In one minute or so: What happens to my other PTC products? (part 4)

[In our recent “One Minute or Less” series on this blog, PTC executives answered questions, via video, about Creo and what you could expect from it (here, here, and here). The questions keep coming. So, here’s another instalment —renamed “In One Minute or So” since executives need a little more time for the more detailed answers.]

In this group of videos, Mike Campbell, Divisional Vice President of Creo Product Development, answers questions related to what happens to existing PTC technology and extensions.

We’ve summarized his answers in just a few words (for you skimmers), but you’ll want to view the complete videos for details.

Q. Will Creo work with Windchill ProductPoint?


Q. What does the future hold for Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager?

“The Model Manager roadmap goes out for two more releases, at least.”

Q. Will the text table and variant functionality be available in Creo  or AnyBOM with Windchill?

“Yes. Creo won’t bring any regression in capabilities.”

Q. Will Creo include extensions like Reverse Engineering Extension?

“Yes. All existing technologies will be included in Creo.”

Q. Will Creo work with Windchill PDMLink?

    thanks for clarification! I’d like to see how those apps work together for example the new Mechanica app and the parametric or direct app.

    Hi Geoff,
    Are there any plans to support 3D Vision Pro or another 3D output technology in any of the Creo Elements products? This would really help users visualize their designs.

      Hi Josef, thanks for your question.

      The R&D team tells me that while they keep an eye on many new technologies, including 3D Vision Pro and other 3D output technologies, there is currently no development in this area planned for Creo 1.0.

      Hope this helps.
      Best Regards,
