PTC Academic Program Offers Free Downloads of PTC Creo Student Edition

Calling all science, engineering and design students! Summer is over and school is in (this is a well-known fact if you are, in fact, a student). But the good news? The PTC University Academic Program is offering free downloads of the PTC Creo Student Edition as well as a free “PTC Creo Primer Guide for Students” who want to get to know our software better and learn key 3D modeling skills.

In the the primer, you’ll get an introduction to modeling, visualization, and design tools in Creo Parametric, our flagship 3D CAD software. (Hint: The primer is a PDF document.)

The primer provides real-world examples of how you might use the software and walks you through how to use Creo Parametric to model two components for a construction kit – a cube and a strut. The guide then explains how to put those two items together to form an assembly and create a photo-realistic rendered image and engineering drawing.

The primer has detailed illustrations and screen caps to help students learn the ropes (and of course learn Creo). 

Other subjects covered in the PTC Creo Primer Guide for Students include the following:

  • PTC Creo Parametric interface
  • Working directories and saving work
  • Opening files and saving files
  • Starting an extrude
  • Creating a sketch
