Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

Designing Great Products

The efficient design and optimization of successful products is a constant challenge. Incompatible CAD tools, an inability to reuse product design data downstream and with extended teams, and difficulty collaborating between engineers aggravates these challenges. To stay competitive in today’s market, organizations need new ways to address these challenges.

Enabling Effective Product Design with CAD

PTC’s CAD software and solutions enable companies to optimize their products through the creation of digital prototypes. This includes the initial product concepts and styling, 2D and 3D design, simulation and analysis, and engineering calculations. For many years, the CAD market was labeled as stagnant, lacking signs of new innovation. Yet increasing complexity of product designs and competition has caused organizations to want more from their CAD solutions.

Manufacturers are searching to find new ways to reduce development costs, identify and eliminate errors earlier in the design cycle, increase design collaboration across disciplines and with extended team members, and optimize product designs for cost and customer requirements. Over the past 25 years, PTC has worked with thousands of manufacturers around the world to help them unlock the potential of their product designs.
