How can PTC Creo Elements/Direct Drafting help your team?

  • Easier to standardize product development and manufacturing processes by organizing 2D design elements into a structure of parts and assemblies rather than layers.
  • Improved speed and accuracy by automating 2D design tasks by creating and modifying designs using intuitive visual snap points, lines, and handles.
  • Easier to compare drawing revisions by clearly marking additions, deletions, and changes.
  • Manual or automatic dimensioning of part and assembly features according to international and company-specific standards.
  • Import and export of files in Autodesk DWG and DXF as well as 2D IGES format.
