An Introduction to CREO


An Introduction to CREO

In this Blog article, Reverse Engineering Service experts Mako GmbH provides an introduction to the 3D CAD software giant CREO.

What is CREO?

Creo, the shorthand name for Creo Parametric, (formerly known as Pro Engineer) is a powerful and intuitive 3D CAD software optimized to address the challenges organizations face as they design, analyze, and share information with downstream partners. This is a strong foundational software supporting an integrated family of product design tools used by majority of the manufacturers worldwide.

This 3D CAD software can easily be customized and extended through the addition of modules and extensions, but the product group also contains stand-alone purpose build design applications such as Creo Simulate, Creo Direct, Creo Layout & Creo Options Modeler. Each stand-alone app serves a different purpose in the product development process.

Why is CREO Parametric considered such a Powerful Product Design and Development tool for your Company?

There are mainly 4 Reasons:


For designers who are involved in multiple phases of the product development process, this software provides scalable access to the right capabilities. Subscription licensing enables to adjust and right-size their software over time.

For those involved in specific aspects of the product development process, there are apps tailored to meet individual needs. Regardless of your role in the product development process, you can use the right tool at the right time.


All of the products in the PTC Creo family speak the same language. Because of this common language, your data flows seamlessly between different apps. This means no more recreating work as you move through the design process and no more walls to throw your data over.

Combined benefits of both parametric and direct modeling

This software integrates the power of both 3D CAD modeling approaches into a single system, so you get the power and control of parametric modeling combined with the speed and flexibility that’s only available through direct modeling

Multi-cad Data Handling

This includes an incredible convince ability to work with and edit data from any CAD source. This means no recreating designs because of incompatible data, and no need to ask your partners or customers to change CAD software systems.
