Automatically Optimize Designs for Shape and Material Usage

Let Creo complete tedious parametric optimization for you. Users can define design loads, regions, and constraints the extension automatically optimizes the parametric geometry based on your design criteria, goals, and objectives.

The Creo Topology Optimization Extension automates portions of the design process, so you can spend more time designing and less time optimizing “dumb” geometry. The extension allows users to set design criteria, goals, and objectives so the software can do the rest. The result is a parametric CAD geometry that meets your specified conditions.


  • Speed up time-to-market
  • Cut costs
  • Accelerate new product introductions
  • Increase innovation
  • Easy to use


  • Utilizes familiar Creo UI
  • Fast optimization setup
  • Quickly convert results into CAD data
  • Define manufacturing constraints for additive and traditional manufacturing processes
  • Structural, modal, and thermal analysis

Topology Optimization Process

Completing a topology optimization analysis is simple:

  1. Model setup: prepping the model
    1. Select loads
    2. Select constraints
    3. Define region
    4. Select material
    5. Create analysis
  2. Optimization setup: what will be used to come up with the refined shape
    1. Topology region: manufacturing and fabrication constraints
    2. Design objective: what you want the analysis to do
    3. Design constraints: different characteristics to take into consideration (i.e. reduce mass by 30%)
  3. Mesh Model
  4. Create Study
  5. Results
    1. Displays the difference between your original design and optimized design
    2. Can be converted into rich CAD data for sharing or additional analysis
    3. Explore the fill contour and displacements

Two Extension Options: Standard and Plus

Creo Topology Optimization

The traditional extension allows users to complete up to 3 analyses for a specific design objective or design constraint. It supports structural and modal analysis and the following fabrication constraints:

  • Symmetry
  • Cyclic symmetry
  • Extrusion
  • Filling

Creo Topology Optimization Plus

This advanced extension includes all the features as the traditional Creo Topology Optimization Extension but allows unlimited analyses and supports thermal analysis. In addition, you can select a wider variety of constraints including:

  • Symmetry
  • Cyclic symmetry
  • Extrusion
  • Filling
  • Stamping
  • Uniform
  • Filling symmetrically
  • Radial filling
  • Radial spokes
  • Periodic
