PTC Creo Simulate offers extensive simulation capabilities. These allow design engineers to analyse both parts and assemblies. This means that you can fully investigate the structural, thermal and motion behaviour of your designs under real-life circumstances.
The process of analysing parts and models is made easy, with an intuitive user interface. For example, if you’re designing a steering assembly, you can quickly apply loads to reflect the range of motions that the wheel would experience after hitting an obstacle in the road. Then, completing the necessary analysis is straightforward. Additionally, while the simulation is running, visual feedback is provided. This helps you to validate that the loads have been properly applied.
