In the last two Creo posts, I’ve talked about trends in concept design and the process of modernizing concept design. This week I explore what you need to know (and demand) if you want to buy concept modeling technology. Read full article »
Fireuser: AMD & PTC develop ultra-fast GPU-accelerated 3D transparency mode for Creo Parametric 2.0
This video compares PTC Creo Parametric 2.0 to Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5 for 3D transparency rendering on an AMD FirePro V7900. AMD and PTC developed a new hardware-accelerated transparency feature called Order Independent Transparency (OIT).

PTC Slips on the Shiny Sequins of Creo 2.0…Upgrading?
The 10th app is imminent. It beckons from the ashes… ahem, PTC has formally announced the release of Creo 2.0. For those still clinging to Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5, it may have just the right gleam to get you past the rebranding/restructuring brought out with Creo 1.0. With it, PTC brings you the 10th app to complete the role-specific app fam. Completeness is achieved. All hail the 10th app.

PTC Creo 2.0
We take a look at what the latest version of Creo has to offer. If you’ve been following what PTC has been up to in the last year or so, you’ll be more than aware of the change in both brand and direction. Gone is the oldest name in the parametric modelling game, Pro/Engineer and this has been replaced with Creo.

About a decade ago, the first digital natives began filling engineering positions. These young workers were brought up in the digital environment, and as baby boomers begin to retire in droves, they are the new face of the engineering profession. Will this generation of digital natives produce enough engineers and what kind of workers will they be? Read full article »
Implementation Case Study: Creo (Pro/ENGINEER) Performance Gains on Different Hardware ConfigurationsCreo and Pro/ENGINEER users can realize significant performance gains with the right hardware configuration. Other factors, such as monitor size, resolution, memory, operating system, and video drivers can also be manipulated to enhance your Creo or Pro/ENGINEER experience.
NX users, you’re in luck, because soon you’ll have a chance to hone your CAD/CAM skills and get a healthy dose of real user inspiration at Siemens PLM Connection 2012, set for May 7–10 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
The three-year-old conference, which is produced by the official Siemens PLM user group, PLM World, will give you access to nearly 2,000 other attendees to share ideas with, more than 70 hours of free training, over 350 technical breakout sessions, a vendor trade fair, and key executives and development folks from Siemens.
If you need to convince your manager about the value of sending you, Siemens offers some stats:
- Individual attendees can experience up to a 10 percent increase in productivity which translates to an annual average cost savings of $16,000
- Attendees help their departments achieve an additional 10–15 percent gain in knowledge and productivity
And, if that’s not enough, you can save nearly $300 if you register before April 13. Even deeper discounts are available for groups of at least nine people from the same company.
I’m a firm believer that events like PLM Connection can help you develop into one of the most talented and productive people in the office. It’s also a good way to retain your employees. When you come back from an industry event like PLM Connection, be sure to share everything you’ve learned. And the more opportunities you take to showcase your knowledge—in team meetings, company newsletters, etc.—you’ll reinforce your own education, gain the appreciation of your coworkers and attract the attention of management.
