The Desktop Engineering magazine has selected the PTC Creo 3.0 design software suite from PTC Inc. as its Editor’s Pick of the Week for July 16, 2014.

Anthony J. Lockwood, editor at large for Desktop Engineering explains that PTC Creo 3.0 introduces the company’s new Unite technology that enables users to open or import CATIA, NX and SolidWorks files directly in their PTC Creo app and work on them without needing another piece of software. Even Autodesk Inventor and Solid Edge files can be imported into this design software suite.

The flexibility allowed by the Unite technology enables users to easily deal with files from clients and colleagues, and even convert a legacy file to PTC Creo on demand.

Desktop Engineering magazine is published monthly by Level 5 Communications, an industry-leading media brand covering hardware and software engineering solutions for the manufacturing, medical, automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, process, and other industries. Desktop Engineering, in its online version, functions as a valuable resource with breaking news from the global engineering, design, and manufacturing industries.
