Creo Sheet Metal Training

Course Duration: 16-24 hours

Overview: This comprehensive suite of Creo sheet metal design tools helps users create features such as walls, bends, punches, notches, forms, and relief features. Using a variety of  Y and K factor bend allowance calculations, designers can create flat patterns of the designs. The result is parametric, fully associative solid models of sheet metal parts and assemblies. Students have the option to customize this course to fit project requirements.  Seasoned sheet metal users should consider this Level 14 Advanced SheetMetal intensive a more advanced sheet metal class.

Projects: Several brackets, deep drawn form, and combination. Curriculum can be combined with Creo Surfacing tools for automobile sheet metal functions or for smaller battery contacts to mating components such as sheet metal boxes to house a computer power supply.

Creo Sheetmetal, like Creo Parametic, allows flexibility in design. Changes are made and updated para metrically throughout the entire design process.

Prerequisites: 400 hours minimum experience with Creo and a willingness to learn.

  • Discuss differences between Creo thin features and Creo Sheet metal.
  • Discuss designing sheet metal parts.
  • Flatten out the part to visualize design and manufacturing needs.
  • Make Drawings of the sheet metal part, incorporating Dimensions, Bend Order tables, Flat Patterns and fully designed parts.
  • Discuss order of feature creation.
  • Discuss why rips are important with respect to stretching.
  • Discuss warn out tooling and how to compensate using Bend Tables.
  • Discuss Wildfire to Creo 4.0 to Creo 6.0 iconography.  What’s new in Creo 5.0
  • Bringing into Creo IGES & STEP imports then covering those files into a Sheet Metal part in order to flatten.
  • Manage the flattened state.
  • Discuss modeling techniques such as starting out with non sheet metal models and converting to sheet metal later to take advantage of shell features.
  • What’s new in Creo 6.0
  • Flexible modeling with respect to Sheet metal


  • Layout and develop Pivot Bracket.  Aluminum bracket then add a Flat State instance.
  • Build another bracket with bends and extruded walls with a variety of challenges.
  • Model dust cover for back of computer using stamp (form features).
  • Create multiple parts that lock together such as a sheet metal computer power supply.
  • Convert an enclosure to sheet metal from a solid geometry and discuss a wide variety of convert tools.
  • There are 20+ models/ exercises for participants.
