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 third-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.
