PTC's Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0

PTC's Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0

Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0 is the latest release of the industry leading, integrated 3-D CAD/CAM/CAE software. With more than 350 new capabilities and enhancements, this release helps engineers overcome key barriers to product design. Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0 provides real-time dynamic editing, enables disruption-free design and improves the user experience with easy-to-use yet powerful, highly automated commands. In addition, this release sets the standard for CAD interoperability, offers seamlessly integrated applications across disciplines such as electromechanical design, and introduces breakthrough social product development capabilities. The new capabilities in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0 dramatically improve the engineer's efficiency and productivity throughout the design process, from concept to manufacturing. The integration of disparate applications such as the Pro/ENGINEER Spark Analysis Extension enables users to leverage multi-disciplinary design tools, which saves time and reduces errors from data translation. New social product capabilities, which are accessed directly from the Pro/ENGINEER user interface, improve collaboration efficiency. According to PTC, the new Pro/ENGINEER Spark Analysis Extension is the only product that performs electrical clearance and creepage analysis directly on the CAD model geometry. Engineers can improve the speed and accuracy of their analysis, ensure product safety and ultimately reduce prototype and production rework time and costs. PTC says Pro/ENGINEER is also the only CAD system enabled for social product development. Enabled by Windchill ProductPoint, the new capabilities in Pro/ENGINEER improve collective knowledge sharing, design collaboration and decision making.
