Powerful, Easy-to-Use 2D CAD
PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting is a comprehensive 2D CAD system which meets the needs of both product designers and mechanical engineers.
Why start designing on paper? Go to PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting and use the intuitive user interface to get started. From the first minute you can easily work on concept designs while keeping a record of your ideas, what worked and what didn’t. You can also do detailed design work, save it, and then open it in a 3D package to create an equally detailed 3D model.
Maybe you want to reuse 2D designs or work with legacy designs created in many different CAD systems. Easily done. PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting gives you strong multi-CAD collaboration capabilities so working with designs you already have is a seamless process.
Perhaps you’re working with an assembly. PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting has powerful assembly management capabilities, simplifying the design and modification of assemblies by way of a clear parts, assembly, and sub-assembly structure – not layers. The Parts Browser helps you visualize, manage, and design, all within the browser.
Everyone has particular needs and requirements, so we’ve made PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting customizable. Fit it to your exact specifications. PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting optimizes your 2D design process so you can focus on optimizing your product.
We hope you’ll be drawn to it.
