Working with Imported CAD Data Using the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension

Working with Imported CAD Data in PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension

A couple of weeks ago, I discussed the Import Data Doctor capabilities within PTC Creo Parametric, a task-based repair tool designed to repair, modify or featurize geometry imported into PTC Creo Parametric from external sources. But what if you’re looking to make further changes to your imported data? Such as editing the geometry? Working with […]

Revolutionize Your Product Reviews

Clients have a way of changing their minds during product reviews. Management and marketing, too. The very thing they asked for last week, no longer pleases them this week once they see the latest design. It happens to all designers and engineers. But now you can do something about it. You can use PTC Creo […]

Could Flexible Modeling Fix Your Design Challenges?

If you’re unfamiliar with PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (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 or not needed, you don’t have to start from scratch or […]

Eight drinking straws in rainbow colors

Engineering by definition is a rather straightforward pursuit. Using scientific and mathematical principles to solve problems sounds pretty rigid, right? The reality of problem solving, however, is that it is inherently a fluid process, one that continues to flow and evolve until an optimal solution is found. In product design, this means exploring, iterating, changing, […]

FSG: Improving Client Relationship by Consolidating CAD

There’s a level of security in keeping all those old college t-shirts in the top of your closet. The reality is, it just clutters everything and you don’t really wear them. Such is deciding to consolidate your CAD processes into a single solution. It’s a scary step to “out” the old and “in” the new, […]

Traditionally, complex surface design required a high degree of expertise, time, and effort. A company would typically use one tool for design and the other for engineering. Also, the process of transitioning designs can be burdensome as well, with a time-consuming and error-prone translation process. The Freestyle design tools within PTC Creo Parametric give users […]

Suppliers and Partners Speak a Foreign CAD Language?

Chances are that at least some members of your product design supply chain create files in a format different than your preferred CAD system.  Just look at this data from a recent Aberdeen survey: 66% of 3D CAD files are delivered in a format other than the preferred one. Most companies now support three or more […]
