Creo 6.0 Can't Open Part from Parametric to Simulate

Creo 6.0 Can't Open Part from Parametric to Simulate

Trying to update from Creo 5.0 to Creo 6.0. Testing the new software out and we tried opening a part that we have been able to use Simulate for with Creo 5.0, and once you press "Simulate" under the Applications tab, nothing else happens. The part remains in Creo Parametric and doesn't show the Simulation buttons. The text at the lower left of the window says "Part "part_name" not changed since last regen."

Re: Creo 6.0 Can't Open Part from Parametric to Simulate

Hi,

my suggestion ... perform a new clean Creo 6.0 installation (select Parametric, Simulate items) to eliminate the impact of update installation.

Re: Creo 6.0 Can't Open Part from Parametric to Simulate

We performed a clean download from PTC, which included the new 6.0.4.0 update (instead of 6.0.3.0). Install went smooth, updated JRE, and opened up Creo Simulate 6.0.4 and tried to open a part and... nothing. At the bottom left, it says "Welsome to Creo Simulate 6.0.4.0, but when I try to open a part, it sits there and the loading wheel spins for a few seconds and then doesn't do anything else. I can open the Creo Simulate application, however, it won't open a part. And then if I click on "Simulate Results", it says "Creo Simulate is not installed". How can I have the Creo Simulate program running, but not have it installed??

Hi,

try following procedure.

  • start Creo Parametric
  • open part
  • activate Applications tab
  • click Simulate button

This results in the same outcome. I can open Parametric and create parts and assemblies like normal. However, once I click on the Applications tab and click on Simulate, the mouse loading wheel spins, and then doesn't proceed. It just stays in either the Applications tab or it goes back to the Model tab, saying "Part 'part_name' has not changed since last regen".

Hi,

I installed Creo 6.0.4.0 (Parametric+Simulate, new clean installation). Switching to Simulate mode works well.

The only thing that comes to my mind ... your installation is incorrect/corrupted.
