Overview: This is an advanced sheet metal course. Participants will be trained to work on items such as small battery contacts, aircraft mounting brackets, electronics enclosures, larger stove/oven components, or auto panels.

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

Projects: Calculate the developed length of material needed. Pro/Sheetmetal accounts for bends of different radii and material thickness. Convert IGES file with inconsistent wall thickness and punch geometry into a Pro/Sheetmetal part ready for production. Curriculum can be combined with Pro/Surface tools for automobile sheet metal functions or for smaller battery contacts.

Prerequisites: Prior experience with Creo Sheetmetal and a willingness to learn.


  • Set up Creo Sheetmetal for team design efforts.
  • Bend allowance and developed length.
  • Punch and die reference parts.
  • Sheet metal bend tables.
  • Transition bends.
  • Xsec-driven bends and unbends.
  • Deformation areas.


  • Discuss differences between Notch Forms and Punch Forms.
  • Sheet metal design approach.
  • Discuss Creo 5.0 iconography.
  • Discuss K and Y factors and how to modify them for specific tooling or prototyping.
  • Discuss stretching due to deformation areas.
  • Create bend order tables that specify the order, bend radius, and bend angle used for manufacturing.

  • Layout and develop oven and stove component.
  • Create complex beryllium copper battery contact with bend on top of form feature.
  • Use bend table to control.
  • Use automatic Ordinate Dimensions on sheet metal component in drawings.
  • Design sheet metal parts defining the volume and support structures for the components of an assembly.
  • Discuss obtaining specific tolerances.
