What is Computer-Aided Design (CAD)?

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is a way to digitally create 2D drawings and 3D models of real-world products – before a prototype has even been manufactured. With 3D CAD, you can simulate, modify, share and review, designs easily. This will open doors to innovation and create competitive products that get to the market fast.  We at PLM Central’s offer the world-class PTC Creo suite to meet your Computer-Aided Design specifications – it’s the design software with solutions to meet a variety of customer needs.

What is Digital Product Development?

Digital product development is the creation and management of a detailed digital procedure before the manufacturing of the physical product – from new product ideas all the way through to design. Companies are now becoming more innovative, agile and adaptive with their product and service offerings, operations and workforce development, making digital product development is a business necessity for all enterprises. Parallel to this innovation, companies are also facing shifting customer expectations, uncertain global trade and cost pressures, as well as workforce shortages. PLM Central utilises the PTC’s Creo Suite to work hand in hand with companies in order to define 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 Softwares. It’s a suite of design software’s 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.

Creo Elements / Direct Modelling

Creo Elements/Direct Modelling 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 Modelling 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 Modelling, 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 when 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..
