Commentaires: Iam a mechanical engineering student and a PTC certified CREO user I have learned this software and got a certificate from PTC CREO after passing their examination. So I normally use this software for my college works making CAD drawings for my projects, works, seminars etc. It's easy for me to use it as iam qualified. I would recommend this software to other professionals out there and to the beginners under one condition that they should learn it from a certified place and then they use it, which would really help them enjoy this software instead of getting confused or telling that this software is tough and it's crap.

Avantages: The main advantages are:
1. It's easy to work with.
2. There a lot of options for our views to accomplish
3. A complete product can be build assembled and put to test in the software itself before making the prototype with the appropriate factors given as input.
4. It's been used by a lot of companies like KTM Duke was entirely built in this software so learning this software helps you out in different ways
5. Even some extent of analysis can be done also in the software itself
6. It's a powerful software well built with less bugs and hence I grand never come across crashing of this software no matter how much inputs use give.
7. For professionals it's a best choice.

Inconvénients: The main disadvantages are:
1. It doesn't work on low end systems it becomes slow as it requires minimum 4gb graphics for the program to run smoothly without much load.
2. It's tough to learn you might need a proper guidance to learn it and once you learn it, then you would rule it.
3. It's a bit costly but if you running a company then it's good but not good to buy for personnel use
4. Surely not meant for beginners it's a software that's a high performance one and so it's tough
5. Sometimes the options would get you confused as you work on because there's that much options present.
6. Try to keep in touch atleast once in a month with the software or you might end in forgetting hope to use this software or make sure that you got a book written how to use this software on your own.

CAD for people who like doing things the hard way.

Commentaires: If you are looking for a stable software with built in version control this is the package for you. If you are easily frustrated by non-intuitive software you are probably better off with Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks.

Avantages: By far the most stable CAD application I have ever used. Over the past decade I can count the number of times it has crashed on one hand. Takes a while to understand how to make in context part references, but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to make very complex and stable CAD models. The file versioning takes some getting used to, but is basically built in safety net. Every time a file is saved it creates a new version of that file. You can roll back to previous file versions very easily.

Inconvénients: The drawing environment needs some work. The bills of materials are not as versatile as other software I have used, Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks have a leg up in this area. In all my time using it I have never stumbled across features that let me make exploded views of an assembly.

Creo View is a complicated software eventhough its capabilities are limited.

Commentaires: The software, when you consider it overall, an exceptional one in terms of its capabilities. And from the Creo View sub module I get the impression that it is good to create a simple working part for each design which only targets a specific duty. So it improves my modular design experience

Avantages: The system that Creo implement to its products is very beneficial, they create a submodule for each specific task and Creo View is one of them. This creates an opportunity to make more emphasized softwares and it provides a productive working environment.

Inconvénients: The overall interface is a little bit problematic and hard to use and it leads a little bit confusion for starters.

Avantages: The software is very powerful if you can figure out how to use it correctly.

Inconvénients: The software is very hard to use. There is nothing intuitive about how to model using Creo. The functions are hard to find and to use. Half the time, you don't know what input the software is looking for. I personally do not care for the layers.

Very powerful but other packages may offer better value

Commentaires: Overall a very powerful tool with many options (prepare to open your checkbook). There are other packages that might suit basic needs of most companies (i.e. Solidworks or Autodesk)

Avantages: The modeling and assembly power is very good. The surfacing is ok. Pro-e/Creo handles large assemblies very well.

Inconvénients: The drafting package. Ugh. Its terrible.

Avantages: My college uses Creo to teach us CAD. Since then I have worked with other CAD softwares and I have to say Creo was the most powerful of them all. It offers great range of tools to make your designs look amazing and the render option beats it all. It offer much more than any CAD software including assemblies, drawing files but most importantly NC manufacture and mold and cavity manufacture. You can generate CL files for 4th and 5th axis milling.

Inconvénients: It takes a while to explore all the best options to optimize your drawings and it's ot easy to use at first. The default template is always imperial and requires changing to metric.

