Simple Automation Tools for PTC Creo to Boost Any Company’s Design Efficiency
"We don’t have the time or money to invest into automating our CAD designs." "Our products are too unique for automation." Sound familiar? There are many perceived barriers to automating PTC Creo, especially if complete and custom automation is expected. However, in this session, attendees will learn about simple yet powerful automated and semi-automated utilities for PTC Creo that are inexpensive and quick to implement. Most companies are burdened with similar repetitive tasks when using PTC Creo such as exporting BOMs to Excel or drawings to PDF, last-minute changes that affect numerous components within a design, compiling documents for proposals or submittals, cleaning up old data, administrative updates such as adding or deleting parameters, changing parameters value, editing relations, etc.
By using Sigmaxim’s SmartAssembly automation capabilities, the presenter will discuss tools created that increase PTC Creo’s efficiency, usability, and administration capabilities regardless of the types of products being designed by addressing those repetitive tasks just mentioned. Training end-users and administrators is short and straight-forward because each tool was designed to match the process. Interactive graphical user interface (GUI)-driven programs, simple input-driven programs, and fully automated tools increase PTC Creo's usability which the puts the focus back on designing quality products. Additionally, implementation of these utilities does not require intensive or manual updates to existing designs, so quick implementation is achievable for most companies who face these common repetitive tasks.
