PTC Creo

Combine a 3D mouse with PTC Creo to ensure you have the power to quickly deliver the highest quality, most accurate digital models. Engage both hands in to a balanced and cooperative work style where one hand uses the 3D mouse to position the model while the other hand simultaneously uses the traditional mouse to select, create and edit.

It’s a two handed work style where you click a lot less and accomplish a lot more.

From concept, to sketch, to part, to assembly and drawing, you’ll finish faster in every mode and be amazed that you ever worked without a 3D mouse!

Why Creo users rely on 3Dconnexion 3D mice

  1. Increase Productivity by more than 20%*1: When working with one hand, you can either navigate your model or select commands. With a 3D mouse you can do both at once saving you valuable time.
  2. Enhanced Comfort: Up to 50% fewer mouse clicks*2 by spreading the workload across both hands.
  3. Design Performance*1: Whether you’re working on a sketch or a complex 3D model, the superior navigation experience encourages levels of model exploration that are crucial to avoiding costly design errors.

Easier access to application functions

Intelligent Function Keys* provide quick access to any Creo Mapkey. Get visual feedback on the SpacePilot Pro LCD or SpaceMouse Pro On-screen Display and watch functions update automatically as you move from one application environment to another. Personalize the function keys quickly and easily inside any environment such as Sketch, Part Modeling, Assembly, Drawing and more.

Sketch Mode

Use the mouse to sketch and simultaneously use the 3D mouse in the other hand to optimally position and reposition the work plane. Inspect your sketch from multiple positions. Access commands like Sketch Orientation, Continue/Quit with a single click of the Intelligent Function Keys.

Part Modeling Mode

Use the 3D mouse to view the model from several different view angles while simultaneously using the mouse to adjust the “drag handles” on the model to resize extrusions, rounds, chamfers, fillets or other features being created.

Assembly Mode

Activate the “drag a packed component” function by pressing an Intelligent Function Key. Or add dimensions and annotations by mapping those functions to the device buttons. The 3D mouse senses which work mode you are in and automatically brings up new commands to streamline your workflow.

Drawing Mode

Easily position the drawing view at the optimal location on the drawing area. Use the mouse to reposition the drawing view, and at the same time, move the entire drawing surface with the 3D mouse. Map functions like dimensions and special symbols to the Intelligent Function Keys for rapid access in drawing mode.

Accelerate Preview Mode

Use the mouse to select, then pan, zoom and rotate the preview of the item with the 3D mouse. Accelerate all preview actions including File Open, Insert Component, Insert Fitting, Drawing Symbol Instance Palette, and Custom Drawing Symbol.

* Intelligent Function Keys and Keyboard Modifier keys available on SpaceExplorer, SpaceMouse Pro, SpacePilot and SpacePilot Pro only
