Powerful, Easy-to-Use 2D CAD
Creo Elements/Direct Drafting is a comprehensive 2D CAD system which meets the needs of both product designers and mechanical engineers.
Why start designing on paper? Go to Creo Elements/Direct Drafting and use the intuitive user interface to get started. From the first minute you can easily work on concept designs while keeping a record of your ideas, what worked and what didn’t. You can also do detailed design work, save it, and then open it in a 3D package to create an equally detailed 3D model.
Maybe you want to reuse 2D designs or work with legacy designs created in many different CAD systems. Easily done. Creo Elements/Direct Drafting gives you strong multi-CAD collaboration capabilities so working with designs you already have is a seamless process.
Perhaps you’re working with an assembly. Creo Elements/Direct Drafting has powerful assembly management capabilities, simplifying the design and modification of assemblies by way of a clear parts, assembly, and sub-assembly structure – not layers. The Parts Browser helps you visualize, manage, and design, all within the browser.
Everyone has particular needs and requirements, so we’ve made Creo Elements/Direct Drafting customizable. Fit it to your exact specifications. Creo Elements/Direct Drafting optimizes your 2D design process so you can focus on optimizing your product.
We hope you’ll be drawn to it.
