The Powerful Simulation Capabilities You Didn’t Know You Had




Within PTC Creo Parametric, many capabilities for simulation are already at your fingertips. That’s right. With mechanism design tools, found within PTC’s flagship design software, you can create mechanical connections and simulate motion on kinetic assemblies.

Use PTC Creo Parametric to simulate the range of motion between components in your moving assemblies, create gear connections that simulate the gear ratios, create cam connections that enable PTC Creo Parametric parts to “push” other parts they come into contact with, and check for collisions between moving components.

If you have PTC Creo Parametric, you can already use these mechanism design capabilities to define and capture animations and run dynamic interference checks. You can also run an analysis to evaluate how your design will perform based on position, velocity, and acceleration. Results come back graphically. Make a change in your design? Run the analysis again and compare graphs until you find the perfect solution for your product.

If your model includes moving parts, fully understand and optimize your design with the mechanism design tools you already have in PTC Creo Parametric.

The PTC Creo Parametric introductory video includes mechanism design options available with the software (starting after the 3:30 mark):
