PTC today released the ninth version of its Creo® market-leading computer-aided design (CAD) software with the promise of helping engineers present their best product designs in less time.
Creo 9 includes major enhancements and enhanced features that foster innovation with emerging features such as generative design, real-time simulation and additive manufacturing.
Brian Thompson, vice president of general and general manager of Creo at PTC, said: “Creo 9 is an important version and our customer reviews played a big part in making it happen.”
“We have made major improvements such as partitioning capabilities and stronger management of design intentions to benefit our customers, while focusing on modern technologies that transform product design – including simulation, generative design and additive manufacturing. .
“Finally, to better support our customers, we have strengthened Creo’s ergonomics capabilities. All of these improvements are designed to help engineers bring their best designs to market faster. ”
The new version brings updates to engineers for:
- Usability and performance: Investments in the basic modeling environment focus on usability and performance, including model tree updates to speed up structuring, documenting, and understanding design intent, as well as a new surface separation feature to improve analysis and definition. product.
- More powerful simulation and generative design capabilities: Ansys’ advanced multiphysics is integrated into Creo’s simulation portfolio. PTC’s industry-leading generative design technology also adds important new capabilities, enabling engineers to define optimization studies with designed safety factors and natural frequency limits.
- Model-based definition (MBD) and improvements in detail: Ongoing investment in model-based product design, especially in finishing and welding, means that consumers can include specialized information on downstream production right on the model, for better efficiency and communication.
- Ergonomic design and vision: Advanced ergonomic tools help designers recognize the uniqueness of consumers, while helping to ensure that products meet health and safety standards in the workplace. Using the new field of view analysis capability, engineers can analyze users’ line of sight and field of vision while driving or using equipment.
- Progress in additive and subtractive production: Creo 9 provides improved control over stochastic and formula-based grids and user-defined support structures for advanced use cases in additive manufacturing. Continuous improvements in subtractive production focus on 5-axis finishing trajectories of the tool, turning, die design and adaptive feed rates for milling.
