Key Information

PTC Creo - The Industry’s Leading 3D CAD Software

Creo Software, formerly known as Pro/ENGINEER (ProE), has been at the cutting-edge of CAD for more than 30 years.

With the Creo product design and development software suite, you can take your product from concept to digital prototype and do so with efficiency, accuracy and a measure of grace.


From the comprehensive capabilities of Creo Parametric to applications specializing in direct modeling, Creo has what you need. Whether you need speed and flexibility to meet a deadline, or are in the initial stages of concept design, direct modeling lets you work with geometry quickly and easily.


Easily create 2D schematic designs and documentation for piping, cabling, and harnesses, and then use them to drive the associated 3D CAD models.

Simulation and Analysis

Simulate early and often with software that’s easy to set up, use, and run. Use digital prototypes to understand how your design performs in real world conditions.


Now colleagues can see your design in the file format that suits them, so design reviews are more productive and data can be reused. Fewer, better prototypes mean faster design cycles and more money in your budget.

Smart Connected Design

Replace design assumptions with facts thanks to IoT. Use real-world product data in your CAD designs.

Model-Based Definition (MBD)

Embed all the necessary product manufacturing information directly in your 3D CAD models.

The PTC Creo suite of products is used by thousands of companies around the world, from some of the smallest to some of the largest.
