Parametric or Direct?

A hot topic in the CAD Community is an extensive discussion about parametric modeling vs. direct modeling.

Two modeling techniques with both its advantages and disadvantages. What to choose?

Until now the choice was directly related by the choice of the 3D CAD software. However, with the latest Creo PTC Suite, you can choose. Both techniques integrated in one solution. Do you feel uncomfortable about this choice?

CE Masters uses both the direct and the parametric modeler of PTC and can advise you with practical hands-on experiences. 
Generating numerous concepts is often done quick and dirty. It is about modeling your ideas. Industrial Designers don’t want to be delayed in their creative process due to limitations in their modeler. They want to use the tool as a potter and shape their ideas in 3D. 
Once you choose the right concept, it is often best to remodel the product, starting over from scratch. At this time, you want to embed intelligence, relate parts to each other etc.

It is important to get some insight into the benefits from one technique above the other. Our experts will advise you choosing the right methodology.


CE Masters is now operating under the Pezy Group brand. For more information visit
