Creo Detailed Drawing & Advanced Assembly: Level 2

Course Duration: 40 hours

Tuition: $2,300 USD

Overview: Participants in this Creo week-long course will learn in great detail both detail drawings with modern drawing standards, and Creo Advanced assembly functions. Participants have the option to customize this course to fit their specific job requirements, so they are able to learn exactly what they need. For example in a Design-Engine effort to cover advanced assemblies we may also present a serious introduction to Mechanism. Often we conduct an eight-hour effort on the topic of Creo Sheet metal. Participants’ choice. Call today and ask us how this, and other classes can be administered on weekends for more than two students.

Note: We also offer two courses that focus on these topics separately; one on detailed drawing, and the other on advanced assembly. Both courses may be offered as week-long workshops. Call to inquire further. 

Onsite Training: This and all Design-Engine courses are offered onsite at your facility as well. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class at 312.226.8339 today.

Projects: The instructor has a multitude of parts and drawings for class room participation.

Next Class: Learning Creo Surfacing WEEK long or Creo Top Down Design Training or Advanced Assembly week long intensive is recommended as a next class.

Prerequisite: learning Creo Training level 1 is recommended but not necessary.

This Creo course is a comprehensive detailing and managing engineering changes utilizing the latest release of Creo (was Pro/ENGINEER). This Creo course is developed for newer and seasoned users alike who want to become proficient at creating documenting and managing drawings and assemblies in just one-week. We help you learn Creo detailing and assemblies not by reading to participants from an exercise but by solving problems with this powerful tool set. We often depending upon participation cover 6-hours sheet metal or 6-hours mechanism within this class. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming experts faster. As with all Design-Engine classes, participants keep the training material login and password for life.

Video Training Delivery System:

Ask your Design Engine account manager about the Design-Engine Video Training Delivery System or TDS for short. We have prepared this entire class in an easy to follow guide for designers and engineers who may want this TDS as a supplement to this course. Call today to speak to an account manager about the details at 312.226.8339.

*Please note that prices listed on this page are based upon pre-payment prior to the start of the class and does not include the Design-engine Video training Delivery System. The TDS is available as an additional cost to this course.
