Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Improve product design by simulating complex thermal and structural problems before prototyping. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the practical application of a mathematical method to model complex structural and thermal problems. FEA enables simulation and it is especially useful for structural and thermal analysis. Computed FEA results allow you to optimize your designs by making changes and then easily re-running the various analyses. Incorporating simulation software early in the design process will help reduce the need for costly prototypes and late-stage design changes. It will also improve product performance, longevity, reliability and safety.

Creo Simulation Live!

Your 3D CAD software can now provide you with real-time feedback on your designs decisions, reacting to changes as you make them. Creo Simulation Live provides guidance on thousands of decisions you make throughout the development process. Define a few simple conditions and the software will work in the background to give you instantaneous and dynamic feedback.

Creo Simulate

Creo Simulate gives you the power to evaluate structural and thermal product performance on your digital model, before any physical prototyping. When you have early insight into product behavior, you can greatly improve product quality while saving time, effort and money. It is available as a standalone application or as an extension of Creo Parametric.

Creo Advanced Simulation

Advanced Simulation Extension expands the capabilities of Creo Simulate. It shows how advanced, nonlinear effects influence product design. Both programs have the same user interface, workflow and productivity tools. The combination of Creo Simulate and Advanced Simulation can be used as a standalone application or as an extension.

Human Factors Analysis

Visualize, simulate, optimize and communicate human-product interactions early in the design process. A designer can add a 3D digital human model that provides an accurate representation of human physical characteristics (like shape, size, comfort and strength) to their 3D CAD product model.

Fatigue Analysis

Creo Fatigue Advisor Extension enables you to bolster product reliability by simulating and improving the fatigue performance of your design. Improve product quality, reduce after-market service and warranty expenses, avoid costly product recalls and prevent negative impact on your brand.

Behavioral Modeling

BMX delivers three key capabilities: design studies, smart models and an open environment that uses calculated results from external programs. It determines the best design for you, supports design optimization and raises the level of design automation from simple geometry creation to a fully engineered solution.

Creepage & Clearance Analysis

Creepage & Clearance Analysis (CCX) helps you automate electrical clearance and creepage analyses of 3D designs. Automate the analysis directly on the digital model, get visual feedback, clearly identify product safety issues, optimize your electromechanical detailed design process and easily investigate violations.

Tolerance Analysis

Creo Tolerance Analysis Extension (TAE) gives you powerful tolerance analysis capabilities within your design environment. Analyze, visualize and understand the geometric tolerance and dimensional variation that impacts designs. Simple, powerful tolerance analysis capabilities are now integrated directly into Creo.

Mechanism Design (Motion Analysis)

Creo Mechanism Dynamics Option (MDO) gives you extended capabilities to design and test mechanisms under real-world stresses. You can simulate the forces and accelerations in the moving components of assemblies and also incorporate influences such as springs, motors, friction and gravity.
