This tutorial demonstrates the interoperability between Creo Parametric and PTC Mathcad using the Input/Output tagging in PTC Mathcad and the Relations table in Creo Parametric. When PTC Mathcad parameters are related to Creo parameters in the relations table, the only way to update the related Creo Parametric geometry is to open the Engineering Notebook Powered by PTC Mathcad worksheet and push newly calculated values back to Creo Parametric. You must manually push parameters back and forth in order to change the related Creo Parametric geometry. Relations that do not contain PTC Mathcad parameters update automatically on regeneration.
