History of ProductView

PTC's Creo View was originally developed as ProductView by Object Logic, a small company in San Diego. In September 1998, Division Group, another vendor of visualization tools based in Bristol UK, announced the planned acquisition of ObjectLogic. However, before this acquisition could be completed, PTC acquired Division Group in January 1999 for approximately $48 million in stock and cash. PTC then completed the acquisition of Object Logic in March, 1999. PTC then marketed products from both companies using the names ProductView and DIVISION.

In 2008, PTC changed its definition of ProductView to define the suite of products acquired from Object Logic and Division Group as well as products acquired in the purchase of OHIO Design Automation. OHIO Design Automation had software that pertained to ECAD.

On October 28, 2010, PTC announced that ProductView is now Creo Elements/View. The name change applies to release 9.1 and 10.0. In case you were wondering, "creo" is Latin for "create".

In 2011, PTC announced it was dropping the "Elements" and the "slash" and the product is now known as Creo View. At that time, they reset the version counter to 1.0 and then released Creo View 2.0 in July of 2012. Creo View 3.0 and 3.1 are in use now with Creo View 4.0 coming later in 2016.
