Creo 2, Buggy as S---!

Creo 2, Buggy as S---!

Creo 2, Buggy as S---!

I sure hope PTC gets their brains back. Creo 2 is the buggiest v1-like beta crap I've seen in a long time. I am having to spend a solid day fixing what Wildfire had no issues with. Like suppressed features having nothing to do with some other features I'm working on, all of a sudden causing regen failures and broken references when resumed.

Other wonderful headaches:
1. Right-click Info > Reference Viewer bringing up the Creo webpage instead of the reference viewer, forcing me to have to exit out of Creo and start back up again. Just great when you have zillions of temporarily hidden features that you have to make hidden again.

2. Adding points to a variable round takes eons when a simple right-click > Add point would have been the LOGICAL thing to do. Moving variable points around on a curve is so dog slow, I can't for the life of me figure out what PTC was thinking. Wildfire was FAR faster at setting up variable rounds.

3. Random failures like no longer being able to move the insertion point up or down the tree, forcing yet another exit/launch of Creo.

4. Crappy mouse precision when rotating the scene. Very jumpy.

5. Far more numerous inexplicable crashes, wasting more time.

Should I be happy when Creo-3 comes out? GAWD I hope so!

Very disgruntled. >:( and sad :(

OK...I got that out of my system. Now back to another long fix-it session.

RE: Creo 2, Buggy as S---!

What build are you using of Creo2? Anything prior to M100 has been shown to be buggy and in some cases slow.

M100 released March 2014
M110 released May 2014
M120 scheduled for August 2014

You're post is encouraging after a long Creo M070 day.

RE: Creo 2, Buggy as S---!

I am going into production tomorrow with Creo2 M100. Working with Windchill 10.0M040 which we upgraded to in April.

Will be interested in trying >= M100 to see if it answers these and other issues.

Create a datum plane tangent to the point of your hole, then put the hole on that datum plane goining into the disk.
