Profiles in Flexible Modeling: FSG

Frank Glogowski knows his strengths. As the CEO/Principal Designer at FSG Design, he offers his customers a close collaborative relationship, a network of experts, and a level of responsiveness not available in bigger engineering firms.

Among the companies numerous projects is the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector, a glow-in-the-dark handheld instrument used by firefighters and miners to detect dangerous gases. The company also redesigned the Aetheon TUG, a robotic transport system for tracking and delivering hospital goods. Plus it’s behind some of the body panels you see in NASCAR automobiles.

Glogowski says his team can engage from strategic brief to production launch. That’s helpful to large companies that may want to throw a project over the wall. It’s also invaluable to startups that may be going through the process for the first time.

One way this limber design firm outpaces its competition is by using PTC Creo, and the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX).

If you’re not familiar with FMX, it adds direct editing capabilities to PTC Creo Parametric. That means that when you need to work on a model, especially one created in a different system or where the design intent is vague, you don’t have to start from scratch or manually re-edit definitions.

Here’s a really good demo:

At FSG, Glogowski says “PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension(FMX) is invaluable for working with my partner network. I can import any of their diverse design files into PTC Creo and start modeling and surfacing right away. No other vendor offers anything like it.”

PTC Creo FMX gives users like Glogowski the ability to quickly accommodate last-minute changes or to work with models where the design intelligence is unavailable. In other words, it makes him responsive to his customers no matter what they need and when they need it. It reinforces his strengths as a flexible, innovative, and responsive engineering and design firm.

In our side-by-side comparisons, we found PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension 52% faster compared to working with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5. Glogowski, who also maintains other CAD systems for his customers’ benefit, says PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension is one of the reasons PTC Creo is his first choice in design software.

“PTC Creo saves me 30-40% of time compared to SolidWorks. As a solution provider, I lead with PTC Creo.”
