PTC, please publish some kind of Validation data for Out Of Box functionality for Creo. We are not asking you to devolve any code or trade secrets here, just provide evidence that all the features work as expected.
Creo tools have become a thorn in our side and a hindrance to upgrade.
Here is our problem. We upgraded from Wildfire Pro-E to Creo 2.0 and were able to Validate the basic drawing functionality but the issue is the far more complicated feature of Tolerance Stack-Up and Mass Proprieties. These are OOB tools within Creo and we (as we do not have SW engineers) have no reasonable way of validating them. The result is that cannot use those features.
For Tolerance Stack-up:
We could do a simple calculation by hand (2, 4, 5 dimensional stack-ups - positive and negative) then compare to the result from Creo, then a more complicated calculation and from that conclude that any calculation Creo makes is correct.
For Mass Properties:
Perhaps compare the actual parts built?
As you can see, nothing that looks that solid. The best solution would be if we could just point to publish data from PTC and allow PTC to keep that up to date per release/upgrade.
If anyone else has some ideas on validation of Creo it would be incredibly helpful.