One of Nice 3D software for basic 3D modeling having some nice advance features also.

Commentaires: I have done programming and automation work through this software for interactive development in the classroom.

Avantages: The generation of an MCAD file which allows generating a sequence of steps that can be programmed for the simulation of the mechanical design made, in addition to its incursion in the electrical design.

Inconvénients: That the electric design tool is not very developed, it should be interactive like the mechanics module, it should also offer different packages with different costs that adapt to the budgets of different users.

Creo is fabulous software for 2D and 3D CAD modelling.

Avantages: I have been using this software for a long time. It is splendid software indeed. When we are working on CAD work, it is very easy to navigate. One of the most beautiful feature of this software is assembling parts together. We can share 3D models, view drawings and make notes through this software very speedily.

Inconvénients: The only limitation of this software is that it's layout seems to be quite difficult but once we have command on this software then we get familiar with it and it is easy to understand the concept. As it is versatile so it takes some time to learn as compare to other CAD software. It only needs practice to have good command on it. It's learning curve is quite steeper.

A speedy solution

Avantages: Extensive functionality, a user-friendly learning curve, and a simple design make creo a great choice for anyone looking to explore CAD more. I appreciate that I don't have to buy any expensive equipment in order to be able to simply view these files (other programs I use require that you buy special mouses in order to properly view the files, but Creo can be used entirely with a standard keyboard mouse.

Inconvénients: I'm not sure if it's just me, but for some reason, my wire drawings sometimes make the program crash and this can be very distracting / infuriating. Still, it has only happened on rare occasions and I'd like to chalk it up to my work-space being old.

Commentaires: This product has helped me create several fixtures for our company.

Avantages: This software is very easy to use. Prior to using this software I had only used AutoCAD 3ds. This was a breeze to learn and quickly was able to transition to this software. The ability to then create a print directly from the model makes this a winner for me.

Inconvénients: There are. A few limitations on features. My main issue was not being able to create a helical extrusion. But I was able to work around it by lofting.

Avantages: It is easy to navigate while working on CAD work. The view is really easy to work with once you understand the concept.

Inconvénients: References could be a nightmare when you have to update the geometry several layers after. Need some used to.

Commentaires: Learnt the very basics of Solid Modeling using this software

Avantages: Probably the most powerful CAD software out there with the ability to model anything and everything. Allows the user to become an expert in design using CAD.

Inconvénients: Although it is versatile, it takes some time to learn unlike other CAD software - the functions available are not in plain sight to the user. It requires practice to get used to.

great software for 2D and 3D CAD modelling..

Avantages: The software allows me to open parts and assemblies from windchill. Its a quick way to get a look at the part you'll be using in a design or getting a quick measurement of the part.

Inconvénients: The interface can be a bit hard to navigate, but i don't use it as much as a mechanical engineers would.

Commentaires: I thought it was great for making presentations to groups on projects I am currently working on.

Avantages: I really like the ease of assembling parts together. I also like how parts can be labeled to help in presenting or explaining what certain things do.

Inconvénients: The one thing that I have a hard time with is that there are so many features that it took a while find all of the ones that I think are useful and learn how to use them.

Commentaires: The usability of the software is very much engineering process based and applying features is very smooth and it gives the notifications every time you make something beyond the reality. The main reason i like this program is just because it seems it has its own brain that suggests you and prevents you to do as per the universal law. And that makes the design manufacturable. The disadvantage i think is its not for kids to play like game. its only engineering design tool.
PTC should add the capability of mechanical animation like we work in MAYA and 3DMAX.

Creo View Express is a great little viewing program for your 2D drawings and 3D solid models.

Commentaires: It's a nice, free tool that allows our non-engineers view drawings and models and make notes about them.

Avantages: It's a great program for viewing 2D drawings and 3D models. It's free, so non-engineers can use it without having to have an expensive seat of Creo, and it also allows them to make notes for the engineers.

Inconvénients: It would always be nice to have more features, but it's a free program, so you get what you pay for.
