Creo is a CAD software solution for product design processes from PTC Inc., based in Massachusetts. Among other things, it can be used to analyze initial ideas for concept development, create product designs and perform simulations, analyses and technical calculations. INNEO Solutions GmbH - based in Ellwangen, Germany, and the world’s largest partner of IoT market leader PTC - is at HANNOVER MESSE 2017 to showcase its complete range of products from product development and Industry 4.0, with the brand new Creo 4.0 3D CAD software as a highlight.
Development of Creo 4.0 focused in particular on increasing productivity for users. Introducing the new mini-toolbar has cut mouse movements significantly, for example. The availability of commands, depending on the application and selection made, keeps navigation via the user interface to the absolute minimum necessary. The combination of mini-toolbar and full screen mode also gives users a much clearer overview for designing in a more relaxed, productive process on the workspace, which has been increased in size by around 20 percent. Further enhancements in Creo 4.0 include the new cross hatching patterns in the *.pat (pattern file) format, thus enabling hatching for wood, insulating materials and concrete in 2D mode. The “intelligent mirror” function also detects identical geometries automatically.
