ProStructures Object Enabler:
ProStructures Object Enabler is a program that is required to interpret custom objects in a CAD file. If the object enabler is missing, some information in the application might not display correctly.
AutoCAD users in their structural workflow without ProStructures can still open and view ProStructures files in AutoCAD by installing Object Enabler on their workstation.
