The best CAD software
Vorteile: My college uses Creo to teach us CAD. Since then I have worked with other CAD softwares and I have to say Creo was the most powerful of them all. It offers great range of tools to make your designs look amazing and the render option beats it all. It offer much more than any CAD software including assemblies, drawing files but most importantly NC manufacture and mold and cavity manufacture. You can generate CL files for 4th and 5th axis milling.
Nachteile: It takes a while to explore all the best options to optimize your drawings and it's ot easy to use at first. The default template is always imperial and requires changing to metric.

Top notch CAD software - PTC CREO
Kommentare: Iam a mechanical engineering student and a PTC certified CREO user I have learned this software and got a certificate from PTC CREO after passing their examination. So I normally use this software for my college works making CAD drawings for my projects, works, seminars etc. It's easy for me to use it as iam qualified. I would recommend this software to other professionals out there and to the beginners under one condition that they should learn it from a certified place and then they use it, which would really help them enjoy this software instead of getting confused or telling that this software is tough and it's crap.
The main advantages are:
1. It's easy to work with.
2. There a lot of options for our views to accomplish
3. A complete product can be build assembled and put to test in the software itself before making the prototype with the appropriate factors given as input.
4. It's been used by a lot of companies like KTM Duke was entirely built in this software so learning this software helps you out in different ways
5. Even some extent of analysis can be done also in the software itself
6. It's a powerful software well built with less bugs and hence I grand never come across crashing of this software no matter how much inputs use give.
7. For professionals it's a best choice.
The main disadvantages are:
1. It doesn't work on low end systems it becomes slow as it requires minimum 4gb graphics for the program to run smoothly without much load.
2. It's tough to learn you might need a proper guidance to learn it and once you learn it, then you would rule it.
3. It's a bit costly but if you running a company then it's good but not good to buy for personnel use
4. Surely not meant for beginners it's a software that's a high performance one and so it's tough
5. Sometimes the options would get you confused as you work on because there's that much options present.
6. Try to keep in touch atleast once in a month with the software or you might end in forgetting hope to use this software or make sure that you got a book written how to use this software on your own.

A decent 3D CAD Modeling software
Kommentare: My experience with PTC creo is great so far as we have been able to make 3D models and related drawings efficiently.
Vorteile: Creo is a software owned by PTC company. The best part of this tool is that the complex geometries can be made easily and on top of it the sketching part is possible. The surfacing capability of this tool is also very robust and efficient.
Nachteile: If you are a beginner and starting your hands with Creo platform then it may be little difficult in the beginning to understand the tool. The user-interface is not as easy it has to be basically.

My personal favorite CAD software
Kommentare: Modeling of our NPD components were done I'm Creo for drawings and models for vendors.
Vorteile: Creo makes assemblies much better than any other software I've used. I love how the GUI is set up for modeling. Very quick and efficient once hot keys are memorized.
Nachteile: Took some time to adapt to the different clicking shortcuts. Holding down alt or control will change what the left clicking action does.

Buggy and Unintuitive
Kommentare: I have to listen to calming music so that i do not break any of my hardware while using CREO 4.0
Vorteile: There are some minor features that are convenient that other softwares should adopt - such as copy text formatting by selecting the text you want to copy the format of.
I've been using some form of Creo in multiple Jobs for 10+ years, and the only thing that it is able to do consistently is confuse and annoy me. Oh, you didn't know that you had to push that super secret button to get that feature to show? too bad. Sometimes i think it would be easier to create drawings by taking screenshots from creo with the snipping tool and pasting them into powerpoint.
every single time it tries to assume something for you, it does it wrong. Why would I ever assemble objects by selecting surfaces that are NORMAL to each-other?!

Creo View is a complicated software eventhough its capabilities are limited.
Kommentare: The software, when you consider it overall, an exceptional one in terms of its capabilities. And from the Creo View sub module I get the impression that it is good to create a simple working part for each design which only targets a specific duty. So it improves my modular design experience
Vorteile: The system that Creo implement to its products is very beneficial, they create a submodule for each specific task and Creo View is one of them. This creates an opportunity to make more emphasized softwares and it provides a productive working environment.
Nachteile: The overall interface is a little bit problematic and hard to use and it leads a little bit confusion for starters.

