Creo Elements/Direct Interface for I-deas

Work free of interoperability limitations

Creo Elements/Direct (formerly CoCreate) allows you to immediately realize the proven performance of PTC’s industry-leading design solutions today while putting you on the path to achieve break-through productivity gains with Creo.

Creo Elements/Direct Interface for I-deas increases the quality of translated design data through industry-leading, multi-CAD data exchange technology. Converted from Creo Elements/Direct Modeling or Creo Elements/Direct 3D Access, the quality you get from the translated I-deas format goes well beyond what is possible with neutral 3D CAD data formats (like STEP and IGES). This interface supports a bi-directional data exchange process for companies who deal with multi-CAD design teams – internally and externally.

Features & Benefits


  • Use a file menu plug-in to import and export 3D design data from I-deas
  • Reuse I-deas design data instantly, without any extra work, as if it was native Creo Elements/Direct Modeling data
  • Share high-quality 3D design data with any team member
  • Support bi-directional exchange of both parts and assemblies
  • Support 3D geometry, topology, color, part names, and the transfer of attributes
  • Ensure design integrity when dealing with different geometry accuracies and tolerances
