Creo 11 helps you power your product development

New in Creo


PTC is proud to announce Creo 11, the latest version of our award-winning, powerful, yet easy-to-use CAD system. Creo helps you deliver your best designs in less time, with a wide range of enhancements for electrification, composites, model-based definition, simulation-driven design, and advanced manufacturing.

Creo simplifies your workflows and provides an unbroken chain of design, with no export/import needed. So, when your design requirements change, you can easily update your model to reflect the new conditions.

Creo 11 is better than ever, with exciting improvements to the tools you use every day.


On-demand webinar: Power your designs with Creo 11 and Creo+

This on-demand event will teach you about the enhancements in Creo 11, with exclusive first-look demonstrations that will show you how to deliver your best designs in less time.

  • Usability and productivity enhancements you will use every day

Deliver your best designs in less time with Creo.


Exceptional usability and productivity

With every release, Creo introduces improvements to make design engineers more productive every day.

Creo now supports multibody concepts for designs containing multiple sheet metal and regular bodies, allowing you to better design sheet metal parts in context.

In addition, you can now transfer solid bodies from parts of an assembly into a single multibody part using the Shrink-wrap feature, making it easier and faster to work with your complex designs.

Creo now features an enhanced enclosure volume feature, to optimize and calculate the minimum bounding box of your part or assembly for packaging optimization.


New features and functionality

Updated Creo functionality includes innovative CAD tools for designing composites, conducting real-time simulation, and streamlining manufacturing. Creo also continues to expand electrification and model-based definition capabilities.


Creo has improved cabling and ECAD-MCAD collaboration capabilities to power your circuitry and cabling designs.

Cabling tools for manipulation of locations have been improved. Locations can now be placed tangent to any Coordinate System axis and the “Remove Locations” tool has been completely overhauled for easier use. Placement of custom components and splices has been enhanced, and harness settings can now be changed during routing. Additionally, the cabling tree has been updated for greater visibility of harness structure and cabling entities.

ECAD capabilities have also been extended with the addition of Transparency Control, for improved visibility of PCB stack-up and overlapping ECAD layers.

Explore Electrification


Design engineers are finding applications of composite materials in more products than ever, and Creo 11 continues to expand composites design, simulation, and manufacturing capabilities. Creo has expanded functionality for transitions, laminate sections, and draping simulations. You can even use zone-based design to define and automatically build plies from zones. Manufacturing has been enhanced with extended ply boundaries, core sampling and the ability to export to leading laser projection systems.

Explore Composites

Model-based definition

Creo now gives you even more powerful model-based definition tools to provide greater clarity with less effort. Now you can easily organize your design data in simple tables that can be read by humans and machines, with both user-defined text, parameter callouts, and semantic references.

Creating MBD annotations for cylindrical features is quicker, and semantic query is now available for inheritance models. GD&T Advisor has been updated to support ISO 22081 standard for general tolerances, for combined simplified hole callouts and enriched definition for slab and slot features.

Explore MBD


Creo includes new simulation-driven design capabilities, for better design ideation, guidance, and validation. Creo’s award-winning generative design has been improved with minimum feature size constraints, bearing load support and planar symmetry constraints.

Creo Simulation Live now includes conjugate heat transfer to enable heat transfer between solid geometry and fluid bodies, as well as expanded results for all types of CSL studies. And Creo Ansys Simulation also has transient structure analysis, which is used to determine the dynamic response of a structure with a time-dependent load.

Explore Simulation


As always, Creo has improvements for both additive and subtractive manufacturing. For additive manufacturing, you can now connect two or more lattices with different cell types on a single continuous lattice structure and adjust pore size control for stochastic lattices. In addition, Creo has also expanded 3MF STL export options.

For subtractive manufacturing, High-Speed Milling now features 4-Axis rotary milling, plus trajectory milling enhancements. And 4-Axis area turning user interface has been improved, too.

Explore CAM

Creo+ combines the power and proven functionality of Creo, delivered via SaaS

Creo+ provides all the capabilities of Creo 11, plus cloud-enabled collaboration and license management / deployment tools.

Creo+ collaboration tools enable multiple team members to review, explore and edit part design - in real time. Collaboration is now easier to use and supports mechanism assemblies.

Creo+ has cloud-based desktop tools for license management, deployment, and telemetry services, now including engineering notebook. You can even monitor and provide feedback on network connectivity. There are also usability enhancements for defining shortcuts and launching Creo+.
