What’s new in PTC Creo?

Usability and productivity

Creo 11 comes a wide variety of improvements to help make every day more productive. These include enhanced tools for managing, manipulating, and understanding CAD models, as well as a wide range of enhancements for electrification, composites, model-based definition (MBD), simulation-driven design, and both additive and subtractive manufacturing.

Creo 11 introduces exciting improvements to the tools you use daily

Creo 11 – Top enhancements

New features and functionality

Model-based definition
Simulation-driven design


Creo has improved cabling and ECAD-MCAD collaboration capabilities to power your circuitry and cabling designs

Cabling tools for manipulation of locations have been improved. Locations can now be placed tangent to any Coordinate System axis and the “Remove Locations” tool has been completely overhauled for easier use. Placement of custom components and splices has been enhanced, and harness settings can now be changed during routing. Additionally, the cabling tree has been updated for greater visibility of harness structure and cabling entities.

ECAD capabilities have also been extended with the addition of Transparency Control, for improved visibility of PCB stack-up and overlapping ECAD layers.

Design engineers are finding applications of composite materials in more products than ever, and Creo 11 continues to expand composites design, simulation, and manufacturing capabilities.

Creo has expanded functionality for transitions, laminate sections, and draping simulations. You can even use zone-based design to define and automatically build plies from zones. Manufacturing has been enhanced with extended ply boundaries, core sampling and the ability to export to leading laser projection systems.

Model-based definition

Creo now gives you even more powerful model-based definition tools to provide greater clarity with less effort. Now you can easily organize your design data in simple tables that can be read by humans and machines, with both user-defined text, parameter callouts, and semantic references.

Creating MBD annotations for cylindrical features is quicker, and semantic query is now available for inheritance models. GD&T Advisor has been updated to support ISO 22081 standard for general tolerances, for combined simplified hole callouts and enriched definition for slab and slot features.

Simulation driven design

Creo includes new simulation-driven design capabilities, for better design ideation, guidance, and validation. Creo’s award-winning generative design has been improved with minimum feature size constraints, bearing load support and planar symmetry constraints.

Creo Simulation Live now includes conjugate heat transfer to enable heat transfer between solid geometry and fluid bodies, as well as expanded results for all types of CSL studies. And Creo Ansys Simulation also has transient structure analysis, which is used to determine the dynamic response of a structure with a time-dependent load.

As always, Creo has improvements for both additive and subtractive manufacturing. For additive manufacturing, you can now connect two or more lattices with different cell types on a single continuous lattice structure and adjust pore size control for stochastic lattices. In addition, Creo has also expanded 3MF STL export options.

For subtractive manufacturing, High-Speed Milling now features 4-Axis rotary milling, plus trajectory milling enhancements. And 4-Axis area turning user interface has been improved, too.
