I wnet PTCworld UK yesterday and they said for Pro/Engineer XE and above there will be a Pro/Engineer manikin lite free. The full module (cost not mentioned) with extra functionality would also be available.
It was mentioned that there would be pro/ cam lite (2.5 axis machining), proe cae/lite (mechanica), Pro/Engineer creepage lite (spark gap analysis for ecad. All would be free for Pro/Engineer xe customers but with basic functionality

There is a limited set of Manikin capabilities available in every Pro/E package (Foundation XE, Enterprise SE, etc.) as of Pro/E Wildfire 4.0 M060 (due out later this quarter.) This basic capability will allow you to insert a "hypothetical" manikin (meaning he doesn't really represent any population/percentile, but he looks as you would expect him to.) in to your assembly, and posture using a reduced number of manikin manipulation tools him to get a feel for how he would fit. You will have access to pre-defined postures to help position him, but with this "free" set of capabilities, you cannot save the manikin in the design - we'll give you a warning when you first insert him in the design. Also, there are no population profiles to choose from, no reach or vision analysis tools (all available with Pro/ENGINEER Manikin Extension), and certainly no of the advanced analysis tools that are in the Pro/ENGINEER Manikin Analysis Extension (which needs a seat of Pro/ENGINEER Manikin as a prerequisite).
This "free" version is a try-out. We believe that the Manikin technology is VERY compelling, and can help in a variety of design challenges. It's also "neat" to see a human figure interacting with your design, and we want each of our Pro/ENGINEER users to experience that.
Beyond that "free" version, there are the two additional packages I mentioned. I hope that clarifies things.
So, one more question. We have Enterprise SE seats, will any level of Manikin above the basic be included in that? Better yet for the rest of the group, in each of the 5 Pro|E packages, what level of Manikin, if any, is bundled? Is that shown on the web site somewhere?
We generally don't include brand new modules in existing bundles. That is the case with Manikin as well. You will all get the Basic level, in whatever Pro/E package you have, but neither of the new offerings (Pro/ENGINEER Manikin and Pro/ENGINEER Manikin Analysis.
