Are any Creo Elements/Direct users out there familiar with PTC's long term plans for the software?
Today I learned that CSI is discontinuing its line of Model Manager add-on products. We have been using their AnyDocs add-on for years. This, plus the fact that PTC has been developing Creo for awhile now, has me concerned that Creo Elements/Direct will not be supported for much longer.
My biggest concern is not having to find a new CAD software, its the potential of losing our Model Manager database full of attributes, links, etc.
Does anyone have any experience with migrating a Manager Server to another database solution? If so, how successful was it? Also, what other CAD and database solutions are worth looking at?
Thanks in advance!
PTC does have an article on migration to Windchill PDMLink.
Creo Elements/Direct Modeling has been around for years. Military Contractors use it quite a bit. It would be foolish for PTC to get rid of it, so of course being PTC....
I have been using it since it was call SolidDesigner, just shortly after is was called ME30.
I think if the decided to unload it, they would sell it. Hopefully someone like CADM will step up.
