PTC Creo 3.0 is now here. But what does this new release mean for designers and engineers? As the latest release of Creo continues to deliver greater power and more flexibility to support the acceleration of the product development process, we evaluate some of the headline benefits of this new release.
UNITE TECHNOLOGY – WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT ACHIEVE?
With the introduction of Unite Technology in this release, there is an increased focus on helping you work more effectively with data from multiple CAD sources. Unite addresses the challenge of data migration, with the ability to easily import or open non PTC Creo files. This will enable organisations to consolidate onto a single CAD platform. In Creo 3.0, users can simply convert data when they need it. To enhance collaboration with any product development partners, Unite Technology provides the means to easily incorporate non-Creo data into your designs, without creating new CAD files to manage. This powerful, industry exclusive set of capabilities enables you to create and maintain design intent between Creo and non-Creo data throughout the product development process.
