3D CAD software helps you efficiently build 3D virtual prototypes of products. This improves product quality and reduces time-to-market by automating the product development process. In today's engineering world, a variety of 3D modeling software exists to create digital prototypes, but only PTC Creo 3D modeling software offers a unique blend of parametric and direct modeling with product design apps that are truly interoperable. This seamless integration of technology fosters greater productivity and innovation, helping to accommodate the diverse needs of product development professionals across varied disciplines, levels of expertise, and degrees of specialization.
A 3D parametric design approach is a powerful mechanical CAD (MCAD) modeling approach that uses parameters to define a design's features and relationships between features. Parametric modeling provides an accurate and complete design definition; making it easy for you to capture design intent and build models that change as the parameters of their features are changed.
Direct modeling software enables you to freely create and interact with 3D CAD geometry, quickly seeing the results of engineering decisions. An intuitive and flexible editing environment is well-suited for beginners: providing a solid introduction to 3D CAD modeling. Expert users rely on a direct modeling approach when speed and flexibility are required. Direct modeling improves concept design activities, third-party geometry interactions, and working with different file formats.
