Very often a customer asks us if a certain file-extension can be opened in CED Modeling. because we sell both programs I can test in Modeling and in Creo Parametric and the number of file extensions which can be imported is much larger in Creo Parametric then in Modeling.
some common examples: 3D DWG, VRML, stl, pvz, ...
It’s hard to tell a customer who still pays its annual maintenance fee, why the other program has this much more options, coming from the same family.
If you can open it in Creo Parametric, it can't be that hard to make it available in Modeling as well, I assume.
I think aligning these capability is a next step forward to make the Creo Elements Direct users migrate to the Creo platform.
