What is Creo?

Nov 26, 2018

Creo, the shorthand name for Creo Parametric, is a powerful and intuitive 3D CAD software optimized to address the challenges organizations face as they design, analyze, and share information with downstream partners. Developed by PTC, the original pioneers of parametric CAD, Creo is a powerful foundational software supporting an integrated family of product design tools…

PTC acquires Frustum: Adds Artificial Intelligence & Generative Design Capabilities to its CAD Portfolio

On November 20, 2018, PTC announced the ~$70M acquisition of an advanced generative design software company named Frustum Inc. Frustum’s technology leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to generate design options in a process called “generative design.” It will be worth your time to follow this acquisition and how PTC incorporates the technology into their flagship offerings….

Sharpen your saw – Stay sharp by attending PTC Certified Training Courses

Stephen Covey’s landmark book ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ lists the 7th critical habit as “Sharpen the saw.” It references a parable of a lumberjack and a stranger. The woodsman is very busy cutting down trees. As he completes more and more work his effort increases and his productivity goes down because his…

Creating more complex 2D plots with Mathcad Prime 5.0

PTC Mathcad Prime delivers powerful engineering calculation management to help predict design behavior, drive critical parameters and dimensions, and enhance the visualization of your data with 2D plotting. Since there was a lot of feedback from users that there needed be improvements to the plotting features in previous Mathcad releases, Mathcad Prime 5.0 is almost…

Topology Optimization Directly Within Creo 5.0!

In a recent Tip of the Week video over on our YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/eacpds) I talked about a new feature in PTC Creo 5.0 – Topology Optimization. Topology optimization has been around for about 20 years, but primarily as stand alone solutions. In spring 2018 PTC announced they had fully embedded a solution from the…

Simulation saves time and validates designs

Did you know you can test and simulate designs in a matter of seconds, with just a few simple parameters? You can. Take a look at the video at the top of this post. That’s not magic. It’s Discovery Live. In this video ANSYS runs simulations on 4 design ideas in about 20 seconds! Engineers…

Simulation in the Hands of Every Engineer

Engineering simulation is the key that will unlock your future innovation. It is the quickest way to validate and optimize designs. These software tools are no longer obscure systems that require specialized skill sets. Some engineers and designers still shy away from simulation software, but that is quickly changing for two reasons. 1) There have…
