PTC Buys CoCreate

CoCreate’s “Important Customer Announcement” reads:

“PTC recognizes that there is a broad range of accepted modeling approaches in the industry. By adding CoCreate solutions to its product portfolio, PTC will become the first and only vendor in the market to offer a full complement of design solutions.”

First and only, eh? Not for long, I’d say.

Like I said earlier, “As the thrust towards non-parametric modeling gathers momentum, the big companies with strict parametric modeling systems will want to offer their customers a non-parametric solution as well. As always, when faced with a “make or buy” decision the easier and faster way out is to buy.

I wonder who is going to be next.
