3D Design Solutions

PTC Creo offers industry-leading solutions for 3D design. Built from the elements of Pro/ENGINEER, the first and the most innovative parametric 3D CAD modeling system and CoCreate, the world’s leading and most robust 3D direct modeling software, PTC Creo delivers the best of both 3D CAD paradigms with an unprecedented level of interoperability. Customers can choose the one that best fits their design process, or even use both direct and parametric 3D modeling as complementary tools which are highly optimized for a given task. PTC Creo gives customers maximum power and flexibility, all in one platform.

  • PTC Creo Interoperability between Apps
    The breakthrough Interoperability between Apps technology is only available in PTC Creo. This unprecedented level of interoperability between modeling paradigms will be demonstrated between two PTC Creo apps: PTC Creo Direct and PTC Creo Parametric.
  • PTC Creo Unlimited Design Flexibility
    PTC Creo, the most powerful 3D parametric CAD system is also the most flexible tool. Change designs at any design stage while maintaining full design intent using the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension.
  • PTC Creo Assembly Performance and Productivity
    By leveraging over 25 years of market leading technology, PTC Creo provides users with the fastest set of assembly design tools. With the new Lightweight Graphics Representation, the loading of large assemblies is lightning fast at up to 40 times the previous loading speed.
  • PTC Creo Associative Part Modeling
    This application is ideal for design engineers that need the power of a 3D parametric modeling system, but have previously struggled with older user interfaces. PTC Creo Parametric includes many core design enhancements that make it faster than ever to create 3D models.
  • PTC Creo Concept Design
    Quickly create freeform shapes and surfaces using the new FreeStyle design features in PTC Creo Parametric. Sub-divisional modeling capabilities help you create simple or complex shapes, yet still deliver high-quality engineering surfaces in breakthrough time. Speed concept design even more as you reuse FreeStyle data for 3D detailed design.
  • PTC Creo Direct Overview
    ​PTC Creo Direct provides capabilities required for direct interaction with geometry, whether from an existing design, or in creating a new design. This stand-alone app enables a non-expert CAD user to create or modify 3D CAD designs, in situations such as defining tooling fixtures or to capture design input from the field. Creo Direct can also be used to quickly edit 3D CAD data for downstream use in simulation or tooling design, whether the data was originally created in a PTC CAD product or not.
  • PTC Creo Parametric Overview
    PTC Creo Parametric delivers the most powerful and flexible, parametric modeling capabilities including those currently available in what people know as Pro/ENGINEER. Extensions to this core app deliver a broad range of seamlessly integrated 3D CAD/CAID/CAM/CAE capabilities.
  • PTC Creo Sheetmetal Design Productivity
    The sheetmetal functionality in PTC Creo has been greatly improved over previous releases. More than 20 sheetmetal tools have been enhanced with a new, more modern user experience and functional improvements.
  • Setting Up and Working in a MultiCAD Environment Customers with Active Maintenance
    Customers with Active Maintenance
    Today, most manufacturers are leveraging a variety of 3D CAD packages in their product development activities. Some companies have adopted CAD tools to support different design processes while others are required to use multiple tools due to acquisitions or customer requirements. Using multi-CAD product design, manufacturers have the power to define a single product despite the complexity of a heterogeneous design environment. This Tech Tip will show you how to work productively within a multi-CAD environment. Learn how to directly open and import a range of file types from other CAD systems to consolidate one master assembly. You will also learn how to use PTC Creo Parametric Flexible Modeling tools to add parametric design intent to the imported data.
  • Working with Large Assemblies and the Use of Lightweight Graphics Customers with Active Maintenance
    Customers with Active Maintenance
    Many designers experience software crashes and poor performance when loading and working with large assemblies. This forces users to work with partial views of a large assembly which often leads to poor design change decisions and incomplete validation checks, like interference for example. This Tech Tip will familiarize you with tools that enable quick loading, viewing and validation of large assemblies to achieve reduced cycle times and potential errors. Quickly locate and focus on relevant details of interest without waiting for entire models to load.
  • Interactive Surface Design Extension (ISDX) Customers with Active Maintenance
