Creo Advanced Sheet Metal


Changes are made and updated parametrically throughout the entire design process. The result is fully-associative solid models of sheet metal parts and assemblies ready for production. 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. The curriculum can be combined with Creo Surfacing tools for automobile sheet metal functions or for smaller battery contacts.
