Creo NC: Prototype and Production Machining

Course Duration: 16 hours

Overview: Creo NC or the Creo CNC utility is mainly used by mold makers and production and prototype machine shops. In addition, the Creo CNC eliminates the inaccuracies and inconvenience of exporting Pro/Engineer geometry to third party machining software. Pro/NC is the premier programming system for families of parts with many variations of the same basic design. The programming can be done once for a generic part. New instances of the part are then swapped in, and the machining automatically updates for all instances.

This class is intended on improving the proficiency of CNC skills of the participant using Creo CNC utilities. Sign up your CNC Programmers for this class if you want them to be using the software in a more efficient and more user-friendly manner. Expect faster setups and improved proficiency of your setup people. After this class you can also expect better and faster production runs with fewer scrap workpieces along with improving the proficiency of your CNC operators.

Prerequisites: Pro/NC participants need some operational experience with CNC machining. Creo Surface experience is helpful but not necessary.


  • Milling: 3-5 Axis
  • Turning: 2, 4, and multi-axis mill/turns.
  • Wire EDM: 2 and 4 axis.
  • G-POST: used to create post processors.
  • Process removal simulation.
  • Process plan and route sheet development.
  • Tooling library
  • Learn to create, check, and optimize NC sequences.
  • Pro/Engineer production machining provides manufacturing engineers and job shops with robust NC programming capabilities. Engineers can define custom drilling cycles to accommodate their specific requirements, significantly reducing cycle time. Tool and fixture libraries enable engineers to create, simulate, and document 3-axis milling, 2 to 4-axis turning, and 4-axis wire EDM tool paths.
  • Parametric surface modeling. Utilize Pro/Surface for any number of basic functions within NC operations in toolpath setup procedures.


  • Discuss overview for NC code generation, including NC Program creation, process documentation, post-processing and tool path verification & simulation.
  • Discuss selecting a previous re-roughing NC sequence as a reference for a new re-roughing operation.
  • Discuss Creo’s ability for adaptation to design changes.
  • Eliminate data translation errors with an integrated CAD/CAM from conceptual design to manufacturing.
  • Discuss machining directly to STL data.
  • Discuss why and how to use a previous re-roughing NC sequence as a reference for a new re-roughing operation.
  • Discuss tool path simulation in new Pro/NC that displays the tool shaded, allowing dynamic rotation and zooming during simulation. Note how Creo now automatically performs line removal on the tool path motions.
  • Discuss how simulation can facilitate tool path verification process.
