PostScript, C
alcomp, 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, ple
ase 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 M
anager 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.
