For a designer, having both parametric and direct modeling capabilities in a single tool is ideal, but of the solutions currently available, only PTC Creo and Siemens NX have both. If this is something you need, your choices are limited, so to save you some time, we’ve done a comparison of key features of the two. […]
Productivity during the design process can make the difference between being first to market or becoming an also-ran. That makes your choice of product lifecycle management of critical importance, not just to the engineering team but to the entire company. […]
Organizations understand how important it is to capitalize on market opportunities. This is crucial if companies want to stay competitive and relevant. According to a report from Aberdeen, 29 percent of executives have identified capitalizing on marketing opportunities as a top priority to improve their product development. […]
As a PTC reseller, we regularly receive inquiries asking about how our products compare to other CAD solutions. Obviously, we are a little biased but since we have a close relationship with our products and a strong understanding of the other solutions out there, we want to share our opinion on this common question. […]
Throughout history, there has been a variety of methods used to manufacture custom parts. Today, the most common methods used are 3D printing and CNC machine. Both utilize computer numerical control (CNC), which developed from traditional milling methods after WWII. While 3D printing has some major breakthroughs in the last few years, CNC machine is […]
SolidWorks vs. PTC Creo
We often get asked about the differences between SolidWorks and PTC Creo. In fact, it’s one of the top questions we get from customers and prospects.
As a PTC reseller, we’re obviously biased, but we’ve been around since 2001 and have worked with every CAD product on the market so I think we […]
There are a lot of different editions of Creo available. This gives our customers the ability to customize Creo to perfectly fit the needs of their team without paying for extra features or functionality they don’t need.
However, we know it can get a little confusing.
It’s no secret that there are quite a few options out there for engineers who need professional grade 3D CAD programs. One of the biggest Creo/Pro ENGINEER competitors we hear about is SolidWorks.
Engineers who choose Creo over competitors like Solidworks have a significant advantage when facing complex design challenges. Instead of having a one-size-fits-all […]
