Creo Elements/Direct Drafting is a comprehensive 2D CAD system that 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.
Creo Elements/Direct Drafting extensions:
- Creo Elements/Direct 2D Access: Creo Elements/Direct 2D Access is a CAD viewer that offers rich 2D CAD visualization to improve your company's product development process. The intuitive graphical user interface is designed so that anyone can deploy it to read and inspect 2D drawings—even those without the authoring 2D CAD system or CAD expertise.
- Creo Elements/Direct Drawing Manager: Creo Elements/Direct Drawing Manager, the integrated data management tool for Creo Elements/Direct Drafting, eliminates the need for manual design data management. Customized for highly iterative design environments, Creo Elements/Direct Drawing Manager organizes 2D CAD data and associated files within a central database, allowing you to ensure design integrity and work with up-to-date revisions of design data across the team.
