Products - Custom Apps

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...

About BOM to Excel

BOM to Excel is an embedded tool inside Creo (Pro/ENGINEER)for converting BOM content into Microsoft Excel file. This converts the meta-data in assemblyinto an .xls file.Occasionally data is needed in Microsoft Excel from PTC Creo (Pro/ENGINEER), especially when it comes to BOM table contents. Data from any of these data sources can be sent directly to Excel with, without writing any external CSV files and without running any office applications.Often we require BOM generated from PTC Creo Parametric in .xls format to share it across different departments in a manufacturing industry or to upload in ERP/MRP systems.

Highlights

  • Works with PTC Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) Base (Foundation) Licenses
  • One-click solution that automatically determines and documentsBOM content from Creo (Pro/ENGINEER)assembly model
  • Works in conjunction with PTC Windchill/PDMLink or Intralink
  • Recognizes level of parts in multi-level assembly models
  • Assigns assembly level in the respective column in the excel file
  • Customized spreadsheet (Excel) output as per requirement or company standard along with required parameter / attributeinformation

Benefits

  • 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 ERP/PLM tasks –BOM no longer has to be manually transferred from CAD to XLS.
  • ROI–quick Return on Investment (ROI) considering the significant time savings and reduced ECN’s
