Manufacturers everywhere struggle with many of the same design challenges that lead to inefficiencies:
- Design changes come late in development.
- Supply chain partners send over incompatible design data.
- Concept designs can’t leverage existing models, even when the new ideas draw heavily on the old.
Many teams deal with these challenges by simply starting over with the model. This requires engineers to spend many hours recreating existing data from scratch. A flexible modeling approach can change that. It combines the best of parametric and direct design in one CAD tool. It preserves the design intelligence of existing models and applies intelligence to dumb models.
There are countless challenges why we need more flexibility in our design tools. Read what experts say about making unplanned changes, working around another person’s design intent, loss of design intent in imported models, and more.
PTC Creo combines the best of parametric and direct design approaches in one CAD tool. The PTC Creo solution overcomes the challenges of working around existing or no design intent, without losing important data. Learn more about the PTC tool for parametric and direct modeling.
