Failed imports, and parts all grouped at the 0,0,0 coord’s.
Good thing I have another option.
Very disappointing, as I work with STP and Pro/E all the time, and was hoping to not have to keep my other software up to date. Guess I will have to pay to play!
Hopefully the import become more robust and accurate? PLEASE!

You should probably submit a bug report to AD. Nothing will be done if you don’t send test files that reproduce the problems you see.
I would imagine that some of the Pro/E models will have NDA restrictions which I think is a big problem for AD. They don’t get as many real world test examples that they probably need. At the same time, Pro/E seems to be an extremely tolerance sensitive format and using Step would most likely be your best bet. Hopefully that helps.
can’t proE use SAT format? I think so, and that’s what I’m using. However, it’s bad in 2013 too, BUT it’s in 2012 and is pretty solid there. So I’m importing there, then coming over to 2013 when I’m done.
Each part shouldn’t be at zero, but I think zero in Max will be your first datum? That’s how I’ve noticed it working. Usually when a model comes in like that the error is the engineer not assigning their datum’s properly, not to say in this case it isn’t a bug. But if all datums don’t reference your original then each datum will be at zero. ProE will keep the information on each datum, but most things wont.
