Advanced design and product development processes are continually being streamlined to decrease the overall time and cost necessary for product development. Yet, currently many initial designs are created, in great detail, using 2D CAD tools. This is then either moved to a separate 3D CAD tool or passed over to a separate department for them to translate into a 3D design. Having to remake 2D designs in 3D takes time and can result in unforced errors when translating the data from one CAD tool to another.
Creo Layout is a 2D CAD app that allows you to utilise the advantages of 2D and 3D CAD as part of the product design. Easily and confidently make detailed product designs in 2D using Creo Layout, adding additional data for example product dimensions, notes etc. and then utilise this 2D information as part of your 3D design with Creo Parametric. Design information translates with ease between apps in the Creo product range, with the full design intent maintained.
Features & Benefits of Creo Layout
- Make 2D geometry faster with intuitive, flexible drafting abilities
- Easily navigate larger designs through the zoom viewport and filmstrip features
- Import data from Creo Parametric, trace sketches or cross sections, or other 2D systems, DXF, IGES, DWG, DRW, etc., to enhance detailing on designs
- Use 2D concept engineering data as part of 3D designs to decrease the transition between concept and detailed design, reducing the overall design time
