PCB design, computer and electronic device design

We are Design Automation Team.

2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?
Creo 9.0, and Creo 7.0

We want to help Creo users to faster and easier import and export files for ECAD-MCAD collaboration. e.g.: import native ECAD IPC-2581 files, IDF file and so on.  Currently, the process is a manual process because there is no API available and map keys do not work properly and reliable. 

4. What is the use case for your organization?
The design automation to auto import IPC-2581 files in Creo, and auto export IDF files from Creo. 

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
It will add significate values to our current design workflow. Make it more reliable, faster and easier for designers.
