Hello,

this is not possible.

See the last section of this document http://www.ptc.com/WCMS/files/129465/en/FAQ_-_Creo_ElementsDirect_Modeling_Express_4.0.pdf

Can Creo Elements/Direct Modeling and Creo Elements/Direct Modeling Express run

on the same machine?

Users running the current release of Creo Elements/Direct Modeling can also run Creo

Elements/Direct Modeling Express on the same machine. This is helpful for users desiring home or

personal use licensing. Note that the PK2 format is not transferable between Creo Elements/Direct

Modeling Express and the professional version.

cheers

Re: Modeling Express into Modeling?

Thanks Horst. But I find it strange that the data sheet for Creo Elements/Direct Modeling Express states

*Easy upgrade when you're ready to grow*

*Companies needing more 3D design power can upgrade to the full, professional version of Creo Elements/Direct Modeling when they outgrow the Express edition.*

How can there be an upgrade if the files from Express won't go into the full version?

This information was sent to the corresponding PTC Departement for clarification and corresponding actions to be taken.

Re: Modeling Express into Modeling?

This is dissappointing as I use Creo Elements/Direct Modeling at work and am helping my college bound son learn CAD using Creo Elements/Direct Modeling Express at home. I can not view his files at work. Creo Elements/Direct Modeling should at least import Creo Elements/Direct Modeling Express pk2 files as it is higher on the food chain. I can understand not going the other way.

Re: Modeling Express into Modeling?

There *is* a way to convert the Modeling Express data into Modeling Data.

However, PTC decided to discontinue this service.

You can try to convince PTC to re-establish this service.

Re: Modeling Express into Modeling?

Well, if it would be possible to just load the date from Express (free version) into Modeling,

then many customers would be adding (free) Express instead of buying more licenses of Modeling.

Therefore, the "migration of Express data into Modeling data" was limited to customers

who started with Express and then decided to buy Modeling - it was never intended that

customers already using Modeling would also work with Express.

Of course, this doesn't cover scenarios like "working with Express at home, want to use the

data at work".
