Concept Design and Industrial Design

Generate, explore, and innovate with concept design and optimize your products’ aesthetic quality with industrial design tools.

What is concept design?

Concept design is the initial big picture or macro design. It shows us what problems the product will solve, how it will solve them, and what it will feel like as it is solving them. Arguably the most creative stage of product development, concept design is stickies slapped on whiteboards, ink and wash, napkins and crayons even. It calls on us to consider sweeping ideas and all the various possibilities. The more the better. In concept design lies the very soul of innovation.

Easily handle complex curves and production-ready surfaces

Industrial Designers know it takes powerful tools to achieve complex curves, the smoothest of high-quality surfaces, and compelling renderings. With Creo use the freestyle design capabilities to do rapid freeform surfacing and attach that surface to your parametric model. Take advantage of Creo Parametric’s technical surfacing capabilities or choose extensions for advanced surfacing and rendering.

Finally, use augmented reality (AR) to share your design with stakeholders anywhere in the world. You create the experience in Creo, send team members a link that they click to visualize your work against a real-world backdrop.
