PTC Creo Simulation Extension Floating License gives designers and engineers the power to evaluate structural and thermal product performance on your digital model before resorting to costly, time-consuming physical prototyping. By gaining early insight into product behavior, you can greatly improve product quality while saving time, effort and money.

The software has the same user interface, workflow and productivity tools that are standard throughout the PTC Creo family. It is available as a standalone application or as an extension of PTC Creo Parametric.
