Customer Quote

“I like using Creo because I can create a moveable geometry part, which means I can move the bike around and change position of various bits depending where I want them to be, I can do FEA and now I can do the surfacing. It is a one-stop shop and I haven’t got to jump from one system to another to another depending on what I am doing. So, it’s nice and easy for me from a user’s point of view – I can just get on and go.”

What are PTC Creo Parametric’s Key Capabilities?

3D Solid Modelling

Create 3D parametric models of parts & assemblies. Create precise geometry, regardless of model

Technical Surfacing

Develop complex surface geometry using sweeps, blends, extends, offsets, and a variety of other
specialised features

Robust Assembly Modelling

PTC Creo is renowned for being able to hold assemblies with numerous parts without crashing, creating opportunity to design from a bolt to an aeroplane and mange the assembly so it is easily editable

Freestyle Surfacing

Ability to create fluid shapes quickly and efficiently through manipulating the model into the shape you
require. Great tool for creating more organic shapes

Detailed Documentation including 2D and 3D Engineering drawings

Create detailed engineering drawings, suitable for manufacture

Work With Non-Native Data From 3rd Party CAD Systems

Bring in 3rd party 3D CAD files, retaining the same geometry. Import Solidworks, NX, Catia & others

Design For Additive Manufacture (3D Print)

PTC Creo has functionality to print directly from the Creo environment. With an additional Additive Manufacture module available to create latticing within 3D printed models

PTC Product Range Integration

PTC Creo integrates with PTC's product range, including Windchill, Illustrate, Mathcad etc

Digital Human Modelling

Insert and manipulate a digital human inside your CAD model

PTC Creo's Key Benefits Over 3rd Party 3D CAD Systems

Large Assembly Management

PTC Creo has the functionality to withhold very large assemblies and function. Unlike other 3D CAD Systems, Creo can provide optimum performance with well over 200 parts. However, other CAD systems can crash and fail to hold this volume of parts

Native Data Management

Flex Modelling is embedded within the core functionality of PTC Creo and allow users to import native data from other CAD systems and enable users to edit these files

Design Extension

There is a range of design extensions that can aid certain areas of the design process. These are tailored to certain applications

Freestyle Surfacing

Creo also has surfacing capabilities that other CAD systems aren’t capable of doing. Creo provides a wide range of extensions that are tailored to certain applications

Top Enhancements in Creo 7.0



Within Creo 7.0 is the most comprehensive suite of additive manufacturing capabilities in the market today,
the innovation by enhancing support for Stochastic Lattices, enabling them to identify and follow the edges of prismatic shapes.

From a traditional machining point of view, we've enabled support for Swiss turning machines, so you can select Swiss turning in Mill Turn Work Centre, instead of manually adding custom commands.



Don’t settle. Generative Topology Optimisation creates optimized product designs based on your constraints and requirements—including materials and manufacturing processes.

Rapidly explore innovative design options to reduce development time and expense, all within the Creo design environment. AI-driven GTO helps you to deliver high-quality, lower-cost, manufacturable designs.

The Generative Design extension (GDX) allows you to quickly evaluate and compare more design concepts, increasing your confidence in the final chosen design, before bringing it back to Creo for further downstream use.

Leverage the power of the cloud to run multiple optimisation studies in parallel, dramatically improving your productivity.



Creo 7.0 introduces SIMULATION LIVE - Offering design guidance at it's most optimal, guaranteeing more speed and guidance than in previous versions.
Now equipped with real-time, instantaneous fluid flow simulation as well as parameter studies, plotting/graphing, transient thermal studies, and the ability to isolate components. Without the nuisance of windows or waiting.

Move from receiving directional guidance to a richer set of capabilities that produce a higher-fidelity validation of your design. With Creo ANSYS Simulation, you now have access to the proven ANSYS solvers directly inside Creo, allowing you to perform structural, modal, and thermal analysis with ease.

The software runs smoothly in the background giving you instantaneous dynamic feedback in your Creo modelling environment.



Multibody design significantly improves design effectiveness for users when building complex geometry by allowing you to freely and efficiently work with disjointed, touching, or overlapping geometry within a single part.

As well as significantly improving overall design efficiency, it is also critical in areas such as generative design, additive manufacturing, and designing multi-material overmolds for injection molded parts
