Creo Custom Surfacing

Description

This course is the customized version of the surfacing classes Design Engine offers.  Bring in a project that you have struggled with, and we tailor the course around your problem. This course is usually administered one-on-one. This class is perfect for product design engineers who already maintain a high level of surfacing but want to elevate their skills.

This course is usually administered one on one. This Creo training class is a custom workshop where you bring your project, and we help bring it to completion. We teach design engineers how to approach surfacing projects and make multiple changes on the model without failed features.

Topics

  • Learn to take advantage of isoparms/isolines with respect to striation or flow of a surface
  • Learn about tangency issues in-depth using examples from difficult surface anomalies with or without control points
  • Learn advanced details of Sweeps, blends & other curve & surfacing techniques to maintain Draft
  • Learn techniques for capturing form by looking at various foam models and offer several starting examples on how to initiate the modeling process
  • Alternative surface creation techniques from robust curves
  • An introduction to 3D bounding boxes or lattice structures
  • Discuss how to incorporate handles for further control as well as understanding surfaces that look at those curve

Discussion

  • Modeling techniques with respect to industry standards
  • Light reflections from an industrial designer’s perspective, with respect to G2 Continuity
