Now more than ever, product design and manufacturing teams are expected to create efficient, cost-effective products, without sacrificing innovation or quality.

That’s why so many organizations use the 3D CAD software known as PTC Creo Parametric to accelerate the design of parts and assemblies. Working with many product development organizations, we know that not every product is made equal.

The purpose this EAC Creo Clip is to show PTC Creo users, like you, functionality and capabilities you might not know about. Short clips, useful features, better designs – It’s that simple.

Fortunately, Creo delivers the most scalable range of 3D CAD product development packages and tools in today’s market.

In this Creo clip, we talk about how to check design interferences with Creo Parametric 5.0. We talk about how you may be able to skip the full interference check if you are looking to do a very quick analysis for interferences in specific areas of your models. Learn why, in some situations, the sectioning tool might be the best option.

Why are we talking about finding interferences with Creo’s sectioning tool? Most people are familiar with finding interferences in their models by using global interference checks, which is a great tool. Unfortunately, with larger models, it can take some time to run and it might not pinpoint the interferences that you are looking for.

Watch this short EAC Creo Clip that demonstrates how to find interferences in models using the Creo Parametric sectioning tool.
