Product development is increasingly collaborative and distributed and whether it’s acquired companies or working with clients or suppliers, dealing with different CAD systems and formats is now common place. The challenge? 6 in 10 CAD users find modifying models from other 3D CAD systems difficult (as reported in a 2011 PTC survey of over 7,000 manufacturers).
And while you may already know that the Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX) for Creo Parametric is ideal for late stage design changes to both Creo and Pro/ENGINEER models, you should also know FMX is ideal for those who need to modify imported models from others, including clients, suppliers, partners, and teams in your company using other CAD tools.
