PTC releases Creo Schematics 2.0 PDF Print E-mail

PTC shook up the CAD market with the departure from the Wildfire brand to Creo with the modern ribbon user interface. They also revamped the Routed Systems Designer brand with Creo Schematics also sporting the new Office-style ribbon user interface and some other new UI improvements too. Feedback from customers has been very positive and the good news is that IT'S COMPATIBLE WITH WILDFIRE TOO!

The ribbon interface allowed a departure from the solely icon-based toolbox approach to a MS-Office style ribbon. The transition allowed better grouping of commands with labeling to help the new/intermediate user navigate around the interface.

Not content with drastically improving the interface they also added some great new capabilities, including (but not limited to):

  • New parameter editor, similar to Creo View 
  • Ability to search in central catalog
  • Drag box  for selected items, with rotation handle (no resize yet though)
  • Ability to apply pin parameters to a component without needing a datatable
  • Support for draft groups allowing placement of disparate components in one action
  • Inline connectors (implemented via draft groups) so that variable connectors can be placed and edited simultaneously
  • Customizable cable decorations
  • New command to automatically place labels
  • Ability to jump to the catalog item from one placed on the sheet
  • Customizable Quick Access Toolbar and Ribbon

Combining the interface improvements and the fact that Creo Schematics is still backwards compatible all the way to Wildfire 3.0 it's well worth the upgrade and you'll be happy you did!
