It’s no secret that there are quite a few options out there for engineers who need professional grade 3D CAD programs. One of the biggest Creo/Pro ENGINEER competitors we hear about is SolidWorks.
Engineers who choose Creo over competitors like Solidworks have a significant advantage when facing complex design challenges. Instead of having a one-size-fits-all solution to design issues, Creo allows users to change their methodology to suit the requirements of the task at hand.
Flexibility: Advantage Creo
Creo offers a complete range of fully integrated modeling paradigms, including both 3D direct and 3D parametric. Creo Direct offers speed and simplicity when editing designs. With Creo Parametric, precision and attention to detail are optimized to meet exacting modeling requirements.
Creo allows users to switch back and forth between Direct and Parametric formats—a unique advantage of PTC’s Creo suite of CAD software.
