Creo 10 highlights
Productivity and ease of use
Thanks to PTC and Creo, you can get things done faster every year. Creo 10 is no exception, offering updates in areas such as multibody design, surface design, and model tree management.
- Creo 10 includes improvements to multibody design workflows, including a new split/trim feature and the ability to transfer color effects and references during Boolean operations.
- The stretch tool in Warp has been improved so that users can select a defined reference to stretch their model. Users can now select datum planes, points, axes, coordinate systems, surfaces, curves, or facets as references to stretch the model in the specified axis direction. The surface design tools “Freestyle” and “Style” have also been expanded to include rotational symmetry and smooth normal connections.
- The model tree has been improved to eliminate the possibility of confusion between restructuring and reordering an assembly.
- Creo's rich structuring capabilities have also been expanded to allow users to specify the number of pattern members for nested patterns.
Construction for electrification
Electrification is of great importance for many industries. Creo has improved its cable and harness design tools to help you create and manage cable harnesses.
- The Split/Merge Wire Harness tool can be used to split an existing wire harness into two separate wire harnesses that can later be merged again. This allows for easy reuse of subsystems and promotes collaboration by allowing multiple users to work on the same overall harness design.
- To improve the management of cables and wires in the model tree, a new application-oriented tree with three different views (cable, bundle and connectivity views) has been added.
- New ECAD functionality has been added, including paste masks and hole parameters, to provide better design and control over PCB design.
Designed for ergonomics
- The visual field functions can now perform a reflection analysis by selecting an object. The resulting surface cone represents the reflected field of view emanating from the selected object. Additionally, the orientation of the reflecting object can be controlled by adding a rotation value around one or two axes.
- Manikins now support multiple range variants. There is a range for the index finger, middle finger, thumb and the middle of the palm. The manikin libraries have been updated and are now stored as inseparable assemblies for easier management.
Model-based definition and digital thread
Creo 10 gives you powerful model-based definition tools that provide greater clarity with less effort.
- The latest MBD enhancements allow users to associate a symbol or surface finish with other annotations in the 3D model, with the annotation layer inherited from the parent layer during placement. With this tool, any movement of the associated parent annotation would also be applied to the associated symbol, and they would also behave as a group when assigned to other combination states. Additionally, users can learn about the nature of the relationship between related annotations by selecting one of them and observing the cross-highlighting of the other.
- GD&T Advisor has now been enhanced to improve the semantic behavior of general profile tolerances, support compliance with detailing standards, and increase usability. Model surfaces that are not otherwise constrained by GD&T annotations are automatically mapped as semantic references to the general profile tolerance.
Simulation and optimisation
Improve your products with advanced simulation-driven design tools. Creo Ansys Simulation Advanced, the newest addition to the Creo simulation offering, now gives you options you may never have considered.
- Support for nonlinear materials, including Neo-Hookean hyperplasticity, linear orthotropic elasticity, and bi-linear plasticity.
- Support for combined thermal and structural analysis.
- Support for nonlinear contacts, including new contact types such as friction and rough, is included.
- Creo Simulation Live now includes expanded contact simulation options and improved fluid and structure result options.
- Creo Flow Analysis and Creo Simulate have also been improved with better animations and multi-body support, respectively.
- With Creo 10, generative design continues to evolve with the addition of rotational symmetry and the ability to add point masses and remote loads.
Creo 10 offers enhancements to both additive and subtractive manufacturing so you can easily produce high-quality products.
- The latest features allow users to create several new bar-based grid types such as: E.g. rhombuses, rhombuses with diamond structure, dodecahedron and elongated dodecahedron. You also get support for cells with auxetic structures whose geometry has a negative Poisson's ratio.
- For formula-driven grids, Creo 10 supports simulation-based variable wall thicknesses and high-efficiency IWP (l-graph-wrapped) grid cells.
- High Speed Milling now supports hollow tools for 5-axis wall and floor finishing to shorten toolpaths and increase surface finish quality.
- Additional CUTCOM and Distance controls have been added to Area Rotate.
