PTC Creo is great for assemblies that multiple users are collaborating on. Models can reference other models that someone in another department has released and when those models are changed, the referenced parts and assemblies are changed. These changes are very helpful when working on collaborative machine designs and comparing forging dies with the final parts.

Read full review Return on Investment CorelCAD easily pays for itself even when not a primary product. Due to its similarity to AutoCAD, it's a reasonable solution with a shortened learning curve for existing AutoCAD users. Read full review Creo is our standard design package and as such we have had a negative impact on time spent designing because it is less user-friendly. In difficult design situations, we have had a positive impact because Creo is better suited for complex designs. Read full review ScreenShots
