Why CAD Companies Can’t Ignore Subscription Licensing

There’s a backlash brewing in the world of software and it’s been percolating for some time. Partly due to economic pressures, fueled by the wealth of vendor and software options and enabled by the juggernaut of cloud, the way software is purchased is undergoing a radical shift. While companies are not quite ready to cut […]

Did You Know? PTC Creo 3.0 Enhancements: Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)

Up until now, preparing a model for 3D printing typically involved a number of software tools to design, optimize, and validate the design.  But switching among tools can be inefficient, error-prone, and disconnected. That’s why PTC recently introduced new capabilities to support 3D printing within PTC Creo. With the newly released PTC Creo 3.0 M040, you […]

Closing the 3D Printing Gap: An Interview with PTC’s Jose Coronado

For 20 years, manufacturers have been using additive manufacturing (3D printing) for prototyping. But lately, more and more PTC customers are turning to this same technology to manufacture production parts. The problem is, says PTC product manager Jose Coronado, the process was never designed for manufacturing via 3D printing. That’s why PTC partnered with Stratasys […]

Why Best-in-Class Manufacturers Use 3D Modeling

In the age of conspicuous consumption, consumers are consistently seeking newer, better, and increasingly more complex products. And that creates stiff competition for manufacturers—especially those who still rely on 2D CAD systems. According to a report on small- to medium-sized companies from the Aberdeen Group, “3D CAD is a critical application with the promise to […]

How to Optimize Designs for 3D Printing with PTC Creo

With 3D printing (or more correctly, additive manufacturing), product developers have new options for prototyping, tooling, sourcing, and even producing parts. But with all these new options come new requirements for modeling. As engineers design products that will be manufactured via 3D printing, they need to know whether the model will survive the printing process […]
