Creo Import Data Doctor

Description

This training course will introduce the basic techniques needed to use the tools of Import Data Doctor (IDD). The goal of this class is to gain the ability to use external sources in your designs, modify or repair geometry. You will learn to manage import geometry from various 3D packages such as Alias, Rhino, or SOLIDWORKS using this powerful subset of tools. We will teach users how to ensure accuracy, consistency and avoid unwanted gaps or errors within those parts or assemblies. Our instructors will familiarize designers and engineers with the user interface through field-relevant workflow procedures rather than a textbook-read approach.
