Creo Sketch: Free Sketching Software for Concept Design




Line Art RazorThe napkin sketch. We hear about it a lot when we talk about design innovation. Despite sophisticated design tools, many great ideas still start as scratchings on a diner or barroom napkin–the nearest tool available when inspiration came.

But napkins have their drawbacks. They tear, they fade, they don’t really help you draw curves.

Those drawbacks are especially obvious when you see what Creo Sketch can do: It’s made for the moments when you’re more of a visionary than a technician. It costs less than most napkins, it’s FREE to download and use, includes freehand drawing tools, and doesn’t require any special CAD expertise to use.


In this quick demo, Paul Sagar shows how to

  • Sketch a freehand object in pencil.
  • Overlay rough curves with smooth, adjustable curves.
  • Use curves for masks, as he airbrushes color onto his object.
  • Add highlights and strategic erasing.

One more better-than-napkin characteristic of Creo Sketch: You can load the sketch or artwork into your other Creo apps when your idea graduates to the next level. Use it for starting 2D drawings and 3D models.
