PTC Creo is a scalable suite of interoperable, right-sized design applications for users
across the enterprise to more easily participate in and contribute to the product design
process. With these applications, companies can bring better products to market faster by
improving processes such as concept design, detailed design, and verification and
validation.

Installation
PTC Creo 3.0 is packaged with a PTC License Server powered by FlexNet Publisher
11.11.1. However, PTC Creo 3.0 can also be used with a PTC License Server powered by
FlexNet Publisher 10.8 or later from Flexera Software. If you are already running a

license server for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 or later, PTC Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 or

PTC Creo 3.0 F000

later, PTC Mathcad 14.0, PTC Arbortext Isodraw 7.0, or PTC Arbortext Editor 6.0,
you need only update your license file to support PTC Creo 3.0. If you are a new user, or
if your license server has never supported any of these products, you must install the
new PTC License Server when using floating licenses.
Using PTC Installation Assistant
For a streamlined installation of PTC Creo 3.0 applications, you can use the PTC
Installation Assistant on your DVD-ROM. Open the installer, enter your Sales Order
Number, and the Assistant begins the automatic installation:

Acquires the license file from PTC

Determines whether the license is floating or fixed and installs the licenses server as
required

Provides a list of the available products based on the entitlement detailed in the
licenses file and automatically downloads and installs that software from PTC.com

For the most up-to-date installation information, see the PTC Creo 3.0 Installation and
Administration Guide on the Reference Documents page or click File > Help >
Reference in the application.
Licensing Alternatives for Existing Customers
Existing customers can alternatively use the online licensing tools to request an updated
license pack via e-mail for installation on an existing PTC License Server. To run PTC
Creo 3.0 your PTC license pack must have updated licenses at version 34.0. See the
licensing area at http://www.ptc.com/support/index.htm.
G-Post, VERICUT Products, and CGTech Licensing
In PTC Creo 3.0, along with its solutions for NC, PTC is also including support for
CGTechs VERICUT 7.1.5 and Austin N.C., Inc.s G-Post V6.6P14.

CGTech has removed PTC licensing from the advanced VERICUT products as of release
5.4: NC Verification, Optimization, and Machine Simulation. If you use any of these
products, you must move to CGTech licensing to use it with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0,
PTC Creo Elements/Pro 5.0, and with PTC Creo 2.0 or later.

Product-Specific Information
PTC Creo User Interface Customization
You can customize various aspects of the user interface for your PTC Creo application:

Ribbon

Quick Access Toolbar

Graphics toolbar

Window layout

Right mouse button

In all applications, customization settings for the user interface are automatically stored
in the profile directory of the users operating system:
%APPDATA%\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings\creo_<app>_customization.ui

PTC Creo 3.0 F000

When the PTC Creo application starts, customization settings are applied from the
following locations in this order:

Application load point directory:


<creo_loadpoint>\F000\Common Files
\text\creo_<app>_admin_customization.ui

Users profile directory

Application startup directory, if this configuration option is set:


load_ui_customization_run_dir = yes

To facilitate administration and sharing, customization settings for the user interface
can be imported, exported, or reset to the defaults.
Configuration for PTC Creo Applications
When your PTC Creo application starts, stored configuration options from config.pro
or config.sup or both are applied from the same locations and in the same order as in
PTC Creo 2.0. It is recommended to use separate configuration files and working
directories for each PTC Creo application.
PTC Creo Parametric TOOLKIT and PTC Creo Parametric Object TOOLKIT
You can extend the use of PTC Creo Parametric with PTC Creo Parametric TOOLKIT
and PTC Creo Object TOOLKIT C++. From PTC Creo 3.0, you can also extend the use of
PTC Creo Direct using the PTC Creo Object TOOLKIT C++. The development
environment for building applications with PTC Creo 3.0 is now Visual Studio 2012.
Please select the v110_xp toolset.
In addition, a new licensed API package, PTC Creo Object TOOLKIT Java is released
with PTC Creo 3.0. PTC Creo Object TOOLKIT Java provides the same functionality
capabilities as the PTC Creo Object TOOLKIT C++ with a Java binding. You can use this
new API package to customize both PTC Creo Parametric and PTC Creo Direct. The
development environment supported for building Jlink and PTC Creo Object TOOLKIT
Java applications is Java 7 Update 25.
PTC Creo 3.0 also has a new tool, the PTC Creo UI Editor, for interactively creating and
editing dialog boxes and for generating callbacks in C++ or Java. This streamlines the
process of creating dialog boxes for your PTC Creo Parametric TOOLKIT and for PTC
Creo Object TOOLKIT C++ and Java customizations.
PTC Creo Advanced Framework Extension
PTC Creo Advanced Framework Extension (AFX) 3.0 adopts the PTC Creo look and feel
in its new user interface. To install PTC Creo Advanced Framework Extension 3.0 Lite or
PTC Creo Advanced Framework Extension 3.0, complete the following steps:
1. Install PTC Creo Parametric 3.0.
2. Set the configuration option afx_enabled to YES.
3. Restart PTC Creo Parametric 3.0.

PTC Creo Design Exploration Extension


Changing a product design and exploring new ideas is a technical challenge, especially
when developing complex systems with many interdependent components. PTC Creo
Design Exploration Extension simplifies the process by enabling you to develop and
evaluate multiple design ideas simultaneously and explore changes to a design without
committing to the change. Design Exploration Extension also extends Update Control
capabilities. There is better monitoring of complex design changes through data-sharing
features, and better investigation of design changes before propagating the changes to
dependent models.
Updates for Assembly
Updates for Assembly include the enhancements described in the list below:

A new data-sharing feature that supports a tighter integration between PTC Creo
Layout and PTC Creo Parametric. This enables associative and concurrent design of
2D content and 3D models.

A new Notification Center in which events and changes to models are collected.
This results in the faster identification and handling of issues.

PTC Creo Intelligent Fastener Extension


PTC Creo Intelligent Fastener Extension is a new solution for all PTC Creo Parametric
customers. Use PTC Creo Intelligent Fastener Extension to automate the assembly of
fasteners from a comprehensive out-of-the-box library of screws, bolts, washers, nuts,
and dowel pins.
To turn PTC Creo Intelligent Fastener Extension off, set the configuration option
intelligent_fastener_enabled to no and restart PTC Creo Parametric.
PTC Creo Harness Manufacturing Extension
PTC Harness Manufacturing Extension is a new solution for all PTC Creo Parametric
Cabling customers. Use PTC Harness Manufacturing Extension to automate the creation
of harness manufacturing documentation.
Hardware Libraries
PTC continues to expand online catalogs of 3D models from its software partner
CADENAS GmbH.
The additional community portal provides engineers with instant access to millions of
certified native PTC Creo models from over 400 industrial supplier catalogs at no cost.
View the portal at http://ptc.partcommunity.com/.
PTC Creo Direct Enhancements
PTC Creo Direct enhancements include support for the import of additional non-native
CAD formats such as native SolidWorks, Inventor, and NX data. Additionally, there are
many part and assembly modeling enhancements.

PTC Creo 3.0 F000

PTC Creo Layout Enhancements


PTC Creo Layout enhancements include the concept of concurrent layout design. As a
result, multiple pieces of the 2D concept design can be developed in parallel and
continuously synchronized in a master 2D layout.
PTC Creo Simulate Enhancements
In PTC Creo Simulate, the user interface for reviewing analysis results is more modern
and follows the standard PTC Creo ribbon interface. Other improvements include
enabling contact interfaces with finite friction, leveraging multiload sets in Fatigue
Advisor, and diagnostic enhancements.
