PTC Creo Simulation

Analyzing Design Performance

PTC Creo provides a broad range of CAE solutions that enable design engineers and CAE analysts to validate various aspects of their product, by directly leveraging the 3D CAD geometry in the simulation.

By conducting structural and thermal analysis on 3D digital prototypes prior to manufacture, you can gain critical insights into how designs will perform under real-world conditions. This equips you to evaluate alternatives, recommend design modifications, specify materials, control costs and speed time-to-market by enabling manufacturing engineers to start planning production details early in the product design and development cycle.  Ultimately, it also helps ensure that your company’s products will be functional, safe, and reliable without over-designing the product.


PTC Creo Simulate is a structural, thermal and vibration analysis app with a comprehensive set of capabilities that allow you to study how your 3D virtual prototypes will perform before you make the first physical part.
