Creo

Engineering CAD and product lifecycle management software

About Creo

Creo is an engineering CAD software that helps businesses optimize the entire product lifecycle using augmented reality, real-time simulation, additive manufacturing, and generative designing methodologies from within a unified platform. It enables staff members to utilize the sketching and parametric designing tools to modify product drawings, optimizing 3D conceptualization processes.

Creo allows staff members to analyze the performance of 3D prototypes by conduction real-time modal, thermal, structural, and fluid flow simulations. It also lets team members create top-down designs, conduct tolerance analysis, generate mold designs, manage production machining, and more on a centralized platform.

I love the Creo Tools, one of the best used in the market, has all the functionality and features for creating complex models and parametric parts that are needed in the engineering world, integrates with other downstream tools that I needed for simulation and NC coding.
Single tool that helps designing products volume Industrial and automotive sector.

Pros

Modeling tool helps in engineering the product complexity, very strong tool for automotive companies who deals with complex parts such as powertrain and engines dad needs a lot of parts & assembly.
Has advanced features for real time design feedback and helps in improving efficiency with topology optimization.
The Sketcher to helps in creating the 2D drawings and industrial drawings that captures the concept level model and can be converted into an actual engineering drawings with the same software.
PTC company involved in the digital twin capabilities that integrates the models that can be repurposed for the digital twin and also for the argument reality.
simulation tool that are available wait in the creo helps to validate D models trends and product features at the design stage

Cons

Creo is expensive compared to Solidworks or Solidedge.
Complex features make it less user friendly, example layer are hassle and need to leatn how to use the system files.
Automation has limitation as it follows less programing /API integartions

I have been using Creo for the past 17 Years and do not want to run anything else

Pros

have run Solidworks, AutoCad, SDRC IDEAS, and PTC Wildfire and Creo, by far Creo is the best tool I have used in my 42 year design career

Cons

Sometimes it does very heavy designs and has no issues and every once in a great while on something simple it will crash , but they all do that from what I have seen.

I have used PTC CREO (and other) products that pre-date the CREO name. The software is usable in a controlled environment and with sufficient support resources. Probably best for larger organizations that are also using Windchill PDM.

Pros

Flexible modeling, goal seeking, are interesting

Cons

This software is not for the new user. Unlike some if its competitors, you need and experienced administrator to make sure the myriad of possible configuration settings conform to you intended use. If you create models, etc... without understanding the configuration, the model can be worthless.

The software, when you consider it overall, an exceptional one in terms of its capabilities. And from the Creo View sub module I get the impression that it is good to create a simple working part for each design which only targets a specific duty. So it improves my modular design experience

Pros

The system that Creo implement to its products is very beneficial, they create a submodule for each specific task and Creo View is one of them. This creates an opportunity to make more emphasized softwares and it provides a productive working environment.

Cons

The overall interface is a little bit problematic and hard to use and it leads a little bit confusion for starters.

Core has been an amazing software to use from end to end and has been a great support in the Industry that heavily relies on 3-D modeling.

Pros

The ability of the software to give a wide range of modeling tools to be able to reach a final desired outcome.The software works perfectly in network areas with multiple people working on the same Assembly model at the same time.

Cons

The software needs an upgrade on the navigation through all the features it has provided the end user in order to use it with ease.
