4 videos comparing Creo Parametric 2.0 to Pro/E Wildfire 5.0

Posted by Emma Rudeck on 15-Mar-2013 14:50:00

It’s no secret that the release of Creo Parametric 2.0 came with a whole range of new features and functions. And, with these came significant improvements to design productivity and performance. But, you don’t just need to take our word for it. Take a look at these 4 videos to see how Creo Parametric compares in a direct comparison to Pro/E Wildfire 5.0.

Modifying imported models is Creo Parametric (& FMX) compared to Pro|E Wildfire 5.0

Let’s start by taking a closer look at direct editing of design with the Creo Flexible Modeling extension for Creo Parametric compared to Pro/Engineer Wildfire 5.0. Creo Parametric makes the process of working with imported geometry much easier than with previous releases. Since imported data lacks feature history, the design intent is completely lost. In the below example, the impact of design productivity when using Creo Parametric and Creo FMX is clear:

  • 75% less  mouse travel
  • 73% less mouse clicks
  • 72% less open menus
  • 77% less time

Watch the video below to see a direct comparison of how they match up when modifying imported models:

Late stage design changes in Creo Parametric compared to Pro/E Wildfire 5.0

In this example, we’re going to look further at how the Flexible Modeling extension for Creo Parametric can help with late stage design changes, compared to Pro|Engineer Wildfire 5.0. With flexible modeling, you have access to direct modelling tools. This means you can work on imported geometry and fully detailed models; particularly useful when models are built by someone else or when the design intent makes it difficult to modify. In the comparison between Creo Parametric and Pro/E Wildfire 5.0, you’ll see:

  • 34% less mouse travel
  • 50% less mouse clicks
  • 50% less menus opened
  • 52% less time

Take a look at the video below to see a how they compare: 

3D annotations in Creo Parametric compared to Pro/E Wildfire 5.0

Creo Parametric introduces many enhancements, which means that the process of creating 3D annotations is faster than in Pro/Engineer Wildfire 5.0. For example, there is now a dedicated tab in the UI for annotation functions. You’ll see there are already default annotation planes identified and you can easily edit the definition of any of these. In a direct comparison between Creo Parametric and Pro/E wildfire 5.0, there is:

  • 70% less mouse travel
  • 70% less mouse clicks
  • 79% less menus opened
  • 58% less time

To see more of the enhancements to 3D annotations in Creo Parametric and how these compare to Pro/E Wildfire 5.0, watch the video below: 

Measuring in Creo Parametric and Pro|E Wildfire 5.0

Improvements made to Creo Parametric mean that the process of measuring is now much faster than Pro/Engineer Wildfire 5.0.  For example, one of these enhancements is that all the functions for measuring are now within one tool. This allows for one dialogue to be open for all functions.

This all means, when it comes to measuring, Creo Parametric is noticeably faster than Pro/E Wildfire 5.0. This includes:

  • 17% less mouse travel
  • 25% less mouse clicks
  • 65% less menus opened
  • 10% less tims
