I customer sent me a drawing template I need to use to submit a drawing to them.  It is a ProE template which has a file extension of .frm.1  Any suggestions on how to open this file extension and use it using either Autodesk Inventor or AutoCad?  This would be greatly appreciated.

It has been a while, but I remember Pro-E and that file extension.  It alone is not compatible with Inventor.

If you look at the file types that are excepted this is not one of them.


What I would do is talk to the customer that supplied it and see if they save that template out as a .dxf file so you can import that and save that internally to Inventor as a template file.
