Let’s face it. Every advanced CAD systems, including Creo, requires a significant investment in licensing fees, training, and workflow. Which is why our customers have always been so frustrated that the realities of the workplace dictate the need to invest in a multi-CAD environment—even if they are committed to a primarily PTC workplace.
Customers, suppliers, and partners inevitably choose different CAD platforms and thus even the most dedicated PTC design shop has a extraneous license or two dedicated to importing files from Solidworks, AutoCAD, and/or CATIA.
