Why Best-in-Class Manufacturers Expect Change

Dealing with change is a known challenge for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Whether it’s a new design requirement, engineering change order, or last-minute customer request, changes disrupt tight schedules,  causing delays and cost overruns. But not everybody falls behind when confronted with the unexpected. In fact, some companies distinguish themselves with how they handle change. Best-in-Class Plan […]

IMA Engineers Productivity with PTC Creo FMX

Working with design files you didn’t create can be painful if you are a product development engineer. When your partners and suppliers use different CAD file formats, or when you need to edit a legacy model that you have little information about, you can spend more time recreating models than designing them. That’s one reason […]

Why Top Innovators Use Direct and Parametric Modeling


PTC promotes both parametric and direct modeling for 3D product development. While some companies model their parts and assemblies with one or the other, more are using a combination of parametric and direct approaches. We’d like to introduce you to three such companies: medical device maker Digi02, optics manufacturer Calin Technology Co., and engineering firm […]

Three Innovators Who Depend on Direct Modeling

PTC is a well-known for parametric modeling. We were founded on the technology in 1985, and today our software can be found in tens of thousands of companies worldwide. But for some companies, in some situations, direct modeling works out better. For these companies, the flexibility of direct modeling has given them the freedom to […]

Three Manufacturers That Can’t Live Without Direct Modeling

The world’s most innovative manufacturers have something in common, regardless of which industry they operate in: They value flexible product design tools. That’s why many of them use direct modeling in combination with parametric modeling. The approach helps their ideas evolve quickly from concept to final, detailed design. Here’s a quick look at three manufacturers […]

Unlock the Value of Legacy Data

Have you been using CAD for a while? Has your company? If yes, you probably have a rich store of CAD models that you need to move forward when you update your CAD environment. There are three basic workflows for migrating legacy data: 1. All at once, before the team starts using the new CAD tool […]

PTC in High Tech: Atop Technologies

A wind farm in southern Europe uses video surveillance and telemetry to monitor each of its towers. An operator will have to collect data from a single workstation. A manufacturer in China has more CNC machines than serial ports on the computer. A public transportation system in North America uses card readers to collect fares. […]

Is Direct Modeling Really Better at Capturing Design Intent?

CAD industry analyst Chad Jackson struck a chord with readers of this blog recently when he declared that “Direct modeling is better at capturing design intent.” At last count, the blog post had generated 220 likes on Facebook, so I think it’s safe to say that many designers agree with Jackson’s assertion that when it comes […]

Simplifying Models for Analysis Using the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension

PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension

Recently, I discussed how the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX) makes working with imported CAD data , and accommodating late stage design changes much easier. Today, I’d like to discuss how PTC Creo FMX ( an extension of PTC Creo Parametric, the 3D modeling software) can help simplify models for analysis for both the […]
