Why Should I Download Creo 5.0?

With Creo build better products faster. That’s because the software helps reuse the best designs and replace assumptions with facts. Use the software to transform designs into smart, connected products, and bridge the physical and digital worlds with augmented reality (AR).

Creo 5.0 also introduces exciting capabilities in the areas of topology optimization, additive and subtractive manufacturing, computational fluid dynamics, and CAM.

Topology optimization

The new Creo Topology Optimization Extension automatically creates optimized designs based objectives and constraints you set, unfettered by existing designs and thought processes. You save time and accelerate innovation by with the most optimized and efficient parts.

Additive and subtractive manufacturing

Creo enables you to design, optimize, print check, and additively manufacture parts without the need for multiple pieces of software. Because the software streamlines the process and reduces the need to recreate models, you spend more time focused on what really matters, the design.

Creo 5.0 introduces the Creo Additive Manufacturing Plus Extension for Materialise, which extends these capabilities to metal parts. That means you can print production-grade parts directly from Creo. Plus, the extension allows users to connect to the Materialise online library of print drivers and profiles.

The new Creo Mold Machining Extension provides dedicated high-speed machining capabilities optimized for molds, dies, electrodes, and prototype machining. Creo 5.0 supports 3-axis and 3+2 positioning machining.

Creo Flow Analysis

The Creo Flow Analysis Extension is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution, which allows designers, engineers, and analysts to simulate fluid flow issues directly within Creo.

With the seamless workflow between CAD and CFD, you can integrate analysis early and often to understand product function and performance. The software is purpose-built specifically for the design engineer and is easy-to-use, directly integrated within Creo, highly accurate, and provides fast results. 

Productivity improvements

Creo 5.0 also includes key productivity improvements for the fast-changing world of product design, such as an improved user interface, geometry creation with sketch regions, and volume helical sweeps.
