See the PTC PLM Cloud in Action

Data management practices in small-to-medium-businesses (SMB’s) can range from adequate to hair raising. Files are often scattered across several machines, sometimes backed up on that USB thumb drive nobody has seen since last month. Finding the right file version for a review eats up your lunch break. Change tracking is haphazard, at best. But somehow, […]

3D Printing vs Additive Manufacturing

Let’s get into the first of a brace of posts on the subject of 3D printing. This time around the block, we’re going to talk about something that I get asked about a lot and something I’ve often seen being misconstrued in more general media – namely, the difference between 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing. […]

AMST Simulates the Frontiers of Aerospace with PTC Creo

How many of us, when we step into the cabin of an airplane, stop to consider the pilots’ training or their ability to navigate catastrophic disasters? Certainly, the more anxious among us do. But most of us needn’t worry—thanks, in part, to companies like Austria Metall Systemtechnik (AMST). As an industry leader in simulation equipment for civil […]

ComputerWorld UK: 3D Printing Gets a Boost as Major Design Software Vendor Partners with Printer Firm

IoT firm and design software specialists PTC is collaborating with a 3D printer firm to optimise the computer assisted design-to-printing process for manufacturers. Typically designers and manufacturers use a variety of tools along with 3D CAD software to design, optimise and validate parts before 3D printing, which leaves opportunities for mistakes. Now Stratasy’ 3D printers will work seamlessly with PTC’s Creo 3.0 design […]

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 […]

PTC Creo View MCAD: Detect and Report Clash and Clearance Issues without 3D CAD

In a world where product designs include parts from different sources and designers, it’s not unusual to find pieces that collide or don’t leave enough space. That’s why most 3D CAD systems include tools for finding interferences and checking clearances. But here’s the problem. Most people who take part in design reviews and validation processes […]

Rendering: It’s the Real Thing

Remember when achieving a funky organic shape or quirky lighting effect was a major accomplishment that pushed the limits of 3D modeling? Today, those small wins are table stakes as engineering teams kick up the level of realism a notch while expanding use of digital prototyping. As more companies come to rely on a digital […]
