What is CREOSON?!

Example: Driving CREO from a Web Page

(ahem, without WebLink)

What's Next?

After you have downloaded CREOSON and started the CREOSON Micro-Server, please open the CREOSON Documentation, check out the Playground, and then dig into the CREOSON Functions and Example Transactions.

Remember, you can use ANY programming/scripting language you want to manipulate CREO Parametric using CREOSON using JSON requests over HTTP.

The CREOSON documentation has some language-specific JSON transaction references that you may find useful.

If you are NOT a programmer, don't worry! Once you figure out the JSON request basics in your language of choice, you can do amazing things quickly with CREOSON.
