Creo Simulate, part of the whole Creo product family, is a dedicated structural, thermal and vibration analysis tool. What Creo Simulate does is take all of the best features that used to be locked away within the parametric modeling application and split them out into a robust, standalone analysis tool.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR USERS?
Essentially this means that you no longer need to go through all the complexities of learning a CAD tool, just to be able to access the power of the simulation application.
