Creo Elements/Direct 18.1– the latest release of PTC’s awardwinning 2D and 3D CAD, CAE and product data management (PDM) software solution–brings new levels of design flexibility to direct modeling teams a new Creo-style ribbon user interface further lowers the learning curve for new users. Plus new 2D and 3D modification capabilities optimize the design workflow for expert users. And, interoperability with Creo apps extends design possibilities to ensure great product designs that customers demand. All of this results in shorter design cycles and improved team-wide productivity.
Want to know what’s new? Check out the 10 reasons to Creo Elements/Direct 18.1 today:
1. Intuitive user interface and interaction
A new, easy-to-learn and easy-to-use Creo-style ribbon-UI for Modeling, Drafting and Model Manager lowers the learning curve for new users. The UI is fully interactively customizable by the end user.
2. Streamlined context-sensitive command interaction
Context-sensitive command controls introduce familiar object-action conceptsin Drafting.
3. Mini-Toolbar extensions
Mini-Toolbar extensions in Creo Elements/Direct Modeling add another level of convenience for 3D designers. The Command Mini-Toolbar (CMT) has additional entries, is end-user customizable, and available without a preselected item. Additionally, the Option Mini Toolbars now allow multiple interactions.
4. New Stretch Edge command
A new capability to move 3D edges or to change the radius or diameter of a circular edge, while adjusting the neighboring faces, provides highly efficient modification possibilities.
5. Control of solution alternatives in Move 3D
Intuitive control of solution alternatives in Move 3D indicates the existence of more than one possible solution in a given modification situation, thus providing more modeling power with fewer clicks.
