About Part
Creo Part enables you to design models as solids or surfaces in a progressive three-dimensional modeling environment. Solid models are geometric models that offer mass properties such as volume, surface area, and inertia.
Creo provides a progressive environment in which you create and change your models through direct graphical manipulation. You drive the design process for your project by selecting an object (geometry) and then choosing a tool to invoke an action on that object.
As you work with your model, the context sensitive user interface guides you through the design process. After you choose an object and an action, Creo interprets the current modeling context and presents requirements and optional items to complete the task. This information is displayed in a tab that enhances your ability to directly work with your models by assessing your actions and guiding you through the design process. The Creo progressive modeling environment streamlines the design process.
