We’ve written a lot about PTC Creo Simulate in this blog lately because it’s a great tool for basic structural, thermal, and vibration analysis. However, it’s not the only simulation or analysis tool for PTC Creo users. There are seven more.
About 120 miles east of Moscow, lies one of Russia’s more popular tourist destinations, Vladimir. With buildings that date back to the 1200s, the city is part of the Golden Ring—ancient cities that preserve the most important events in Russian history. But look closer, and you’ll find among Vladimir’s medieval cathedrals and arches some thriving […]
In March, we saw the most robust traffic on posts about new product capabilities. At the same time, a little technical advice from a long-time PTC University instructor became an instant hit. Here are the most read articles of March.
Traditional PLM systems are complex organisms that require a lot of planning, investment, and IT resources to do correctly. As such, you might wonder how the SaaS version of PTC’s PLM technology compares to what bigger enterprises are using.
Alternative materials and all sorts of streamlined parts have become common practice in car designs as manufacturers push to add lighter weight, more fuel-efficient vehicles to their fleets. Electronic device makers are packing gobs more technology into ever-tighter spaces, and aerospace engineers are constantly raising the bar on engine design and integrated control systems to […]
It’s hard to predict what PTC Creo might model next. The leading 3D CAD software sits in research, manufacturing, and educational settings worldwide, creating everything from kid’s toys to outer space robots. What has it done lately? Revived 3 classic motorcycle brands, turned a student into an inventor, and decorated the new terminal at Heathrow.
Where do dimensions come from? More likely than not, you or somebody else calculates them. Heights, surface areas, fastener lengths—somebody does the math and figures out exactly what parameters a model needs to perform to spec. It’s all part of an engineer’s job. So where is that math today? As part of a company’s intellectual […]
In some industries, you engineer products to be sturdy so that they’ll survive an accidental drop from the kitchen counter. In other industries, you’re up against far more hostile elements. In fact, you may be engineering for users who intentionally beat up your things—over and over. Rába Axle, whose tag line is “We Engineer, You Drive” produces […]

When you consider the level of intelligence, automation, and frankly, jaw dropping amazingness of most of today’s 3D design and engineering tools, it’s perhaps a curious thing to note that most systems don’t provide much in the way of support for one of the most fundamental parts of the design and engineering process – mathematics […]
PTC Creo Design Exploration Extension (DEX) is an extension that we introduced with PTC Creo 3.0 and, by now, much has been written about the tool. So much, in fact, that you may be unsure about where to start or what you missed. That’s why we’re posting this article. It’s like the executive summary, but better […]
