In preparation for March Madness, let’s throw you into the game. In this game of design you’re the point guard, PTC Creo is your court, and all those players on the court are apps with specific skills that you open with a mighty click of the mouse. Import/export nightmares are gone, and every day is a Home game.
With these odds, you can’t lose.
This is how PTC reinvented the game of CAD design: one common data model, one user interface, and a range of apps. Plus, you can pass from one design application to another without having to save and export files.
This video provides a great example of how the interoperability of PTC Creo is taught to college students. When a component presents too much tension on a wheel, the speaker creates a design in PTC Creo Parametric and interprets the design through its range of motion. After isolating forces at specific moments, he applies those forces in PTC Creo Simulate to do Finite Element Analysis. Upon stress analysis, the speaker shows how he makes immediate changes in the design in PTC Creo Parametric to reduce the stress on the component.
The simplicity is all in the ribbon user interface. No more opening multiple applications. In other words, it’s a game well-played.
Component passes to PTC Creo Parametric in the left wing; Parametric drives to the middle kicks it back to Finite Element Analysis. FEA simulation plays and… Parametric gets the rebound. That play was money (saved) and CAD design reaches superstar status.
