Pro/Engineer Wildfire is now PTC Creo

The software package that was previously sold as Pro/Engineer Wildfire is now called PTC Creo Parametric, a full suite of 2D and 3D CAD software.

Unsure as to why you should upgrade from Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire (Pro/E) to Creo?

Here’s a few good reasons:

  • New “Unite Technology” reads and writes to other common CAD formats… allowing you to consolidate to a single CAD application.
  • Compatible applications like Creo Direct makes for fast and easy design exploration.
  • Now its third major release Creo is stable and powerful.
  • New pricing options like subscription pricing make it easier (and cheaper) than ever to upgrade to Creo.
