Thread: Creo API

  1. #1

    Creo API

    I'm new to Creo, I came from CATIA. In CATIA I was used to create a lot of api using vb.

    I'm looking to create a lot of api to creo, but unfortenately there is not much info compared to CATIA, regarding api in vb in creo.

    My question is, where I can get started to Api in vb to Creo?

    I heard that PTC is investing a lot in pro toolkit, and maiby from Creo 6 onwards vb will be more limited. Is that true?

    Where I can find the available functions from creo api in vb?

    Hi,

    The preferred way to develop for Creo is using the C toolkit.
    The pdf documentation can be found in the installation folder.
    For PTC Creo 5.0.4.0 this is
    C:\PTC\Creo 5.0.4.0\Common Files\protoolkit
    If I recall correctly the VB API is very limited compared to the C toolkit. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
