Transferring Files Using FTP
Creo Parametric object files are saved in a binary format. This format can be transferred to and used on other hardware platforms. The files are guaranteed to be compatible with new Creo Parametric software revisions.
If you use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to transfer files, make sure that you set your FTP environment to transfer binary file types, and not ASCII files. When performing a file transfer using FTP, be aware that the Creo Parametric file header may appear to be ASCII, but the file is actually in binary format.
