"Best Direct Modeling program available"

What do you like best?

Very robust and powerful 3D Direct Modeling software. Great capabilities, made even better with the use of add-on software. Even though PTC isn't adding many new features to this product line, add-on products from companies like AI MAXTools bring great new functionality, including to older versions.

What do you dislike?

PTC isn't supporting it as much now as they used to, and isn't adding many new features. However, this shortcoming can be mitigated by using some of the great add-on products from companies like AI MAXTools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

3D Modeling of parts and assemblies, including getting them ready for manufacture.

"Perfect tool for flexible small designing, modeling"

What do you like best?

Best thing is that its free. Its very much versatile for quick concept designs and also its free to download.

Visual and graphics is more than what is required for concept developers and to run a prototype production run.We can create and modify design data in real-time. Highly interactive features which is very beneficials for amature designers such as direct cut-and paste, push-and-pull and drag-and-drop techniques

What do you dislike?

Nothing as of now. It is good for beginners and who are working on developing concepts. cannot be used for full time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommend to all Product development engineers for rapid design and prototyping and also tooling/MFG engineers, Advanced MEs designing tooling and process for new product line setup.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick design of concepts.

Support initial PD phase by quickly building the prototype design which helps is checking manufacturability..

Its very lightweight software making it ease of installation and use.

Easily Import and edit 2D and 3D design data.

Create and modify design data in real-time. Drive design changes through direct push-and-pull paradigms.

We can design using either a top-down or bottom-up approach, or drag-and-drop your parts and assemblies.

What Product and Machine Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Using PTC Creo for computer modeling. "

What do you like best?

PTC Creo allows users to CAD nearly anything that comes to mind. Any basic tool shapes are very easy to create once there is a clear understanding of the different actions and commands available within the PTC Creo menus. I have been using Creo for the past couple of years to CAD everything from varying nanoparticle shapes to basic parts for the construction of a motor. Very user friendly and an incredibly useful tool all in all.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve can get difficult. It definitely took me some time to get used to the product itself. I initially took a class to learn the basics of it and that made it easier for me to get accustomed to the product. With this knowledge and some time I spent on my own I was able to learn all the knowledge that allows me to create what I can but without it I can understand users having a difficult time adjusting. Also to sculpt and make more out of the box shapes there is additional understanding of surface modeling to pick up which can be quite difficult without some guidance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently I am working on being able to nanomanufacture gold particles using varying DNA solutions and this program has allowed me to create even the most complex shapes and ideas on the computer and put them through different simulations. Thanks to PTC being able to export to basically any format I am able to use it easily alongside my other simulation products.

"PTC Creo is an excellent mechanical design tool"

What do you like best?

Creo is an excellent solid modeling tool.

What do you dislike?

The 2-D to 3-D interface can be a bit tricky when it comes to dimensions and GD&T.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare the user interface and power of design tools to other products on the market (i.e. solidworks, catia, etc....), Creo matches or exceeds them in most categories.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting BOM information out of Creo and into the hands of purchasing and manufacturing is very simple.
