Stratasys to streamline design for 3D print with PTC Creo
Stratasys and PTC have joined forces to encourage the use of additive manufacturing across more industries with the launch of PTC Creo 3.0 CAD Software for optimising the design-to-creation workflow for 3D printing.
PTC Creo 3.0 offers users 2D, 3D, parametric and direct modelling facilities – as well as further functionalities such as file preparation, print optimisation and execution – for Stratasys 3D print machines, specifically the Objet500 Connex3. The integrated system is intended to eliminate the need for designers and manufacturers to use multiple CAD programs in their workflow.
"Lowering the barriers involved in designing for 3D printing and unlocking the vast potential of additive manufacturing are primary goals of Stratasys' strategic vision," comments Dan Yalon, executive vice-president of business development and marketing and vertical solutions at Stratasys. "By cooperating together, PTC and Stratasys intend to bring significant value to our customers – making additive manufacturing more accessible while providing practical, easy-to-use tools for designing and manufacturing using 3D printing."
