    Hi,
    Does anyone knows how to connect Simtools to Creo Parametrics (3D modeler) the same way its done with SketchUp?

    No.

    What is required for Creo input and does it have the equivalent of sketchy physics?

    There seems to be a way to add motion to an assembly as seen on these videos:

    There is also an API that by what I understand works the same way Ruby API does with SketchUp.

    http://forkedbranch.eu/en/getting-started-j-link-api-creo-parametric/

    Still I don't know if following the same steps in Creo as in SketchUp, and making a code that copies the command inputs same as Ruby API on SketchUp will work
