PTC Creo View Adapter for PTC Creo Parametric starting with 3.0 M030 supports the publishing of PTC Creo Unite parts and assemblies.

What is PTC Creo Unite?

PTC Creo® with Unite technology provides users with breakthrough capabilities to improve productivity in multi-CAD environments. By allowing users to consolidate CAD systems and collaborate more effectively across systems, design teams will experience new efficiencies allowing them to improve product quality, desirability, and on-time deliverability.
