Benefits and Description

With Creo Elements/Direct Modeling you can move a face while maintaining their boundaries and adapting the neighbor faces. This new Stretch command strongly resembles the stretch capability in 2D where you move e.g. a straight line and the connected edges are adjusted like a rubber band. You can also stretch several unconnected faces simultaneously at the same time.  

This new capability provides you new possibilities in product design. Modifications that have not been possible before are now achievable in one step.
