Creo 7.0: The Future of How You Design

Imagine, design, create, and innovate your products better with Creo, 3D CAD/CAM/CAE software, and solutions for product design and development.

What's new in Creo?

Now, more than ever, product design and manufacturing teams are expected to create products more efficiently and cost effectively, without sacrificing innovation or quality. Fortunately, Creo delivers the most scalable range of 3D CAD product development packages and tools in today’s market.

Creo 7.0 has breakthrough innovations in the areas of generative design, real-time simulation, multibody design, additive manufacturing, and others! Take your products from concept to digital prototype efficiently, precisely, and intuitively with Creo—on the cutting edge of CAD for more than 30 years.

With Creo 7.0, PTC amply demonstrates its skill at adding compelling new features to an already robust tool-set using smart partnerships to extend its capabilities even further. Read the PTC Creo 7.0 Review by Develop 3D.


New in Creo 7.0

Creo 7.o enables the latest in design

Creo 7.0 delivers on a commitment to continuous CAD improvement and features powerful new technologies designed for the ever-evolving world of product design.

Generative Design

Real-Time SImulation

Additive Manufacturing

Generative Design

Creo 7.0 introduces breakthrough capabilities in the area of Generative Design. The new Generative Topology Optimization Extension (GTO), powered by Frustrum technology, allows you to develop higher quality designs which perform better in the real world. Using Creo GTO, you can run topology optimization studies to optimize results based on your engineering requirements and manufacturing methods. such as weight and durability. This allows you to improve innovation by exploring various designs that meet your constraints and improve engineering productivity by avoiding costly redesigns.

Real-Time SImulation

Creo 7.0 introduces computational fluid dynamics to Creo Simulation Live with the new Creo Simulation Live Plus extension. The software gives users instantaneous CFD simulation capabilities and is integrated directly within the Creo environment. Designed specifically for engineers, the software’s ease of use means you no longer need to worry about having expert CFD knowledge to run simulations. As you make changes to your geometry, analysis results will update dynamically. Creo Simulation Live Plus is fast, intuitive, and powerful.

Creo 7.0 features significant productivity improvements to Creo Simulation Live. Workflow and UI enhancements improve usability of the product and thereby increases productivity. Improvements to the legend makes results easier to interpret. Additionally, you can now conduct transient thermal studies. These powerful capabilities give users more insight into the real-world performance of their products.

Additive Manufacturing

Creo 7.0 features improvements to the Creo Additive Manufacturing Extension. You can now add lattices based on the Delaunay algorithm. The software identifies and follows hard edges meaning the lattices are faster and cleaner. Additionally, custom cell improvements give users greater flexibility when creating lattice structures.

Creo 7.0 features significant enhancements in Computer-aided Manufacturing (CAM), including support for Swiss Type machines, the ability to set multiple “Go Home” positions for advanced machines, and UI improvements for the synchronization tool. These capabilities not only create better designs for the manufacturing process but greatly improve user productivity.

Creo capabilities

PTC’s developers created Creo Parametric as a sound foundation software that allows its users the ability to expand deeper functionality with each component. As your products become more complex in their engineering, Creo offers expanded capabilities to meet your requirements. Explore Creo’s capabilities that mold to your unique craft.
