The newest release of the industry-leading direct modeling software, Creo Elements/Direct, is now available.
In Creo Elements/Direct 20.5, you’ll find usability enhancements, along with enhancements to some of the most popular productivity modules, like Simplification, Sheet Metal and Annotation. Here’s a sampling of some of the enhanced capabilities in Creo Elements/Direct 20.5.
The Simplification module was enhanced with these 5 capabilities:
Creo Elements/Direct now supports Unfold 2D and Create Flat support for multi-level features in the Sheet Metal module. Additionally, sheet metal features can now be created on top of previously-created features and they are reflected as expected in the unfolding processes, even if the details-reporting option is turned off.
The Annotation module now supports multi-language drawings. You can create and share multi-lingual drawings easily with global teams and consumers. And, you can use a centrally-managed translation table for translation consistency.
To ensure your drawings comply with the latest industry standards, the surface finish symbol standards list now contains an additional item for ISO 25178 – 2016. This standard configures the symbol to represent an areal surface finish symbol.
Additionally, increased robustness of the DXF/DWG translator now provides improved stability and success rates during import and export of DXF/DWG drawings.
You can now immediately see whether a configuration is active or not. When a configuration is active, the background changes color dynamically. Thus, you can avoid making inadvertent component position changes in the wrong context.
The background color is configurable—use a single color, a gradient, or set the color to “none” to turn the indication off.
