Creo Elemnts Direct Modeling 20.3.1 doesn't import Inventor 2020 and 2021 native (IPT and IAM) files.
Customers need this data exchange, Creo 7.0 can import, so it is possible.
CED and Creo are of the same family but that does not mean that because one sibling can do something then the other can too.
Refer to knowledge base and see what Inventor versions are supported by CED.
Yes, Many of the import/export data formats supported by CED are older. But, maybe an option is to use the granite interface (that is kept up to date). You can convert the file to the granite format then use Creo to convert it to your final requirement. Not a great solution, but perhaps it will do that job.
Hello, thanks for suggestion, I already did it.
My problem is to explain to customers thay will have to rent a Creo 7.0 license only to convert Inventor files, these customers are paying PTC for CED update.
