i have a feeling..they don't want to compete with the rivals...i mean they could have released it with M030,M040...etc..but directly next release its painful.
Hasn't PTC said that no major functionality changes will be released with M-versions.
This could be enough of a change that it would have made build interoperability not work due to data structure changes needed within the Creo part file. If it is, then their experimenting should have seen this issue before they announced a Creo4 M020 anticipated release.
Refer to https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS251133, 3D sweep will added into Creo 5.0, plan for Creo 4.0 is removed
...which means Creo 2020. ...or whatever it will be called by then.
They will have to patch this functionality just like SW did. Should have better results, though.
well that is a far cry from Creo 4.........sad
not even basic end mills, flats, bull and ball and tapered? I can understand for form tools.
this functionality has been needed for a long time.
At least there is now hope they are actually going to get there. I don't often need 3d solid body sweeps, but when I do, it sure is a heck of a task to make something that is reasonable, especially if the expectation is to use the model for manufacturing.
