Direct 3D Modeling
Achieve faster design cycles, streamline CAE workflows and improve computer-aided manufacturing efficiency. Nothing has the potential to disrupt workflow like a late design change or the arrival of important models authored in other CAD systems. This may lead you to put aside plans for optimizing your design while you recreate that new model from scratch. Instead, use the direct modeling approach without leaving the parametric environment. The approach is a quick, lightweight, flexible design strategy. Click and use the drag-handle or enter a new numeric value if you want to modify geometry. Think of it as a strategy that speeds up the design process, saves money and prevents wasted time or potential problems.
Creo Elements - Direct Modeling
Creo Elements - Direct Drafting
Complete detailed design work, save it and open it in a 3D package to create an equally detailed 3D model. You can also choose to reuse 2D designs, work with legacy designs, use an assembly and more. Creo Elements/Direct Drafting offers comprehensive 2D CAD capabilities for optimizing your mechanical design processes. Drive the most complex design modifications by simply changing a dimension.
