Creo DEX: The Tutorial

In Creo 3.0, we added a new extension for anybody who wants to generate, evaluate, save, and present design alternatives—without all the headaches of saving and retrieving separate files. The Creo Design Exploration Extension (DEX) is a tool that you launch from within a Creo Parametric session. From there, you can create “checkpoints” and branches populated with design alternatives.

It’s like creating parallel universes for your model. The alternative exists in the same file, but it doesn’t change or overwrite the source model.

If you’re a little bit curious about how that might work, we’ve got good news. We’ve struck a deal with our friends over at the Learning Exchange to post their video Exploring Part and Assembly Designs. View it below. No sign up necessary!

This 9-minute tutorial shows you exactly the steps you’ll need to create your own “parallel” design universes.
