Creo Elements/Direct

Creo Elements/Direct is a comprehensive system for mechanical engineers and designers who create products using the ‘direct modeling’ approach to 3D CAD.

Industry-Leading Direct Modeling Software

Direct modeling allows you to quickly and easily create one-off designs or radically repurpose existing designs – even if you don’t know how they were made. In fact, most companies add 3D modeling to their product design process to help them shorten time-to-market, meet customer demands for new products, and satisfy increasingly complex customer requirements. With direct modeling even those who are infrequent CAD users can make changes to geometry quickly and easily.

Creo Elements/Direct Drafting

Creo Elements/Direct Drafting is a comprehensive 2D CAD system which meets the needs of both product designers and mechanical engineers. With an intuitive user interface, you can easily start working on concept designs while keeping a record of your ideas, what worked and what didn’t. You can do detailed design work, save it, and then open it in a 3D package to create an equally detailed 3D model.

Creo Elements/Direct Drafting gives you strong multi-CAD collaboration capabilities so reusing 2D designs or working with designs from other CAD systems is seamless. You also get powerful assembly management capabilities, simplifying the design and modification of assemblies by way of a clear parts, assembly, and sub-assembly structure – not layers. The Parts Browser helps you visualize, manage, and design, all within the browser.

Creo Elements/Direct Drafting customizable to fit your needs and optimize your 2D design process, so you can focus on optimizing your product.
