Creo Parametric Extensions

Customise Creo Parametric for your special requirements and optimise your design processes!

3D CAE extensions – The right tools for the right analysis

Enable faster, better design decisions with Creo’s analysis capabilities. Simulation early and often in the design process reduces costly physical prototyping, and increases product durability, reliability, and safety. Creo CAE extensions seamlessly integrate CAD and CAE with the right analysis and simulation tools for your needs.

Creo Simulation Live – Better and faster designs – with real-time feedback

Perform structural, modal and thermal analyses directly within Creo Parametric

With Creo Simulation Live engineers can analyse their designs in real-time directly within the Creo Parametric using ANSYS’ Discovery Live technology. Structural, modal and thermal live analyses are supported.

Creo users can see the results instantly in the common Creo modeling environment with real-time feedback on changes and make the right design decisions as they design.

Creo Simulation & Advanced Simulation Extension – Investigate structural and thermal product performance

The sooner, the better: quick and easy FEA analysis

The Creo Simulation Extensions give designers the power to understand structural and thermal product performance ‘on the desktop’, before resorting to costly, timeconsuming physical prototyping. By gaining early insight into product behavior, you can vastly improve product quality while saving time, effort and money as design engineers can better understand product performance, and accommodate the digital design accordingly.

Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension – Automatically determine the best design variant
Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension iteration goals
Engineering goals for design iteration in Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension

Wouldn’t it be great if your CAD software automatically determined the best design for you? Think of the time and effort you’d save. That’s exactly what Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension does for you – with design studies, smart models that “know” their purpose and act accordingly as well as an open environment to integrate external calculation programmes.

You simply define your engineering goals and define where your design is flexible. Creo BMX automatically analyses countless iterations before arriving at the best solution.
