PTC Creo has extensive simulation capabilities, enabling designers to analyse both parts and assemblies. It means you can investigate the structural, thermal and motional behaviour of your designs under real-life conditions. To begin your analysis, Creo provides you with an easy to follow process, which include an intuitive user interface.
Now, to help you get started, here are 6 things you need to know about simulation with PTC Creo.
#1 IT’S QUICK AND EASY TO GET STARTED
Say you are testing a wheel assembly, you can quickly and easily apply loads to it, to reflect the range of motion the wheel would experience if it hit an obstacle in the road. Being able to complete the analysis on this is simple. While the simulation is running, you can see visual feedback. This enables you to confirm that the loads have been properly applied to the assembly.
