Creo 9 is full of productivity and usability enhancements to help you deliver your best designs in less time. There are new tools for managing, manipulating and understanding CAD models. Creo 9 continues to enhance tools for ergonomics, Model-Based Definition (MBD), simulation, generative design, and additive / subtractive manufacturing.
Usability and productivity
New customer-driven usability and productivity enhancements will help streamline your daily work. Model tree management has never been easier, and a new divided surfaces function allows for even better analysis and definition. Sketcher, multibody, Freestyle and ECAD have all been improved to simplify and speed up your everyday work.
Model-based definition (MBD) and detailing improvements
Enhanced digital product definition tools help you advance your MBD and detailing activities. Semantic PMI and symbols are compliant with the latest ASME/ISO standards, providing more information for downstream users. New weld symbols and drawing hatch patterns make detailing easier. These powerful MBD tools help you provide greater clarity with less effort.
Ergonomic design, Manikin, and vision
Your team will appreciate the enhancements to ergonomics design and vision analysis tools. Now you can customize Manikin dimensions, with easier manipulation of Manikin position. There are even new tools available to analyze Manikin sight and field of view. These customer-driven enhancements make it easy for you deliver better product solutions.
Improve your products with enhanced simulation and generative design tools. Creo Simulation Live adds multi-physics analysis, so you can simulate structural and thermal performance simultaneously. Creo Ansys Simulation and Creo Flow Analysis are more powerful and easier to use. And you can now use generative design with safety factor and modal optimization, to achieve the desired frequency response of the specified material.
Advances in additive and subtractive manufacturing
There are valuable CAM improvements, for both additive and traditional manufacturing. In additive manufacturing, you will find improvements to stochastic and user-defined lattices as well as support structures. Updates to subtractive manufacturing include enhancements in 5-axis finishing toolpaths, turning, and mold development, as well as adaptive feed rates for milling. These improvements make it easier for you to deliver high-quality, manufacturable products.
