The leading supplier of prepress equipment, Creo Inc. sought to overcome the product development limitations of 2D CAD by upgrading to a proven 3D modeler. The company’s leadership position in the development of systems and equipment for the graphic arts industry stems from a commitment to research and the application of innovative technologies to product development.
Creo selected the SolidWorks 3D modeling system because of its focus on product design, proven parametric features, bidirectional associativity, ease of use, ease of implementation, large-assembly capabilities, and sheet-metal features. By deploying SolidWorks, Creo has cut CAD time by 80 percent, reduced its design cycle by 20 percent, streamlined the handling of design changes, increased collaboration, and improved design communication and documentation, all of which have reduced time-to-market.
