  • 1. Concurrent Engineering Whitepaper:Upgrade to CreoParametric 2.0: 12 reasonsto make the transition fromPro/ENGINEERConcurrent Engineering White Paper, April 2012Page 1 of 4
  • 2. What is Creo Parametric 2.0?Creo Parametric 2.0 is the very latest in 3D parametric modellingtechnology. It draws on the established features of Pro/ENGINEER®,CoCreate®, and ProductView®, as well as hundreds of updatesmade as part of the Creo 2.0 launch. The increased capabilities ofCreo Parametric 2.0 allow users to release their design potential, fora more productive and focused design process. Balancing ease-of-use with its powerful abilities ensures Creo Parametric 2.0 makes forinstinctive yet effective usability. Discover for yourself the 12 keyreasons you should make the transition from Pro/ENGINEER andupgrade to Creo Parametric 2.01. Increased design capacityThe release of Creo Parametric 2.0 means there are now over 100additional features and capabilities available for design use, whichare not available in Pro/ENGINEER. These improvements stem fromthe limitations of Pro/ENGINEER, answering previous frustrations andmaking the design process more productive. There is no longer theneed to compromise on design intent because you have the precisetools necessary.2. Fully integrated across Creo rangeAs part of the Creo range, it is simple to translate data between CreoParametric 2.0 and any other Creo app, creating a more integrateduser experience. Sharing data between different users and appsbecomes intuitive. Importantly, upgrading to Creo Parametric 2.0 alsomeans you retain all existing design models and data fromPro/ENGINEER. So, the upgrade process will not affect your currentwork.3. Consistent user interfaceGet straight to designing, with an instinctive and structured userinterface. Utilise the mini toolbars to highlight the features you needfor a particular project. Plus, if you cannot find a particular function,there is now a Command Finder to show you where you need to go.Installation times and connections to help resources have also beensped up to improve usability of Creo Parametric 2.04. Build 3D models from 2D designsUse Creo Sketch (available to download for free) to generatefreehand 2D drawings, which can then be easily translated into CreoConcurrent Engineering White Paper, April 2012Page 2 of 4
  • 3. Parametric for optimised 3D design work. Open up sketch work andpresent it next to related 2D and 3D geometry. Plus, it is simple torelocate, rotate, and adapt the scale of your sketch to enhance youroverall design process.5. Improved sketching productivityThe sketch developments allow you to make and adapt sketch-basedfeatures with ease. These enhancements mean you can sketchstraight onto models and make references to 3D shapes.Improvements and efficiencies made to preview features, editing andautoregeneration further increase design productivity.6. Experience freedom in concept designThe new Freestyle designing features of Creo Parametric allow you tomodel freeform objects and surface with ease. You can design bothuncomplicated and more complex objects using the sub-divisionalmodelling abilities, while also providing high-quality engineeringsurfaces in record time. With Freestyle, it is possible to acceleratedesign work by reusing data for detailed work in 3D.7. Fast part modellingCreate part-models for designs more efficiently. With Creo Parametric2.0, key design improvements mean it is quicker and easier to makemodels in 3D. For example, enhanced options for making parallel androtational blends include sketched sections and also nonparallelsections. There are also developments such as helical sweeps andsweep commands, efficient editing and improved previews will allowyou to accelerate design times.8. Enhanced 3D measurementsImprove usability of 3D measurement tool offers a smart andinstinctive method to 3D measuring. For instance, the enhancedmeasurement tool distinguishes and utilises geometric data of theshapes chosen to provide users the relevant results. Also,measurements are easily usable within other operations anddirections.9. Improved sheet metal designUtilise the benefits of designing with sheet metal. Creo Parametric 2.0offers users the capability to automatically generate flat patterns from3D geometry, while also providing advanced previewing and editingConcurrent Engineering White Paper, April 2012Page 3 of 4

Smart interference problem detectionDetect any problems with interfering parts early in the design process.Creo Parametric checks all aspects of a design and instantlyhighlights any potential problem areas for you to address with ease.You can also correct any problems within the 3D design, to preventany costly or time consuming errors later in the design process.11. Best large assembly designAccelerate the speed of designing and leveraging large assemblies.Creo Parametric 2.0 offers loading speeds up to 40 times faster thanpreviously available. Fast and instinctive search capabilities,alongside the new ‘Track Changes’ option, means users can betterunderstand their large-scale assemblies.12. Add-on extensionsThe vast possibilities on offer through the add-on extensions to CreoParametric 2.0 mean that you can adapt the tool to match yourprecise design requirements. It is easy to expand the scope of CreoParametric, by increasing the number of modules and capabilities asyour company requires them.To find out more about how Creo Parametric 2.0 can help you tooptimise your product design processes, call us on 01215069720 or visit for further information.Concurrent Engineering White Paper, April 2012Page 4 of 4
