Re: What are your top 3 pain points regarding CAD?

1) System administration

2) Using STEP files in assemblies

3) Finding STEP files for common components

1. creo throws directly from the program without specifying the cause of the error. Direct closure when creating assembly views in technical drawings.
2. It is necessary to memorize the order in which the commands are executed in Creo.
3. The command menus are not on the router. In the "skecth" environment, it does not place axes on features created with "circle".

1-integration between PDMlink and Creo: Some time it looks like develop by two different compagny, none consistency in Design workflow.

2-BIM is not at all adress by PTC.

3-Installation of evolution, no patch (if I have to re-install windows at each time they make a correction....)

I will agree with cgourru, the lack of support with BIM models is becoming an increasing headache for us.   Many times not able to bring in their native data, we have to try to convert to STEP or IGES with another tool, and sadly SolidWorks is becoming my friend for that...

1: The constant creation of new modeling packages (Foundation, Foundation Adv., Design 1, Design 2, etc.) and punishing 20+ year maintenance paying customer by not moving them to the newer basic or advanced package that they are paying PTC to develop. I have a myriad of basic and Advanced packages over the past 20 years and I was told they would upgrade them only if I switched to subscription. Why didn't these get switched up to the latest basic or advanced one the 8 times I upgraded releases.

2: Hole wizard content is a joke compared to Solidworks. So many missing standards that should be included with the functionality and not have to be configured by the users.

3: Materials library too is a joke compared to other CAD packages. Here are your 10 materials for your startup. My students are constantly criticizing the lack of options in Creo compared to Solidworks and Inventor. PTC needs to wake up and concentrate on the core functionality because the competition is gaining ground with ease of use and more core all-encompassing functionality. If users are not selecting your modeling package to design their product. They will not need your PLM, AR, and IOT no matter how good those may be compared to others.

Exactly! No more to add... This is basis of all pain in CAD Creo.

Why does assemblies automatically select to any snap possible other than the obvious "coincident" which would be 90% of the snaps. This should be the default snap.

Why do centrelines only occasionally align to planes, rather than every time? I find I have a 50% alignment success and have to align the rest as coincident manually (yet more lost productivity - how to be busy without actually being productive).

1. MBD annotation functionality, and being able to take that work and transfer that work to a 2d drawing seamlessly

2. Family tables

3. load times for opening larger drawings and models.

@zhop26 -

We have some tools that help with family table management, and have helped
many customers with model performance and large assembly management. Some
simple Shoot me an email at Phil.Clukies@cadactive.com, we would love to
talk about how you can make this easier and more manageable for you.

Thanks!
