After much anticipation, Creo 10 is finally here! The latest iteration builds on its rock-solid foundation, boasting further enhancements for superior handling and assessment of CAD models. In addition to usability and productivity improvements, Creo 10 is packed with fresh tools tailored to accelerate designers’ and engineers’ product delivery, such as:

  • Composite materials tools
  • Electrification design
  • Ergonomics design

It also includes upgrades to additive and subtractive manufacturing, simulation-driven design, and model-based definition capabilities.

Here’s what you need to know about the upgrades you’ll get when you buy Creo 10.

Creo 10 Upgrades

Usability and Productivity

With this new release, Creo 10 adds numerous usability enhancements designed to boost the daily productivity of engineers. Specifically, PTC has enhanced Creo’s multibody features with Boolean and Split operations, plus reordering and restructuring assembly tools. Significant improvements have been made to divide surface, holes, sketcher, surface, and freestyle part modeling tools.

Simulation-Driven Design

Creo 10 continues to build on the simulation-driven initiative with upgrades to Creo Simulation Live, Creo Flow Analysis, Creo Simulate, and Generative Design Extension. Plus, an all-new Creo Ansys Simulation Advanced Extension, which includes nonlinear contact and materials combined with thermal and structural analysis.

Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing

Beam-based and formula-driven lattices are now available for additive manufacturing, with high-speed milling tools available for traditional subtractive manufacturing. These new tools can support the development of medical devices by incorporating the energy absorption of auxetic cells.

Model-Based Definition (MBD)

Creo has included MBD tools for a long time. And now, Creo 10 offers significant upgrades to annotations tools for enhanced usability and productivity—while also making it easy to meet compliance standards.

New Tools in Creo 10

Composite Materials Tools

With Creo 10, you can design with composite materials to create strong but lightweight products. The new ply tools allow for ply definition, flat ply contours, and automated ply book generation, and upgrades to lamination tools make it easy to manage all aspects of the lamination process. With these advanced features you can:

  • Design plies and cores
  • Simulate draping and composite structures for analysis
  • Manufacture drape and flat patterns

Electrification Design

Electrification is being integrated into products more and more. Creo 10 now includes a dedicated label tree and improved design tools for routed systems to create, manage, and harness assemblies. The specialized Split/Merge Harness tool makes it incredibly simple to collaborate and reuse sub-harness assemblies as needed. In addition, ECAD capabilities have also been improved by importing past masks and handling ECAD hole parameters for enhanced integration, collaboration, and visibility of PCBs in MCAD design.

Ergonomic Design

Human use must be considered for every product—and humans come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. New ergonomic capabilities allow you to account for various movements, fields of vision, and differences between user type.
