Creo 6 Drawing to Creo 5

Hi All,

 

We had a big project that we outsourced from a different company. They created drawings for us without telling us that they had Creo 6 all along while our company has Creo 5. 

I know the GCRI is limited to only parts and assemblies, is there anyway for us to use their Creo 6 drawings??

We get the "cannot be retrieved"  error when importing the drawings.

 

Thanks

Short answer if you want an associative drawing is No!

If you only want the drawings in Creo 5, export the drawing sheets as DXF or IGES and import them into Creo5.

 

If you are not planning on making changes to the files, hold them until you do upgrade to Creo 6 or higher.

Install 1 seat of Creo6 for doing any work on these files. If using a PDM system, Windchill, you may have additional issues  with version compatibility.
