Many companies use Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) ''AS-IS'' for their Product Development Process (PDP). In reality, Product based / Process based tasks are needed frequently and this is time consuming and non-productive. This could be addressed by developing a Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) add-on customized application to enhance design productivity, reduce user intervention, and/or prevent design errors. Also, this significantly increases Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) efficiency and adoption, thus maximizing your Creo utilization.
CADOpt provides Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) add-on application development services (using Creo API's like Toolkit, JLink, WebLink, VB) for all your design, tooling, etc related engineering process specific needs. Below are few applications developed for many companies, who have been using these for many years and the same has been tested, proven and error free...
ADVInspectionReport is an add-on application developed for Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) that automatically collects, manages and documents characteristics from Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) for use in the Inspection process. It collects all type of dimensions (d#, ad#, add#, dd#) and its details from Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) drawing file irrespective of the way it is created (from 3D Model / 2D Drawing) and displays it in a MS Excel file and also creates a balloon in the Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) Drawing file.
Works with PTC Creo (Pro/ ENGINEER) Base (Foundation) Licenses
One-click solution that automatically determines and documents all Inspection characteristics from Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) drawings and models
Works in conjunction with PTC Windchill/PDMLink or Intralink
Recognizes all types of Dimensions (d#, ad#, add#, dd#)
Assigns a unique reference id (Index) number for each dimension and labels (balloon) them on the drawing as per requirement or company standard
Customized spreadsheet (Excel) output as per requirement or company standard along with required parameter / attribute information
Index Notes are in separate LAYER and hence easy to control their display
Speed - One click solution to propagate necessary details from Engineering to Quality departments
Error Free - Eliminates errors that can be otherwise caused by multiple interfaces including typos, read errors, comparison errors, etc.
Enhanced User Productivity - Eliminate Designer/Creo User's non-productive (manual entries) activities, saving up to 90% of Inspection report preparation time
Standardization - standardization of Process as per company standards
Simplify Inspection tasks - Inspection data no longer has to be manually transferred from Inspection drawings into Inspection reports or CMM offline programming systems
ROI - quick Return on Investment (ROI) considering the significant time savings and reduced ECN's
