Why should the analysis department have all the fun?
The Creo family of simulation software and capabilities lets you perform simulations on your products throughout the development process, helping reduce physical prototyping costs, design cycle times, and analysis department backlog. When you resolve basic design problems earlier, the analysis department can focus on higher-level issues when they get your prototype. The result is an optimized product developed at lower cost and taken to market earlier.
Make the most of the mechanism design tools included in Creo’s flagship application. You can create mechanical connections and simulate motion on kinetic assemblies while also running dynamic interference checks. When you’re ready, you can also run an analysis to see how your design will perform based on position, velocity, and acceleration.

We're big fans of simulation-driven design, which is why we've made PTC Creo Simulate so easy to use. By the time your product gets to analysis, you’ll have resolved most issues already using a comprehensive set of finite element analysis (FEA) capabilities for meshing, structural, and thermal analysis, post processing, and optimization. PTC Creo Simulate is available as a stand-alone product or as an extension to PTC Creo.
An extension to Creo Simulate, or Creo Parametric, this combination gives you even more powerful simulation capabilities. A step beyond linear analysis, Creo Advanced Simulation Extension expands your ability to understand when loading conditions extend beyond the elastic region and into plastic deformation.
