Import from Direct Modelling/ Creo Elements Direct 18.1
« on: March 26, 2013, 08:22:11 am »
Hello!

i'm quite new here, and have found myself in quite a ditch. i am workin with the mentioned version of Creo Direct and the only way to go for importing atm is going Export Step -> import mesh ...

any way to maybe directly import from 18.1? since its already possible from Creo 2, i thought there might be a shortcut that doesnt involve the 4 hour import of a step modell?

mfg.

Unfortunately we don't have a direct import for Creo/direct. We are still waiting for the combination of these 2 file formats by PTC.

any other suggestion for a faster workflow?

cause right now i'm exporting 700-900mb STEP files and reimporting them is taking... well... a really long time :)

If you can export to OBJ then it will be significantly faster since the tessellation is already there.

what is dead? How much memory do you have?

Hello again, not had time for doing stuff with keyshot for a rather long time :)

to reply to your previous question, i'm running with 24gigs of ram atm, and the importing problem still persists....

guess i'll have to go bug for a faster machine or wait till we finally make the upgrade to the next version. oh well...
