Projects: Calculate the developed length of material needed. Creo Sheet metal  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 Creo Surfacing tools for automobile sheet metal functions or for smaller battery contacts.

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