According to a PTC study, companies use an average of 2.7 CAD systems on a regular basis. And beyond that, you have to worry about customers, your supply chain, and legacy CAD systems that hold old designs. And odds are, everyone is using a different CAD system. This all means CAD data needs to be recreated, leading to translation problems and easy loss of original design intent.
Through Creo and its subsidiary products, PTC enables designers and other users to overcome these compatibility issues. Creo Parametric allows users to import any 3D CAD model and edit its geometry directly.
Check out these video demos to see how engineers and design teams use Creo to handle their compatibility needs:
