PTC Creo Elements/Direct Interface for SolidWorks

Work faster, free of interoperability limitations

PTC Creo Elements/Direct (formerly CoCreate) allows you to immediately realize the proven performance of PTC’s industry-leading design solutions today while putting you on the path to achieve break-through productivity gains with PTC Creo.

PTC Creo Elements/Direct Interface for SolidWorks is 3D CAD software that increases the quality of translated design data through industry-leading multi-CAD data exchange technology. When converting 3D CAD data from PTC Creo Elements/Direct Modeling or PTC Creo Elements/Direct 3D Access, the quality you get from the native SolidWorks Parasolid format goes well beyond what is possible with neutral 3D CAD data formats like STEP and IGES. This CAD software interface supports a bi-directional data exchange process, which is highly valuable for companies that work with multi-CAD design teams both internally and externally.

Features & Benefits

  • Load and save native SolidWorks 3D design data directly from PTC Creo Elements/Direct Modeling or PTC Creo Elements/Direct 3D Access without requiring SolidWorks 3D design software
  • Reuse SolidWorks CAD design data instantly, without any extra work, as if it were native PTC Creo Elements/Direct Modeling data
  • Share high-quality 3D design data with any team member
  • Support bi-directional exchange of both parts and assemblies
  • Support 3D geometry, topology, color, part names, and the transfer of attributes
  • Ensure design integrity when dealing with different geometry accuracies and tolerances