Many features but hard to use
Kommentare: Plenty functions and easy to work with others, but hard to learn the software interface and hard to use it for curvature surfaces.
Vorteile: It integrates with WindChill database and it is easy to control the drawing versions with co-workers.
Nachteile: It is hard to use initially but get used to it after some time. It is also hard to use the interface for curvature surface.

Very powerful but other packages may offer better value
Kommentare: Overall a very powerful tool with many options (prepare to open your checkbook). There are other packages that might suit basic needs of most companies (i.e. Solidworks or Autodesk)
Vorteile: The modeling and assembly power is very good. The surfacing is ok. Pro-e/Creo handles large assemblies very well.
Nachteile: The drafting package. Ugh. Its terrible.

One of Nice 3D software for basic 3D modeling having some nice advance features also.
Kommentare: Creo is better as compare to other base level software having advance features for surfacing but user base is less and online help files are also less
Vorteile: Complex part modeling is easy with creo. Nice surfacing tool
Nachteile: Complex to use. Not so user friendly. User base is also less

An advanced CAD software, very suitable for advanced modeling
Kommentare: I use Creo for mechanical engineering 3D modeling (parts and equipment) and the software is quite complete to meet all needs.
Vorteile: Excellent rendering tools, the possibility to create macros and a good support. In recent versions the software has become friendlier to new users.
Nachteile: It is complex software that takes some time to be able to perform good modeling. Although there has been an improvement in the ease of operation, it is still not very intuitive.

Creo - A CAD tool with full of possibilities - review based on the versions from Pro/E 2001 to Croe4
I started working with Creo (earlier known as Pro/ENGINEER) in the year 2004 along with SolidWorks in my first company where I was the main tutor for this two software.
I implemented SolidWorks in a motor manufacturing company along with data migration from AutoCAD to SolidWorks as SolidWorks Certified Support Technician. Since 2007, In my present company, I am using Creo with Windchill PDMLink on a daily basis. During these years, my journey started as an End User and now I am a Business Administrator of Creo and PDMLink for the users from my country. I can say though other tools are easy to learn and might seem low cost, they might not match the robustness of the Creo in terms of 3D modelling of complex geometries as well as large assemblies.
I also used Standard Rendering and I was able to produce a very effective images for product catalogs.
I also used Mechanism and Simulation modules and they are quite capable. Small Scale Industries, those are in search of a tool with fast learning, fast output over robust parametric modelling for short term goals then SolidWorks or SolidEdge is better. For long term goals of Life-cycle management from development to production to withdrawal, Creo is strongly recommended.
Creo is for 3D CAD modelling, drafting and advance assembly extension for large product manufacturing industries. *) before making any purchase decision, I would recommend having a hands-on or demo of all the 3D CAD tools with our area of implementation.
Robust and Advanced Modelling Features including Surface Modeling capability which are capable of easy to very complex geometry.
Family Table, Simplified Representations and Flexible Components.
Skeleton for a top-down modelling approach
Mechanism and Rendering.
Plethora of Config options to suit many customer needs.
Learning Curve is still on the higher side than other rivals such as SolidWorks which has a very fast and shot learning curve.
For Creo, Help is not yet so much intuitive as SolidWorks has unless you go for PTC University portal.
In Drawing, still, some of the things are not up to the mark as compared to rivals.

CAD for people who like doing things the hard way.
Kommentare: If you are looking for a stable software with built in version control this is the package for you. If you are easily frustrated by non-intuitive software you are probably better off with Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks.
Vorteile: By far the most stable CAD application I have ever used. Over the past decade I can count the number of times it has crashed on one hand. Takes a while to understand how to make in context part references, but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to make very complex and stable CAD models. The file versioning takes some getting used to, but is basically built in safety net. Every time a file is saved it creates a new version of that file. You can roll back to previous file versions very easily.
Nachteile: The drawing environment needs some work. The bills of materials are not as versatile as other software I have used, Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks have a leg up in this area. In all my time using it I have never stumbled across features that let me make exploded views of an assembly.

