From 2D to the Model-Based Enterprise (Part II)

In my previous post “From 2D to the Model-Based Enterprise (Part I),” I talked about the cultural changes needed to realize a Model Based Enterprise (MBE). But culture isn’t the only thing that changes; processes and tools can look dramatically different by the time you transition your organization away from 2D drawings.

Tools and Resources for FIRST Student Engineers

It takes more than a few seats of free software to engage students in science and technology. So, as supporters of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), PTC has been developing webinars and workshops that students can stream, attend, or download to make sure they’re successful in their earliest ventures into engineering.

Blue Star Designs Cool Air Conditioners with PTC Creo

More than 70 years ago, a company in India called Blue Star began manufacturing machines for making ice candy—better known as ice pops in the US. Over time, the founders realized that their core competency wasn’t childrens’ treats. It was the vapor compression cycle!

The vapor compression cycle is a four-step approach to cooling. It’s the mechanism used in refrigerators, freezers, and central air conditioners, and Blue Star today participates in all those markets.

The Truth about Direct and Parametric Modeling

The PTC folks have asked me to give you lovely people a few of my thoughts over the course of each month. For my first outing, I’d like to tackle one of the oft covered, but rarely dissected subjects in today’s 3D modeling community — that of direct modeling. Specifically, how it can operate in a “parametric environment.”

3dcadworld.com: Integrated CAM Apps Help Engineers Take Designs Straight to Manufacturing

by Barb Schmitz, Senior Editor, 3dcadworld.com

“Seamless integration of CAM software into the design process can be a huge help in addressing time-to-market issues,” said Brian Thompson, vice president of Creo Product Management at PTC. “If the manufacturing and design engineers are working with the same data, then early visibility into any manufacturing issues is easy, and the resulting collaboration will allow the team to catch and correct manufacturability issues before they hit the production floor.”

You need to weigh the benefits of the new technology against any disruption it might cause your team. So while many big names have already moved from Pro/ENGINEER to PTC Creo, only you can judge what’s strategic for your team at any given time.
