With both parametric and direct modeling approaches covered, Creo offers a lot of flexibility when creating and modifying geometry. Creo Direct provides direct manipulation tools for 3D geometry, regardless of whether it was natively built or imported. Creo Parametric offers the traditional parametric feature-based modeling approach. Users can switch between these two apps, bringing their geometry back and forth, so both modeling approaches are available. Creo Simulate offers traditional FEA analysis tools that covers structural and thermal, but not CFD functionality. Creo View gives users the ability to interrogate ECAD deliverables and models created in other CAD applications. Creo also offers the traditional capabilities to create drawings, routed systems, machining tool paths and more.
