The optimal way to jumpstart your business

Starting a new business is an exciting and challenging time – you need to be prepared to invest in an idea and follow through with a plan. Part of that plan is choosing the right people and the right tools to make your dream come to life.

Choosing the right CAD package

The design is arguably the most crucial factor in creating an unbeatable product, which means that choosing the CAD package you will work with should be done after careful consideration.

We think that PTC Creo has all the key features required for your business and product to flourish:

  1. Parametric – it keeps your design neat and organized and allows you to create a CAD model that is super easy to alter, so you can come back again and again and try new variations with just a few clicks.
  2. Plenty of add-ons: Creo Parametric is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the solutions offered by PTC Creo. As your business grows and matures, you might discover you want to do FEA, or Advanced Assemblies, or perhaps Mold Designs – whatever it is, we’ve got you covered.
  3. User-Friendly Interface, so you can pick it up quickly and find your way around from the start.
  4. Support is there if you need it, either as Telephone or as Online Support, where you can get help with any technical issue you have with your software.

Because you need all the help you can get at the start of your business journey, PTC has created the following program:

PTC Creators Program – Software for Start-ups

You get to try all the tools in Creo’s suite of add-ons at a fraction of the price so you can successfully develop product designs without worrying about software limitations.

What’s included:

PTC Creo capabilities with apps and extensions
From the core capabilities in PTC Creo to apps/extensions such as Ansys-powered simulation, additive manufacturing, generative design and smart connected design.

Join the PTC Creators Program today and leverage Creo for your designs, starting at a significant discount from commercial pricing for up to 3 years.

Eligibility criteria apply, please get in touch with PDSVISION for more information.
