Students will learn the new user interface and how to navigate and manipulate it to there specific needs. Participants will also study and use Sketch Utilities, Part Mode, Assembly Mode, Create feature relations, Modify features, and Edit Definition of features using Creo 3.0 or Creo 4.0 when it comes out.

Students will compare and contrast differences of Creo 4.0 to previous releases such as Creo 2.0, Wildfire 5.0, and earlier Pro/ENGINEER versions. There has been a great deal added to Creo that your team may have missed over the years since Wildfire 2.0 or previous that your instructor may present in this class that can significantly benefit your team performance.  Not just whats new in the latest release.
