About the 2021 CADference, Introducing Creo 8:

This popular virtual event returned for a fourth year on May 4, 2021. Attendees had the chance to learn how PTC helps you design better products faster, with an insiders’ guide to what’s new in Creo 8. Our lineup of experts below details all the enhancements, including usability, model-based definition, generative design, simulation, additive manufacturing, and 5-axis high-speed milling.

Even post-event, the Creo product team is always on-hand to answer your questions. Reach out to a Creo expert any time.

Welcome: Creo 8 and the Future of CAD

Join Brian Thompson and Paul Sagar to learn about the strategy that is driving Creo development and investment. Get an overview of Creo 8 - our most powerful and easy-to-use CAD system, now with tools to help you deliver innovative designs, on time and at cost.

Agenda and Webcast Replays

Watch replays from our May 4, 2021 virtual event below.




Session 1
Usability and Productivity Deliver your best designs in less time with Creo 8 tools. Workflows are streamlined with improved dashboards and model tree interfaces, and Snapshot makes it easy to review interim designs. Enhancements in hole features, routed systems, sheet metal and Render Studio will have you completing your work in record time.

Martin Neumüller, Sr. Director of Product Management at PTC

Dave Martin, Creo, Windchill, and PTC Mathcad Instructor and Consultant

Session 2
Model-Based Definition and Detailing Discover new and powerful MBD and detailing tools, to help you create rich CAD models that become the source authority for manufacturing, inspection and your supply chain. Michael Fridman, PTC’s Product Manager for MBD & Detailing at PTC
Session 3
Optimization and Simulation Leverage the latest CAD technologies for high quality, innovative designs. Creo’s cutting-edge generative design tools get even better with automatic envelope, draft-handling, and radius constraints. Enhancements to Creo Simulation Live and Creo Ansys Simulation provide improved ease-of-use and better simulation results. And easy-to-use 5-axis milling tools helps you save time with fewer set-ups.

Celia Lee, Sr. Director, Technical Product Manager PTC

Luke Westbrook, Sr. Product Manager, CAD Product Management PTC

Todd Kraft, Manager, CAD Product Management

Session 4
Advances in Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing Optimize your designs for additive and traditional manufacturing. With the new additive capabilities, you can use advanced lattice structures to minimize weight. You can apply variable lattice structures based on simulation results.

Jose Coronado, Product Management Director, PTC,

Nihal Velpanur, Product Manager PTC
