CREO™ PARAMETRIC 2.0 was designed in direct consultation with PTC to go hand in hand with the latest release of Creo™ Elements/Pro software, formerly known as Pro/ENGINEER. The text acts as a user friendly guide to the program walking the reader through the software and helping them to gain a better understanding of Creo™ Parametric, its assets, and uses. Step by step instructions are provided for utilizing the new capabilities and attributes of the redesigned software.
