C :Pro/PROJECT CAD Manager is a library tool that allows a customer to view, create, update, and manage a library of CAD models. The tool provides the ability to store, manage, and query model based information, such as build specifications, revisions, version histories, and a number of other attributes. A library can be composed from a number of CAD and CAM-based sources (for example, DWG, DXF, PDF, POST, and so on), and these may contain thousands of models. The user can access and query these models using Pro/PROJECT CAD Manager.

PTC Creo Modeler is a stand alone application. PTC tells me that they do not yet know what level of support they will provide for running the software standalone. This indicates that they have no plans to implement PTC Creo on Morden site PTC Creo 3D is the latest version that was released. This version of Creo has exciting enhancements that will greatly reduce the learning curve for students and workers new to 3D design. There will be a continuation of the release cycle for PTC Creo such as a new version every year. Support for Windows XP is ending. The PTC team says that a major new version, so large it is being called a new release, is slated for fall of 2012 and will be their biggest release yet.
