We’ve written a lot about PTC Creo Simulate in this blog lately because it’s a great tool for conducting structural, thermal, and vibration analysis of your 3D CAD models. As an extension of PTC Creo Parametric, it provides a comprehensive set of finite element analysis capabilities. However, it’s not the only simulation or analysis extension available for PTC Creo users.
In fact, there are seven more options that can help you understand how your model will perform under various conditions. Will your plastic part stand up to injection molding? Are your electromechanical components safe in real-world conditions? What happens when a human tries to work next to this conveyor? There’s a lot you may need to know to craft a great product design.
If you’re ready to go beyond PTC Creo Simulate, browse the list below to see what else you could be using to get the best from your 3D models.
