Yes, Creo is previously known as Pro/Engineer. It is an engineering modeling/drafting software. It does the same tasks as Solidworks. I do use Solidworks as well, usually only when one of our vendors sends us native SW files though, I prefer Creo.

Which is better is a highly debated topic with "fan-boys" on both sides of the fence. Solidworks is easier to pick up for beginners, but in my opinion Creo has more functionality. The same geometry can be created with either program, the methods are just different.

The models are created in Creo. These models could be machined, 3D printed, or with some redesign they could be plastic injection molded. Currently I've just been exporting the models to another software Keyshot which is just a rendering software. It takes the models in and I can assign colors, finishes, etc and render fancy images in high resolution.
