3D Industrial Design

Easily achieve complex curves, compelling renderings and the smoothest of high-quality surfaces. Just start with Creo Parametric. Go on to use the freestyle design capabilities to do rapid freeform surfacing and attach the surface to your parametric model. Take advantage of Creo Parametric’s technical surfacing capabilities or choose to use extensions for advanced surfacing and rendering. Use Augmented Reality (AR) to share your design with stakeholders anywhere in the world. Create the experience and send a link to team members to visualize your work against a real-world backdrop.


Complex Surface Design & Visualization

Tools for the aesthetic, non-mechanical aspects of a product

Creo Parametric
Create precise geometry regardless of a model’s complexity with real-time collision and interference capabilities. Powerful surface creation capabilities built into the Creo Parametric base package.

Interactive (Freestyle) Surface Design Extension (ISDX)
Looks are everything in the industrial design world. Surfacing is about creating the product’s look by defining its shape and any surface that can be seen or touched.

Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX)
Directly edit native and multi-CAD geometry data from inside of Creo without parametric constraints. Now included in the base Creo Parametric package.

Reverse Engineering
Create, or recreate, the electronic 3D CAD model of your physical product.

Render Studio
Whether you need a photorealistic depiction for a design review, marketing collateral, or packaging: Creo Render Studio makes it easy.

Augmented Reality
Transform the way you create, operate and service products with Augmented Reality.


Plastic Part Design & Manufacturing

Capabilities specifically for design with plastic

Expert Moldbase Extension (EMX)
Create moldbase layouts in a familiar 2D environment and automatically generate a 3D model to get the benefits of 3D design.

Mold Analysis Extension (MAX)
Get reliable and easy-to-understand analysis data. Use powerful simulation capabilities to see how the mold will function when the molten plastic is poured in, use color-coded analysis to see where material is flowing, make changes in the material or mold and rerun tests for instant results.

Tool Design Extension (TDX)
TDX steps you through the process of creating various molds with ease, giving feedback and advice on the design. Attain a quicker, cheaper path to successful design of complex tooling.

Complete Machining Extensions (TDX + EMX)
The precision removal of material in machining needs tight control and zero mistakes. Designed for specialized mold assembly creation.

Additive Manufacturing Extension (AMX)
What you design is actually what you print. Design, optimize, validate and run a print-check all in one environment.

Complex Surface Design & Visualization

Render Studio

Easily produce eye-catching renderings and animations. Render Studio is fully integrated with Creo Parametric, so you can move between rendering and modeling modes without the need to exit the rendering application. With real-time ray-tracing, you can leverage existing scenes and appearances for your designs without waiting.

Parametric Surface Design

Use sweeps, blends, offsets and other features to create complex surfaces. Parametric Surface Design allows you to trim or extend surfaces and perform surface operations like copy, merge, extend and transform. Inspect, validate and verify the quality of your design in order to give your model advanced surface styling without any hard labor.

Interactive (Freestyle) Surface Design

Interactive Surface Design offers freeform modeling and surface creation capabilities in Creo Parametric. Freestyle design is like modeling with clay.  With Freestyle, you begin with a primitive shape and use the 3D dragger to push, pull and shape. Freestyle can automatically create curvature and stunning surfaces to fit your requirements.

Augmented Reality

Use augmented reality to deliver digital product experiences to your customers. AR reduces the cost of marketing and sales logistics, shortens sales cycles and immerses customers to set you apart from the competition. Augmented reality offers business value across a wide range of use cases, from reducing costs and accelerating pipeline, to unlocking new revenue streams.

Flexible Modeling

Adding flexible modeling capabilities to Creo allows you to improve product design process by handling late changes more seamlessly, evolving concept designs faster, and directly editing multi-CAD data from others.  Flexible Modeling Extension is now included in the base Creo Parametric package, allowing you to use both Parametric and Direct Modeling in the same model.

Reverse Engineering Extension

With Creo Reverse Engineering Extension (REX), you can create – or recreate – electronic 3D CAD models of your products without spending excess time, effort or money. Reverse Engineering allows you to design new, innovative products to succeed in today's competitive product environment and preserve design intent. Using REX, you can get it right the first time. 

Plastic Part Design & Manufacturing

Expert Moldbase Extension (EMX)

Creo EMX is an add-on tool that eliminates time consuming, tedious tasks and the need for data translation. EMX allows users to create moldbase layouts in a familiar 2D environment and automatically generate a 3D model to leverage the benefits of 3D design and increases design speed.

Mold Analysis Extension (MAX)

Creo MAX provides you with reliable, easy-to-understand analysis data. Powerful simulation capabilities show you just how the mold will function when the molten plastic is poured in. Efficiently simulate the injection molding of plastic parts and perform analyses such as moldability, sink mark and weld line.

Tool Design Extension (TDX)

Creo Tooling Design Extension (TDX) helps create parting lines, design parting surfaces, check mold lock conditions and create solid molding parts. Use TDX to evaluate mold draft, detect undercut or thickness problems, reduce the need for redesigns and automatically create parting surface and splitting geometry.

Complete Machining Extension

Complete Machining Extension includes Expert Moldabase and Tool Design Extensions. Access tools for multi-axis machining, extensive tool libraries, proven manufacturing templates, and 2- to 4-axis wire EDM. Develop machined products like a pro, from design to production, with Complete Machining.

Additive Manufacturing

Creo closes the gap between 3D CAD and 3D printing. What you design is actually what you print. You can now you can design, optimize, validate and run a print-check all in one environment. Build better products faster by accelerating product innovation, reusing the best of your design and replacing assumptions with facts.
