Creo (from Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0)


Described are export settings for the CAD system “PTC Creo” from version 1.0 as well as “Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0” and “Creo Elements/Pro”. With the recommended settings you ensure that the drawing file can be read by infra CONVERT in the best possible way.

Generally, it should be noted that fonts must be installed on the respective PC when processing drawing files in an exchange format, such as DXF, DWG or PDF.
SeeDealing with missing fonts

If an export result is not satisfactory despite the configuration recommendations, we will be happy to support you directly.
