I am having some prototypes CAC machined and the department is asking for .prt files!? TC does not provide .prt file formats and I wonder if anyone can recommend a free download of good prt software. Any advice gratefully accepted.

The PTC file format is created by PTC Pro/Engineer.  I have never heard of a machine shop being so specific on the type of file format to provide when it's not DWG or STP.

Personally, I would suggest looking for a different manufacturer if they cannot handle DWG or STP.