Good but not Great...
Kommentare: Creo is a good software package, but it takes a back seat to Dassault and AutoCAD CAD packages within industries. It just isn't as well known and having Creo on your resume just wont go as far as the prior two mentioned because it is not industry standard...
Vorteile: Creo was the CAD package I learned first manuevering through engineering school. It has a good Mold/Tooling add-on that provides robust analysis of mold design and mold flow.
Nachteile: Creo can sometimes be too detailed for its own good. I used it less and less as I began to teach myself Solidworks (because Creo had become too convoluted when I was a novice user). There is a lot to take in starting off and it can sometimes cause a hindrance in achieving what a beginner needs to accomplish to build confidence in their CAD skills.

Lacks ease of use
Vorteile: The software is very powerful if you can figure out how to use it correctly.
Nachteile: The software is very hard to use. There is nothing intuitive about how to model using Creo. The functions are hard to find and to use. Half the time, you don't know what input the software is looking for. I personally do not care for the layers.

Excellent product has the creation of files Mcad, is efficient and fast in mencanic design.
Kommentare: I have done programming and automation work through this software for interactive development in the classroom.
Vorteile: The generation of an MCAD file which allows generating a sequence of steps that can be programmed for the simulation of the mechanical design made, in addition to its incursion in the electrical design.
Nachteile: That the electric design tool is not very developed, it should be interactive like the mechanics module, it should also offer different packages with different costs that adapt to the budgets of different users.

Creo is fabulous software for 2D and 3D CAD modelling.
Vorteile: I have been using this software for a long time. It is splendid software indeed. When we are working on CAD work, it is very easy to navigate. One of the most beautiful feature of this software is assembling parts together. We can share 3D models, view drawings and make notes through this software very speedily.
Nachteile: The only limitation of this software is that it's layout seems to be quite difficult but once we have command on this software then we get familiar with it and it is easy to understand the concept. As it is versatile so it takes some time to learn as compare to other CAD software. It only needs practice to have good command on it. It's learning curve is quite steeper.

Powerful but not Easy to Use
Kommentare: Overall, when you learn it & its features, it becomes really entertaining to use CREO & design parts.
Vorteile: I mainly used it in the past very often, almost everyday. I like it since it a parametric CAD programme & very powerful. You can use rendering features to make your design look great & it offers you a lot of feature to design different shapes. Its surface generaton module is really powerful.
Nachteile: It takes time to become an expert & it is important to have an experienced guide in your learning period. You should also be careful about constraints during your design process in the design tree.

Creo is awesome!
Vorteile: Extensive functionality, a user-friendly learning curve, and a simple design make creo a great choice for anyone looking to explore CAD more. I appreciate that I don't have to buy any expensive equipment in order to be able to simply view these files (other programs I use require that you buy special mouses in order to properly view the files, but Creo can be used entirely with a standard keyboard mouse.
Nachteile: I'm not sure if it's just me, but for some reason, my wire drawings sometimes make the program crash and this can be very distracting / infuriating. Still, it has only happened on rare occasions and I'd like to chalk it up to my work-space being old.

Great for solid modeling and creating prints
Kommentare: This product has helped me create several fixtures for our company.
Vorteile: This software is very easy to use. Prior to using this software I had only used AutoCAD 3ds. This was a breeze to learn and quickly was able to transition to this software. The ability to then create a print directly from the model makes this a winner for me.
Nachteile: There are. A few limitations on features. My main issue was not being able to create a helical extrusion. But I was able to work around it by lofting.

Great 3D CAD software
Vorteile: It is easy to navigate while working on CAD work. The view is really easy to work with once you understand the concept.
Nachteile: References could be a nightmare when you have to update the geometry several layers after. Need some used to.

An electrical engineer's opinion
Vorteile: The software allows me to open parts and assemblies from windchill. Its a quick way to get a look at the part you'll be using in a design or getting a quick measurement of the part.
Nachteile: The interface can be a bit hard to navigate, but i don't use it as much as a mechanical engineers would.
