CREO STYLE CLASS A SURFACING

Description

This workshop has been specifically designed for those already with a high level of Creo surfacing or Creo Style experience or for those who took the Design Engine Creo Style ISDX class. This course is for experts looking to gain a better understanding of G2 Continuity and Class A surfacing. It is great for Industrial Designers developing Class A surfaces in the automobile industry, as well as, designers doing interiors on higher production runs. This Creo training class is developed for more advanced surfacing modelers who want to become experts at Creo Style or Class A Surfacing. We help you become expert surface modelers with this course. We do not just read to you from a textbook, but instead, teach a workflow that allows for making changes quickly and becoming an expert faster. It is not necessary, but helpful if the participant already has an understanding of light reflections and G2 continuity or a basic understanding of Class A surfacing.

Topics

CREO STYLE CLASS A SURFACING bifer cating
  • Compare ISDX to Alias modeling techniques
  • Discuss 3- and 4- part boundaries and solving issues with both
  • Create ridiculously robust models utilizing bounding box and 3D lattice structures
  • Discuss incorporating handles for further control and understanding over surfaces that look at those curves
  • Compare similar functionality to Alias Studio to discuss modern modeling techniques used in the auto industry
  • Unlock the power of 5 & 7+ degree curves in Creo Style
  • Explore Curvature G2 Continuity and multiple plans of attack by looking at existing products
  • We supplement this training with techniques utilized by Alias, which is what is primarily used in the automotive industry
  • Learn to use Surface Edit tools for modeling a human face, bionic finger and a Harley seat
  • Make significant modifications to surface geometry that would otherwise require remodeling while maintaining tangency or G2 continuity

  • Ability to prove form and the techniques to get multiple 3D iterations within hours instead of days
  • Advanced functions of Creo surfacing plus the strengths and weaknesses compared to other high-end industry surfacing software
  • Discuss how light reflects off of form and discuss form from an industrial designers perspective
