On Tuesday, November 15, PTC hosted its European Forum both in Stuttgart, Germany. The event marked the official launch of Creo 4.0, with presentations and demos from PTC's CAD product managers taking place throughout the day. That said, if you were on the other side of the world, you might not have been up at 3 am to hear some of the most exciting sessions.
But we have good news. Much of the forum has been recorded and is available now to anybody who registers for the event. If you’re a Creo user, or plan to be in the near future, you'll especially want to see these recordings (most can be found in session rooms 1 and 2):
In this 45-minute overview, Paul Sagar, Creo VP of Product Management, talked about the “groundbreaking capabilities available in Creo 4.0.” He covered new tools for model-based definition; additive manufacturing; and smart, connected design; as well as productivity improvements. If your time is limited and you want to learn as much as you can about the new release in the shortest amount of time, sign on for this big-picture introduction to Creo 4.0.

When you hear about “productivity improvements” in software, it’s tempting to think we’ve moved a tab here or added a menu pick there. But product managers at PTC are saying the changes to the UI with Creo 4.0 are some of the most exciting features in the release. Tune in to this session with Martin Neumüller, Director of Product Management, and find out how Creo 4.0 will improve your design productivity.
Whether you need to cut product costs, get better feedback from downstream contributors, or streamline the design review process, model-based definition (MBD) can help. New functionality in Creo 4.0 adds enhancements to 3D annotations, expanded capabilities with combination states, and improvements in creating derivative 3D formats and 2D artifacts. Product Manager Raphael Nascimento presented this session.
Creo 4.0 is streamlining the process of 3D printing your designs. This release will provide a single environment for anyone who wants to design, optimize, prepare, and validate designs for 3D printing. Plus, you should see what it can do with lattices! Join PTC Product Manager Jose Coronado and learn how the software automates the creation and optimization of product designs that only additive manufacturing can create.
Whether you design cell phones, cars, or industrial pumps, understanding how your products are used in the real world is invaluable. In this session, Product Manager Arnaud van de Veerdonk shows you exciting new enhancements in Creo 4.0 to help you design, build and optimize smart, connected products. Take advantage of the IoT to improve product quality and ensure that future products better meet the needs of your customers.
