CAD |Digital Product Development

What is Computer-Aided Design (CAD)?

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) has transformed the generation of 2D drawings and 3D models for real-world items, enabling digital prototyping before production begins. Users using 3D CAD may easily simulate, change, share, and evaluate designs, accelerating innovation and allowing competitive items to enter the market more quickly. PTC Creo provides comprehensive design solutions to meet a wide range of customer needs while maintaining efficient and precise CAD capabilities.

CAD Digital Product Development

What is Digital Product Development?

Digital product development involves the careful creation and oversight of an entire digital process leading up to the production of the physical product, which involves all stages from imagining fresh product concepts to the final design stage. In the fast-paced business climate of today, organisations are increasingly prioritising innovation, agility, and flexibility in their product and service offerings, operational strategies, and workforce development programmes. As a result, all businesses must integrate digital product creation into their operations. Along with this desire for innovation, businesses face changing customer expectations, fluctuating global trade dynamics, cost restrictions, and labour shortages.

PLM Central uses PTC’s Creo Suite—the McAd industry-leading and modern technology—to collaborate directly with businesses to identify and meet their digital product development needs.

Creo Tools

Creo Parametric

Creo Parametric (formally known as Pro-Engineer) and its groundbreaking extensions are industry-standard 3D CAD design software. It’s a suite of design software that uses the power of artificial intelligence and generative design to enable customers to create, analyse, view, and share designs for manufacturing using 2D drawing as well as 3D modelling and digital mock-ups using the latest augmented reality technology.Find out more…

Creo Elements / Direct Modelling

Creo Elements/Direct Modeling is ideal for companies that develop one-off product designs (e.g., one-of-a-kind, new-to-market, or custom design-to-order products) and face rapidly changing requirements throughout the design cycle. Creo Elements/Direct Modeling enables you to make unexpected changes faster and more frequently. You are also able to make these changes later on in the design process. With Creo Element/Direct Modeling, any team member can pick up and work on a direct 3D product design in the same way that anyone can pick up and work on a Microsoft® Word® document. As a result, design responsibility is easily reassigned to different engineers, or even engineering teams, if previous engineers become unavailable during the course of a project. Find out more…

Creo Ansys powered products

ANSYS and PTC have partnered to accelerate product innovation by providing customers with best-in-class simulation-driven design solutions. PTC has integrated ANSYS’ Discovery Live technology into Creo to develop Creo Ansys powered products. This live Simulation provides design engineers instantaneous static structural, thermal and modal simulation; disrupting the traditional, time-intensive design process with instant-feedback through real-time simulation. With Creo Ansys powered products, you get instant feedback on your design decisions in your CAD environment as you work. You no longer have to guess at how your design might perform under real-world conditions. You iterate fast, incorporating as many design changes as you want, confident that you’ve made the best-informed decisions possible. Find out more..
