PLM4U Solution Assembly Creator


The application enables you to assemble Creo models, components and assembly, automatically following a series of rules defined by the user.

The application allows to generate automatically Creo models with assembly or replacement of components.
The definition and modification of the models is sent to the application through a neutral file that can be compiled using simple rules.
These rules may cover different aspects: parameters, dimensions, component placement, file name and more.
The application is based on Creo Parametric and may use the Windchill PDMLink capabilities.

The main features of Assembly Creator are:
  • ASSEMBLY
    The application performs the assembly of any component (also instance of Family Table) using coordinate systems (CSYS). It's possible using coordinate systems (CSYS) located both in the master assembly and his skeleton.
  • CSYS CREATION
    The application can create user-specified coordinate systems (CSYS) before performing the assembly operations.
  • DUPLICATE FILES
    The application allows the SaveAs feature on components already in the assembly before the application of the new mounts.
  • SUPPRESSION COMPONENTS / FEATURES
    The application allows to suppress or resume models or features present in the assembly during the mount.
  • COMPONENT REPLACEMENT
    The application allows to replace objects with other instances of family table, other components of the same assembly or replace with unrelated objects (with the same coordinate system (CSYS)).
  • RIGENERATION OF MODELS
    The application allows simple or accurate regenerations of both the models present before the automatic assembly and after executing the operations on the new models.
  • CHANGE PARAMETERS AND DIMENSIONS
    The application allows you to change parameters and dimensions into the assembly or its components.
  • INTEGRATION WINDCHILL PDMLINK
    The application, according to customer needs, can be completely or partially integrated with Windchill PDMLink when present, adapting to the existing workflow within the company. The asynchronous version allows multiuser access to the server.

The application has two use modes:
  • INTERACTIVE
    The application is used by the designer inside Creo Parametric through a mask with mounting choices. In this mode you can define the installation rules between components.
  • BATCH / SERVER
    The application is waiting for the designer's input (neutral file server). The application will operate in no graphic mode to reach the results.


PLM4U Solution Simprep Creator


This application grants the possibility to configure simplified representation before load the assemblies into memory.

It takesa base simplified representation as parameter with exclude representation for every first level children, the it permits the selection of different simplified representation (standard or user defined) before loading the object in session.

The feature Simprep Configurator is:
  • VERSATILE
    It allows you to specify the standard representation for newly loaded elements.

PLM4U Solution BOM Export


The application allows users to generate the BOM of a main assembly. The application may be configured to meet different customer needs.


The application can be launched on an assembly and then generate the BOM in a neutral file(.csv) that can be saved at any point in the file system.
The parts lists are generated even with indications of series of attributes that can be configured or selected on the fly.
The BOM can be created in different ways accordingly to the configuration parameters.

The main features of BOM Export are:
  • VERSATILE
    Ability to one level generate distinct or multilevel (partial or complete)

  • DRAWINGS
    Presence of any related drawing


PLM4U Solution Mass Regen


The application allows users to perform massive regeneration of components present in the work directory or from a Windchill PDMLink connected to Creo.


The application is used to perform regeneration actions of an arbitrary number of components.
It can also include implicitly 2D models in the regeneration operations ( dependant on the 3D model).

The features Mass Regen are:
  • VERSATILE
    Ability to work both on file system and on Windchill PDMLink
  • RETRIEVE DRAWINGS
    Possibility to retrieve the related drawings if not present ( plm mode )
  • AUTOMATIC
    Able to trigger an automatic checkout / checkin of models to be regenerated
  • PRE AND POST REGENERATION
    Can also force operations of pre and post regeneration

PLM4U Solution Table Curve


This application allows users to create, starting from the drawing, a summary table containing data relating to a series of points and its associated curve.


The application is used within a drawing of Creo Parametric and allows to extrapolate the data related to points and curves that are the basis of a specific Sweep.

The feature Table Curve is:
  • FLEXIBILITY
    Using standard feature of Creo Parametric is possible to extrapolate the coordinates of points, the radius of curvature and the length of the curve. The data will be stored in a table inside the drawing.


PLM4U Solution Drawing Aggregator


The application allow users to create, form the drawing of the project, a sheet for each drawing of existing components by importing the drawing itself.


The application is used within a Creo Parametric drawing and starting from a defined the project structure allow to import the drawings related to the models in the project. The final result is a drawing that contains a sheet for each template belonging to the project.

The feature Drawing Aggregator is :
  • FLEXIBILITY
    By using the import you can aggregate multiple drawings done at different times. In this mode, the customer has in a single drawing all the design drawings of the project.
