PTC Creo

PTC Creo

PTC invented and first launched parametric CAD modeling software, Pro/ENGINEER nearly 30 years ago. It was renamed CREO in 2011, and today, product development professionals worldwide continue to use it to help them explore concept design ideas, create product designs, carry out simulations and analyses, and perform engineering calculations.

Why Creo

Creo is a suite of applications you can use to design products the way you want – not the way your CAD tool requires. With it, you can create, analyze, view, and share designs downstream using 2D CAD, 3D CAD, parametric and direct modeling capabilities. Each of its application shares the same user interface and is interoperable, meaning data can seamlessly transition from one to another.
