Creo Robust Surfacing Techniques

Description

More than an introduction, this course sets participants up for an aggressive growth into surface modeling using Creo.  This two-day course has the same curriculum as the first two days of the Creo Surfacing Week One. We will discuss the many different Creo surfacing styles and techniques. Learn with specific examples the basics of surfacing.

Topics

  • Use Extruded and Swept surfaces to create simple surfaces
  • Learn to build thin protrusions from single and merged surfaces
  • Learn to use the Extend, Freeform, Blend, Revolve and Flat Tools to create surfaces
  • Use Transform surfaces
  • Learn the basics of Import Data Doctor by managing IGES & STEP
  • Learn to use basic Sweep functions
  • Use the basics of four part boundaries
  • Utilize Merge to join surfaces
  • Discover how well Creo handles 3-part boundaries but understand the inherent problems with these 3-part surfaces
  • Discover blends
  • Learn to use Surfaces with respect to Top-down design
  • Learn to use Copy and Paste special with Curves and surfaces
  • Use surfaces to effect solid geometry

Prerequisites

Basic Creo experience is necessary

Projects

  • Build solids from surface quilts
  • Learn how to build and construct robust 4-part boundaries
  • Create parametric curves, i.e. Datum Curves
  • Stapler, sweeps and top down design

  • Compare and discuss other surface modeling software to Creo
  • Discuss clam shell plastic part design as related to Swept surfaces and discuss styling grooves with examples.
  • Proper techniques of surface modeling
  • Discuss modifying models that others have designed
  • Discuss in detail surface analysis tools and the practical uses with specific examples
  • Discuss in detail how bad habits are formed with respect to surfacing and how you can avoid those same pitfalls
