It’s no surprise that product design firms and manufacturing companies are under constant pressure to develop more products in less time – and that’s without sacrificing innovation or quality. There are so many participants who are often involved in developing products that you can sometimes forget where the design intent came from or who is supposed to be working on what.
All sorts of professions, from marketing professionals to industrial designers and engineers, and to analysts, managers, and service professionals all desperately need design software tools that make their jobs easier. They need to work well together to increase efficiency and make sure their product development processes run as smoothly as possible.
So where does that leave them?
You don’t have to look far to find something that can help your design team work more efficiently. Make sure your team work on time to project schedules with Creo Flexible Modeling, which is an add-on extension to Creo Parametric that works directly on geometry. The software helps you to make changes to your designs even if you don’t have the design intent in front of you or if there are no parameters to work by. There are four main features and associated benefits of 3D CAD modeling with Creo Flexible Modeling:
Increase detailing in your designs
With Creo Flexible Modeling, you have the ability to modify parametric design data with ease. You can quickly make a geometry modification by moving, removing, attaching and changing (and more) the model in a single action.
Select geometry with ease
Even on surfaces and objects, Creo apps orking directly on geometry, you can pick your geometry you want to modify using an intuitive 3D dragger you can relocate parts of the design into a new place. The system will then automatically re-attach your geometry to the model.
Exact control when modifying designs
Make sure the changes you do make – even the changes you’re making days before the deadline - count. Exert precision and control when modifying your models, such as cylinders and cones, with Creo Flexible Modeling Extension.
Adapt multiple entities at the same time
With Creo Parametric, you can adapt a full range of design geometry, as well as other feature such as rounds and patterns, all at the same time. Plus, the full design intent is maintained. Creo Parametric optimises your time and decreases mistakes in 3D CAD modeling.
At the end of the day, you need to make changes quickly and efficiently – so what’s better than making changes across multiple entities simultaneously? Creo Flexible Modeling has advanced and powerful tools for pattern and symmetry recognition. If you were to import, for example, a file from a third-party CAD system, you can then add intelligence to it. You can search a specific model for patterns of symmetry, identifying patterns. You can even go in and redefine that very pattern and the number of instances or set of surfaces. Once you’ve made your changes, you can then reference the pattern or propagate the original pattern to all of its instances.
