What do you like best?

First thing is like, everyone suggests same software that they are using.. I always prefer creo.. As name suggests Parametric is the thing where everything is managed to save users working time.. User interface is the best, simple and very productive that we can get only from Creo.. it provides lots of core enhancements.. like lots of mini toolbars are given. makes designer easier.. making an Assembly is very intuitive with Creo.. Mapkeys and family tables are really best.. Which saves time while doing repeating work.. It provides better management for external references.. rendering is very enhanced but simple to use.. lots of improvements are coming in next versions.. Linked with lots of other modules like analysis, simulation, animation.. it has the capability of importing CAD file format.. which helps the user to customize the old files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

nothing to dislike.. sometimes.. only sometimes working on large assembly files leads to unknown errors.. or it crashes.. and major drawback.. rendering crashes.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

for a beginner.. easy to learn software... nothing is hidden like other software.. each command is visible.. which makes a new user to get/learn everything of it.. people highly recommend usage of Creo to any engineering or architectural firms who are in need of better CAD modeling... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

daily cad related work... we have lots of configurations in our daily work/assignments.. creo makes us easier to manage everything.. rendering is the best parts that we are using daily.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What is best for CREO users is the parametrics part, to apply mapkeys and to build a whole process with their code saving tons of time. You can record a process and read the code for that, then you can modify it and even create your own to upload it and do it with different variables.

Its connection to windchill makes it good as well because of easy saving your products and a correct Product life management will be on the way.

Assembling is really easy with their family table and the way constraints are created. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As everything it has some downsides. Their mapkeys are amazing, but it has a lot of limitations when you want to write the code by yourself to change the variables, plus you need an extra license to reach the real power of their parametrics which shouldn't be this way.

The family tables have no finding function, making you go through an excell sheet to find your components or scroll around through one hundren components list PLUS dimensions (or even more).

When you are assembling the only thing that is going to be a strugle is when you apply degrees as a restriction to have a components with different directions, their angles are really bad and moves wrong continuously

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The best thing you could to to maximize your work on CREO is to learn to use the mapkeys as much as you can. The more shorcuts you have, the easier is your job. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create parts and assemblies for Motor Control Centers incluiding Windchill in the process and I have developed several "tools" to improve the work thus saving time mixing VBA to generate CREO code. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

My favorite thing about Creo Parametric is the speed at which it handles large assemblies and smoothness of mechanism motions. Large assemblies can be rotated, moved, and operated on systems that are not extremely powerful. Many of our assemblies are 100s of parts and they are never hard to manage in Creo Parametric. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The main thing I dislike about Creo is the WIndchill system used to handle/store all of the parts and drawings. Windchill is great for storing part and drawing files and finding parts and relations inside assemblies, but that is only if you attribute and describe your parts correctly. The attribute fields and naming/copying/saving workflow is confusing sometimes and can be a difficult for people who are not used to fully describing parts or saving/editing parts in a system like Creo Parametric's Windchill. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Creo Parametric is super simple, user-friendly, well supported, and extremely powerful. The new versions have really great search functions for sorting through vast part libraries to find what you need. Definitely try Creo Parametric! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We draw all of our products, machine parts, and assemblies in Creo Parametric. This lets us all be on the same page with the latest revision of all drawings and make changes while keeping old revisions and relations intact. We can find machine assemblies quickly and print drawings for sub-parts way faster with Creo Parametric than with any other software I have used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Creo allows you to handle fairly large assemblies and cleanly arrange them in a logical working order. It also allows the user to activate and modify each part in an assembly without having to open another window. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As opposed to other CAD software Creo has condensed functionalities and proves difficult to use in an environment. In addition, the software does not let the user handle a simple change in. Many different ways. There is always a single way to do it that doesn’t cause it to crash. This is especially true when designing cables in a 3D environment. If certain predetermined steps aren’t taken in a specific order the design won’t generate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
