- Direct & Parametric capabililities June 21, 2011
Reviewed by 'Ron Keeley'
I certainly hope that they don't end up going back to one monolithic app in the future. I'd like to see a Direct Modeling focused app with some parametric capability (heck, CoCreate has had that for years, actually) and the other a parametric-focused app with some direct modeling capability. That way, users wanting/needing to start from either end of the direct-parametric paradigm can do so, plus get some of the other end-of-the-spectrum capability. I'd really like to see the Direct Modeling tool (Creo Direct) make the existing parametric capability in that tool be something that's also usable (i.e. user interface is fairly simple and understandable and elegant to use, but perhaps doesn't do everything that the high-end Pro version of parametrics does.) This has been a long-standing wish of mine (many years, actually), so I don't really expect it to happen...
