Customization using jlink or java toolkit

Hello everyone! Just want to know whether we can automate 3d modeling by customizing the creo software using JLink? Or do we need Java toolkit? Can we use eclipse ide or similar to write codes for customizing using Java API or does the Creo Toolkit only supports visual studio?

Thanks

Regards

Hello!

Using J-Link you can create assembles, can get different data from models, but cant create features (sketch, extrude, revolve...). But can place UDF.

 

Object Java Toolkit a little bit more powerful. But not free.

 

To write apps, using JAVA, you can use any IDE for JAVA (Eclipse, Netbeans, Idea ....)

 

C/C++ Toolkit - only Visual Studio. But possible to use Express version.

You mentioned in your reply that JLink is suited for creating assemblies. You also mentioned about user defined features. Did you mean for the assemblies? Also I want to know how can one define UDFs in JLink and is procedure mentioned in JLink user guide?

Thanks in advance.

Assemble models into assembly is possible programmatically in JLink.

Create new features in model (part or assembly) by placing UDF
