Working in multi-CAD environment can be a real challenge for engineering and designers. Discrepancies between different CAD tools can mean hours spent cleaning up data and ensuring that legacy data is fully integrated.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO MAKE CAD CONSOLIDATION EASIER?
With PTC Creo, it is straightforward to consolidate CAD systems. Engineers are able to directly reuse existing 2D and 3D design data, add design intelligence, and keep data from multiple legacy systems synchronised during the consolidation stage.
