What's New in Creo
Creo is the 3D CAD solution that helps you accelerate product innovation so you can build better products faster. Easy-to-learn Creo seamlessly takes you from the earliest phases of product design to manufacturing and beyond.
You can combine powerful, proven functionality with new technologies such as generative design, augmented reality, real-time simulation, additive manufacturing. and the IoT to iterate faster, reduce costs, and improve product quality. The world of product development moves quickly, and only Creo delivers the transformative tools you need to build competitive advantage and gain market share.
Usability and productivity Deliver your best designs in less time with Creo 8 tools. Workflows are streamlined with improved dashboards and model tree interfaces and Snapshot makes it easy to review interim designs. Enhancements in hole features, routed systems, sheet metal, and Render Studio will have you completing your work in record time. Now, you can leverage inseparable assemblies for even easier management of purchased components.
Model-based definition (MBD) and detailing improvements Creo 8 has new and powerful MBD and detailing tools to help you create rich CAD models that become the source authority for manufacturing, inspection, and your supply chain. Creo 8 streamlines the workflow to reduce time, errors, and cost, while you improve quality across the enterprise. You can now apply geometric dimensioning and tolerancing for assemblies with the updated GD&T Advisor Plus extension. Detailing capabilities have also been enhanced with new sketching tools to easily convey design intent.
Enhancements to simulation and generative design Creo 8 helps you leverage the latest CAD technologies for high-quality, innovative designs. Creo’s cutting-edge generative design tools get even better with automatic envelope, draft-handling, and radius constraints. Enhancements to Creo Simulation Live provide steady-state flow analysis for real-time simulation during the design process. New Creo Ansys Simulation tools enable improved mesh and deflection control for high-fidelity design validation.
Advances in additive and subtractive manufacturing Creo 8 helps you easily optimize your designs for additive and traditional manufacturing. With the new additive capabilities, you can use advanced lattice structures to minimize weight. You can apply variable lattice structures based on simulation results. Enhancements to the build-direction and tray setup can increase production speed and build quality. For subtractive manufacturing, Creo 8 simplifies the programing of five-axis, high-speed milling toolpaths, resulting in reduced set-up and machining time.
Creo Enables the latest in Design
Generative Design Creo introduces breakthrough capabilitie s in the area of AI-driven generative design. Creo Generative Design creates optimized product designs with the power of the cloud. Simultaneously explore numerous innovative design options, with top options automatically highlighted. Generative Design automatically delivers high-quality, lower-cost, manufacturable designs, all within the Creo design environment. Deliver your best designs in less time with Creo Generative Design.
Creo Ansys Simulation Creo Ansys Simulation seamlessly integrates the power of Ansys, the leader in engineering simulation, directly into Creo. Built specifically for designers and engineers, this easy-to-use, fully-featured, high-fidelity simulation tool leverages Ansys’ capabilities for thermal, structural, and modal analyses. Furthermore, users can share loads and constraints with Creo Simulation Live during the design phase and export their simulation study to Ansys Mechanical.
Additive Manufacturing With Creo additive manufacturing, you can develop innovative designs, optimize, and print to a variety of printers with ease, all within Creo. With no more time-consuming, error-ridden hassle of multiple software packages, you can reduce time-to-market and expense with rapid prototyping and enable part consolidation. Creo 7 extensions feature enhanced lattice capabilities with the Delaunay stochastic algorithm and hard-edge definition, enabling lattice modeling, print tray optimization, and metal printing with support structures.
