Creo Piping & Schematics

Creo Piping Training class Description

This three or five-day learn Creo piping design training course is intended for drafters, mechanical engineers & technicians involved in the management of routing pipe, plumbing, pneumatics, hydraulics on small or large systems. Participants will gain a healthy knowledge of routing pipes and various flow diagrams within Creo assemblies all in one week. For the longer 40 hour version of this course your team using Creo Schematic will learn how to create 2D PD&ID, then route that geometry through 3D Creo piping assemblies in order to obtain pipe lengths and the appropriate detailed drawings of piping hardware. After completing this course, participants can create both 2d and 3d piping detailed drawings and subsequent and associated 3d manufacturing deliverables using the latest version of Creo. 

The 32 hour version of this course does not cover the Creo Schematics PD&ID workflow whereas the 40-hour version covers the extra 16+ hours of study and the use of Creo Schematics PD&ID XML routing tools. See also related courses, Creo Harness Design training course or the full week of Creo Schematics. At Design Engine we make experts.  

A two week version of this course can be established for those technicians learning Creo that are looking to make themselves indispensable for various manufacturers. See Design Engine Four Week Comprehensive

Duration & Cost

32 or 40 hours = $2100 or  $2850 per participant
This course is often administered in a 3 day format without the PD&ID XLM import from Creo Schematics.

CREO LEARN TO DESIGN and a basic understanding of ASSEMBLIES and TOP-DOWN DESIGN are strongly recommended.

Creo Piping Discussions

Creo piping design training
  • Describe with photos and images various piping with examples from tractors, mowers, industrial machinery to motorcycles and cars. 
  • Describe with photos and images the wide variety of fittings and various piping hardware for developing a wide variety of piping designs. 
  • Describe with photos and images various pipe management components and methods.
  • Discuss how PD&ID Creo Schematics integrated with routing lines and pipes and auto route work together to enhance efficiency.
  • Expand upon alternate methods to gather usable fittings i.e. IGES/STEP from connector manufacturer websites and other 
  • Discuss how to handle modifications to a pipe if parts of the Pipe if parts of the assembly turn up missing
  • Discuss how Top-down design or surfaces can aid in the Creo piping routing process
  • Manage PD&ID Creo Schematic libraries within Windchill
  • After successfully completing this Piping design course, participants will be able to create 3D piping, cables, and subsequent piping and associated manufacturing deliverables using Creo assemblies and PD&ID Creo Schematics.

Creo Piping Projects

Design Engine has prepared a series of 17+ Creo Piping & Creo PD&ID Schematics tutorials designed to lead the participants through the cabling design and modification process.  Projects range from routing both flexible and straight pipes complete with elbows and other pipe management Creo models that will be necessary to get experience and learn the Creo Piping Module.  Projects include plumbing for a hot tub, brake lines bicycles & motorcycles, and front-end loader hydraulic lines.

Day 1: Create and/or download various fittings from your favorite piping fittings supplier, then prepare those fittings properly for routing. Learn to route pipes by manually, that is without the use of PD&ID Creo Schematics models. Learn to create pipe lines in a variety of both flexible and strait pipe examples.

Day 2:  Explore the use of Top Down design as it relates to Creo Piping Design. Route a series of strait pipe inserting fittings as nesseary. 

Day 3: More intermediate demonstration using Creo Schematics PD&ID. Learn to create Creo Schematics library symbols. Create a simple custom PD&ID schematics to export that logical data, then route the subsequent pipe using Creo Parametric assembly.

Day 4: Complete exercise from day three. Discuss any problem solving techniques for figuring out any problems. Start a new project that is more complicated using Creo Schematics then route that new PD&ID schematic using Creo Parametric.

Day 5: Create more custom PD&ID Creo Schematic Symbols relative to your work, then use those symbols to create a more complicated schematic related to your work. Use this day to start your company connector library.
