PTC Creo Design Exploration Extension (DEX) is a dedicated tool for enabling the quick and easy investigation of alternative concept designs within the parametric environment.
Using “checkpoints”, PTC Creo DEX eliminates the need to manage multiple versions of data and allows designers to move seamlessly back and forth between design branches.
Quickly and easily explore different design methodologies - The PTC Creo Design Exploration Extension (DEX) enables users to quickly and effectively evaluate design alternatives and determine the most effective modeling approach. Furthermore, if a user explores design path but determines it is not the most effective, they can quickly revert back to an earlier saved “checkpoint” without having to completely recreate the model. By supporting an evolutionary concept design process, PTC Creo DEX streamlines the workflow from weeks to days.
Evaluate multiple design concepts - Changing a product design and exploring new ideas is a technical challenge, especially when developing complex systems with many interdependent components. Typically, this process involves manual backup of models to ad-hoc folders, a repeated closing and cleaning session, and manually revisiting and reviewing iterations until making a decision. PTC Creo DEX helps you work through the process of changing, ideating, and evaluating new designs with an innovative, robust, and intuitive tool made specifically for that purpose.
