The international standard in 3D CAD software for product development

Developing excellent products and quickly adapting to changing volumes and customer-specific configurations even faster and more cost effectively, without compromising on the quality and service that your customers expect. Do these challenges sound familiar? PTC Creo helps you to stay in the race and adapt more quickly.

More than the sum of its parts

Creo is not a single solution, rather it is a coherent unit of mutually reinforcing packages and tools for 3D CAD design and product development. Your current needs determine where and how you begin. As your desire for specific functionalities increases, Creo grows with your company. Your development and production qualities are always in tune with market dynamics.

Creo has been developed to create, inspire and innovate. A stand-out feature is its flexibility, thanks to the modular design and the option to continue adding extensions to your applications. The result in qualities such as convenience, creativity, divisibility and time savings is greater than the sum of its parts.

Modelling and designing

Convert ideas and concepts quickly into tangible 3D models, designed and drawn exactly down to the millimetre. Creating digital prototypes saves your organisation time and money and allows you to respond quickly to market developments and customer wishes. You shorten the time between the initial idea and the end result, giving your engineers more time for product optimisation. Creo provides efficient and innovative solutions for all aspects of direct and parametric modelling.

Simulation and analysis

How do new products perform under changing, real and practical conditions? How do adjustments to details contribute to improved performance? You don’t launch something new onto the market without sound analysis and testing processes. Creo makes everything transparent and measurable, and provides essential information for product optimisation.

Smart connected design

Are your development teams ready for a seismic shift in CAD design? Can they handle the power and extra dimension of the Industrial Internet of Things and augmented reality? With the Creo Product Insight Extension, you can generate all conceivable information about products and trends that are relevant to all your future product innovations. The Creo Product Insight Extension is fully compatible with ThingWorx, the advanced IoT platform from PTC.

Sharing and exchanging

Isn’t it annoying how CAD systems don’t work with one another? Compatibility between applied systems is a long way off. But you don’t want to let any opportunity pass you by to share basic development steps with customers and stakeholders, without losing valuable time on complicated translation processes. Creo functions in any CAD environment and optimises your collaboration with customers and external engineers. With the Creo Unite technology, your engineers can open any type of file – quickly and securely. This saves you time and reduces the chance of error.

Additive manufacturing

3D printing is the future and offers unique opportunities to put your virtual 3D sample to the test. With the Creo 4.0 Additive Manufacturing Extension, you will be ready for the future. What you see is what you print. You will quickly implement unique steps to create tangible prototypes.

Model-based definition

Do your engineers still work with 2D drawings to share manufacturing specifications? Then you have a new world of efficiency to benefit from. Creo provides effective solutions for model-based definition (MBD) design methods. As a result, you can establish all the product information in your 3D models directly and automatically. With the GD&T Advisor Extension you can also rest assured that each creation meets the ASME standards (American Society of Mechanical Engineers).
