Does anybody know how to add "Add Inn Fcs" for solide Geometry(NOT SURFACE) in Creo Parametric 1.0?

I am getting ambigous and unsatifactory answers from PTC technical Support.

Thanks.

Gautam,

 

Add Inn Fcs option was removed in Creo Parametric 1.0.

What?  Why????  That was a great feature!  Is there a replacement or other method?  Why did they de-feature Creo?

 

Hello Martin H & Frank S.

 

Product Development (R & D) of PTC thinks that, Add Inn Fcs  for solid Geometry is redundant.

In practical world, it helps lot. Now since it has been taken off, two or more features will have to be

created in order to get intended model shape. This will increase the time to make model and in turn

reduce the productivity.

PTC Technical Support Department asks me to request as product enhancement and put

as request. Can you believe that two departments do not communicate with each other?

The reason for not communicating with each other is given that it is against ISO standard

policy.

Yep, another reason to stay on WF4.  The arrogance displayed is unbelieveable.  Redundant, really?  WE, not the software and sales/marketing hacks, are the ones that should be dictating how the software is developed to make our life easier because we're the CUSTOMER!  GM forgot this crucial fact, and the Japanese wiped out their market share because of it.

 

More work for Fill feature... that stupidest thing.

 

Yeah, that is sore point too.  Fill?  They should call it a "Flat" feature instead.

 

I just checked the case in reference to sweep, which I opened a day before yesterday. PTC closed the

case without any solution. Also based on the Technical Support deparment recommendation, I have

requested product enhancement for sweep, let us see when it would be considered. Since year 2000,

I have put total 14 requests, I am not sure which one has been considered.

I hope some PR of PTC on Planet community will read, realize and then take this issue higher ups.

Gautam Vora.
