Create impressive 3D product designs with amazing speed; develop the 3D CAD skills now in great demand with employers worldwide; and join the world’s largest professional network of 3D CAD designers by installing your Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 Student Edition.

Easy to Learn, Easy to Use

Creo Elements/Pro features an intuitive interface with hundreds of tools which bring your most creative ideas to life—fast! In fact, recent tests have shown that Creo Elements/Pro users can perform tasks 40% to 70% faster than competitive CAD solutions.

More Modules—All 100% Integrated

Because every Creo Elements/Pro CAD/CAM/CAE module is fully integrated and 100% associative, changes made to one module are instantly propagated to all other modules—providing you with an instant view and verification of design changes. You’ll work faster and smarter throughout the entire project.

Same Tools Used in the Industry

The Student Edition features the same advanced Creo Elements/Pro technology used everyday by hundreds of thousands of professionals worldwide. That means the skills that you develop will be immediately transferable to the professional world.


  • Powerful, parametric design capabilities allow superior product differentiation and manufacturability
  • Fully integrated applications allow you to develop everything from concept to manufacturing within one application
  • Automatic propagation of design changes to all downstream deliverables allows you to design with confidence
  • Complete virtual simulation capabilities enable you to improve product performance and exceed product quality goals
  • Automated generation of associative tooling design and manufacturing deliverables.

Key Features:

Rewarding 3D Design Experience

Creo Elements/Pro is the hottest CAD software on the market—not just in the industry, but in academia as well. 80% of the TOP 50 Engineering Programs in US are teaching Creo Elements/Pro. Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 Student Edition is an efficient extension from your computer lab to your own PC.

Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 Student Editions offer powerful new capabilities and usability enhancements that optimize design processes and further improve personal and process productivity:

Find Models Easier with Graphical Browsing - Students can now see thumbnails of their models in the File Open dialog and in Windows Explorer. You can now spin, pan, and zoom models in the new pop-up viewer does not load Creo Elements/Pro models into session, so performance is excellent.

Improved Undo and Redo - Students can now recover for mistakes easier, enabling them to try things without being afraid of losing their work. You can undo and redo multiple commands and view the undo and redo stack to see how far back or forward you want to go. In general, Undo is more robust and available in more areas than before.

Model Recovery - If Creo Elements/Pro exits unexpectedly, the model in session and the last used configuration are automatically backed up. When Creo Elements/Pro restarts, you can select the model you want automatically loaded back into session.

All-New Failed Feature Behavior - Regeneration failures are easier to understand and fix in both parts and assemblies. If a feature fails to regenerate due to some change in a model, the model continues to regenerate by skipping the failed feature. Students can then edit and fix the failed features from the Model Tree. You have the flexibility to fix your model immediately or to continue modeling and address the issues at a later time. Assemblies can even be opened with missing information.

Easier to Use Sketcher - Sketcher improvements include the following:

  • Constraint shortcut menus, object-action workflow, and a consolidated user interface.
  • A new Equal Dimensions Constraint
  • Toggle between a diameter, radius, and linear diameter dimension.
  • Create any type of dimension (Normal, Perimeter, Reference, or Baseline) by clicking the dimension icon on the toolbar.

Improved Sketch Diagnostics - As issues are selected from the Feature Requirements dialog box, relevant entities are also now highlighted in the sketcher window. This is helpful for locating open and duplicate sketch entities, open sections, etc.

Realism Enhancement - A transparent floor command is added to real-time rendering, just click the button (next to Shade) and the model is rendered.

Improved Rendering – Rendering models has been greatly improved with regard to ease of use and quality.

Installation and licensing has been improved for education editions.

If you’re a student or educator looking to develop or teach the skills that are in the greatest demand in the industry, then it’s time to acquire your own version of Creo Elements/Pro.
