Tooling development for progressive dies is best approached with a purpose-built solution. With PTC Creo Progressive Die Extension software, easy-to-use wizards guide the user through automatic strip layout definition, cut stamp creation, and placement/modification of die components. Documentation, clearance cuts, and drilled holes are created automatically, enabling die designers to avoid manual, error-prone tasks.
– Process-oriented workflow automates progressive die design and detailing, enabling quicker time to production
– Includes large library of die components and fasteners for faster detailed design
– Speeds unbending and identification of features for staging
– Increases design flexibility, allowing new stages to be added even after the die is created
– Increases efficiency through automation of repetitive tasks, such as creating clearance cuts
Whats new in this release
PTC is pleased to present Creo Progressive Die Extension (PDX), a renaming of Pro/ENGINEER Progressive Die Extension and Creo Elements/Pro Progressive Die Extension. Creo provides a path towards PTCs new design software.
PDX 7.0 is supported for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 and later Creo Parametric releases. Datecodes, sometimes known as build dates, for the two products must be compatible for the proper functioning of PDX.
PDX 7.0 is interoperable with the following Product Data Management (PDM) solutions from PTC: Pro/INTRALINK 8.0 and later, Windchill PDMLink 8.0 and later, and Windchill ProductPoint 1.1 and later. Starting with this release, the interoperability of PDX with other PTC products matches that of Creo Elements/Pro and Creo. All PTC products with datecodes compatible with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0, Creo Elements/Pro 5.0, or Creo 1.0 run with PDX.
