Community Tip - When posting, your subject should be specific and summarize your question. Here are some additional tips on asking a great question. X

Allow multiple values in Creo Parametric parameters (Windchill allows it today).

Allow multiple values in Creo Parametric parameters (Windchill allows it today).

This is an enhancement request to allow multiple, discreet values to be set for a Creo Parametric parameter.  Today, one a single value can be assigned.


The ability to assign multiple values to a single attribute is already supported by Windchill.  We simply want to take advantage of this by setting them in the CAD model and driving them into Windchill.


Restricted value parameters is already available in Creo Parametric.  See

Not the same thing.  Even though Creo can present a list of values to choose from, only one value is selected and passed to Windchill.  @kfry is asking for multiple values to be applied and transferred to Windchill simultaneously, similar to how multi-value attributes already work in Windchill.

Hi @kfry 

Thank you for publishing your idea. However, we need more information as specified in the form you saw in the submission process. (questions below). The more details and context you give to document your idea, the better. Think about ways to educate and convince other Community members to support your idea and present your case to the product management team for consideration.

Please let us know within the next two weeks.

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
2. What product & version are you currently running?
3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
4. What is the use case for your organization?
5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?

Additionally, I invite you to check out this topic where 2 PTC executives explain product managers' approach to customer ideas and input for product roadmaps.


Other gaps:

  • Windchill attributes can have a suggested value list but Creo parameters only have a restricted value list.
  • It would also be nice if the Windchill restricted values list could drive the Creo restricted value list. Having to update the Creo restricted value list stored in the CAD model list is tedious as the restricted list changes.

It'd be nice if more of the functionality could be aligned in this area.
