PTC is excited to introduce Creo 10, the latest iteration of our award-winning, powerful, and easy-to-use CAD system.
As always, this year’s update is centered on customer-driven enhancements that will help you deliver your best designs in less time, with improvements to make every day more productive and every product more innovative. Creo 10 is our best Creo release yet, with new composites tools and enhancements to design for electrification, MBD, ergonomics design, simulation-driven design, and advanced manufacturing.
We’re also excited to introduce Creo+, a SaaS product with all the capabilities of Creo 10 plus innovative cloud-based tools for real-time collaboration and streamlined license management and deployment.
Read on to learn more about each of these exciting new improvements!
Creo 10 includes a host of multibody enhancements to organize, reorder, and understand design intent more easily. To increase productivity, there are improvements to part modeling tools such as Hole, Pattern, Sketcher, and Surfacing. And model tree interaction is even easier with many usability enhancements to easily organize, reorder, and understand design intent.
Usability and productivity improvements include:
With Creo 10, you can now design with composite materials to ensure a strong but lightweight product. These brand-new features allow you to:
We know that electrification is becoming a key initiative for many industries. That’s why Creo 10 has new and improved design tools to help you create, manage, collaborate on, and reuse harness and sub-harness assemblies. ECAD capabilities have also been extended.
Electric design feature updates include:
Human beings don’t come in one shape or size. With Creo 10, you can more easily account for the uniqueness of users, including the full range of movement and field of vision.
Manikins and libraries have been improved for better control and reach envelopes. The Visual Field feature now performs a reflective analysis, with resulting field cone.
For years, Creo has provided powerful model-based definition tools for greater clarity with less effort. Creo 10 builds on this foundation with powerful updates to annotations in the 3D model and enhanced usability, productivity, and compliance to standards.
More details include:
With the release of Creo 10, PTC continues its commitment to enhancing simulation-driven design and generative design. The brand-new Creo Ansys Simulation Advanced analyzes nonlinear contact and materials, with combined thermal and structural analysis.
Creo Simulation Live now includes contact simulation options and improved options for fluid and structural results. Creo Flow Analysis and Creo Simulation have been improved with better animation and multibody support, respectively.
Additionally, generative design has also been enhanced with new features including rotational symmetry, mass point constraints, and remote loads.
Creo 10 has improvements for both additive and traditional manufacturing, too. New beam-based and formula-driven lattices are now available in additive manufacturing. And for traditional manufacturing, High-Speed Milling now saves machining time, with support for barrel tools on specialized Floor and Wall Finishing NC sequences.
These exciting advancements include:
Are you ready to begin your SaaS journey? PTC is thrilled to introduce Creo+, a SaaS product that combines the power and proven functionality of Creo with cloud-based tools to enhance collaboration and simplify license management.
Creo+ includes collaboration tools to enable multiple team members to review, explore, and edit part designs in real-time. Creo+ also includes cloud-based desktop tools for license management, deployment, and telemetry services.
Creo+ is fully upwards compatible with on-premises versions of Creo. This means it is easy to collaborate with colleagues and suppliers. And since Creo+ is built on the on the same core technology as Creo, there is no data translation needed—everything just works.
This release makes Creo better than ever, with exciting improvements to the tools you use every day, plus new capabilities, all fully integrated into the easy-to-use Creo interface. Deliver your best designs in less time with Creo 10 and Creo+.
