The world of product design is changing with the introduction of exciting, new technologies. To help you grab opportunities, Creo 4.0 includes breakthrough capabilities in Additive Manufacturing, IoT, Model-Based Definition (MBD) and Augmented Reality (AR). Now you can design faster and smarter because your digital designs are connected to physical products. It’s a winning combination: Creo 4.0’s new tools along with extensive core enhancements to support day-to-day productivity.

Core Productivity Enhancements

Creo 4.0 is our most productive release yet. There are hundreds of enhancements to make your job faster and easier. Here are just a few:

  1. New interaction workflow: increased productivity.
  2. Modeling enhancements: core modeling capabilities are better than ever.
  3. Materials library: more than 100 new materials available out-of-the-box.


Smart, Connected Product Design

With Creo Product Insight, you can design digital sensors as an integral part of your CAD model and connect them, via PTC’s ThingWorx, to a product in the field. Now you’re driving your design process with facts, not assumptions.
Replace the assumptions in your design process with facts.**


Additive Manufacturing

What you see is what you print. Creo 4.0 closes the gap between 3D CAD and 3D printing
Additive Manufacturing is changing product design, but it is done using a disconnected multi-step process. The Creo 4.0 Additive Manufacturing Extension solves this problem by enabling you to design, optimize, validate, and print all within a single piece of software.

  • Create parametrically controlled lattice structures.
  • Directly connect to 3D Systems and Stratasys printers.
  • Track, validate, and manage print jobs.
  • Eliminate mistakes due to human error.
  • Direct connection to service bureaus.
  • Improved rapid prototyping.

Design, optimize, validate, and print all in Creo.



Model-Based Definition (MBD)

Creo 4.0 removes the barriers for successful MBD implementation.

With MBD, all the information about your product lives in a fully-detailed, documented 3D model accessible to everyone from engineering to package design. The improved workflows make it easier than ever to author and publish the full model-based definition.

  • Increase productivity.
  • Reduce costs.
  • Provide consistency.
  • Eliminate mistakes due to human error.
  • Improve design communications.
  • Enhance GD&T understanding.


Augmented Reality (AR)

With AR the physical and digital worlds converge.

Coming soon, a native integration between Creo 4.0 and Thingworx Studio, the world’s leading AR platform. This will enable you to create AR experiences of your design.

The result: A more effective, engaging, and compelling design review process.
