Similar Course A comparable course to this one is our Creo Sheetmetal course

Onsite Training: This and all Design-Engine courses are offered onsite at your facility. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class at 312.226.8339 today.

Overview: This is an advanced sheet metal course. 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.

Onsite Training: This and all Design-Engine courses are offered at our location as well as onsite at your facility. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class at 312.226.8339 today.

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.
