Todd Kraft, CAD product manager, PTC: Designed uniquely for the engineer, PTC has a robust arsenal of simulation software that has the familiar Creo user interface, engineering terminology and seamless integration with CAD and CAE data. You have at your fingertips an easy-to-use structural, thermal and vibration analysis solution with a comprehensive set of finite elements analysis (FEA) capabilities.
In recent years PTC has integrated Ansys technology into Creo to create two products. The first, Creo Simulation Live, provides design engineers instantaneous structural, thermal, modal and fluid flow design guidance, disrupting the traditional, time-intensive design process with instant feedback through real-time simulation. The second product, Creo Ansys Simulation, is a fully featured, high-fidelity simulation tool which leverages Ansys’ capabilities for thermal, structural and modal analyses directly within Creo.
