3D CAD Software: PTC Creo Parametric
Design Higher Quality and More Innovative Products in Less Time
PTC Creo Parametric 3D Design Software (Originally Pro/ENGINEER)
is the Standard in 3D CAD
PTC Creo Parametric is not only the most powerful parametric 3D CAD software on the market, but it was also the first (Pro/ENGINEER). PTC Creo Parametric provides the broadest range of powerful 3D CAD capabilities presented within a modern, streamlined, easy-to-use interface. This 3D CAD software has been developed to help you address your most pressing product design challenges including accommodating late stage changes and working with multi-CAD data.
“PTC Creo helps us get the job done. We just can’t do without it. To be able to evaluate the 3D form, have tools to craft that form in the most beautiful way, to perfect it, and to get the model out to the model maker and get the product back in time — that’s what it’s all about.”
- John Jacobsen, Head of Engineering at Quirky
What makes PTC Creo so great?
PTC Creo offers powerful, reliable, yet easy-to-use modeling tools that accelerate the design of parts and assemblies. By automating tasks, such as creating engineering drawings, you can avoid errors and save significant time in the product development process. The software also lets you perform analysis, create renderings and animations, and optimize productivity across a full range of other mechanical design tasks — for example, you can use it to check how well your design conforms to best practices. PTC Creo Parametric will help you design higher quality products faster and allow you to communicate more efficiently with manufacturing and your suppliers.

Advanced 3D CAD Functionality with PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX)
The Challenge of 3D Modeling
Engineering teams need to respond to many challenges when developing products, especially in today’s competitive environment. Design engineers must respond quickly to project or bid proposals, rapidly generate design concepts or make late-stage changes to the product based on customer or supplier input. To save time, you can leverage existing 3D CAD models and modify them. If you don’t know how the model was built or if the model lacks design intent, the process can be time-consuming and frustrating – one that will likely require you to rebuild the model from scratch.
Introducing PTC Creo FMX
PTC Creo FMX gives design engineers the ability to quickly and easily edit 3D CAD data using a direct modeling approach without sacrificing the original design intent. It also enables engineers to collaborate more effectively and easily work with 3rd party or legacy CAD data. Whether you are at the initial stages of conceptualizing a design, trying to simplify your product geometry for CAE analyses or handling that late-stage design change, PTC Creo FMX can save you time and accelerate your processes.
Why 3D CAD?
While most 2D CAD users have considered the move to 3D modeling, many are put off by the perception of a difficult and disruptive transition between the two modeling approaches. However, substantial and impactful technology advances directly affect how quickly and easily organizations can start using 3D CAD, and many companies are finding it to be easier than they expected.
