Creo SheetMetal

Creo Sheetmetal Training Description

Creo Sheet Metal allows flexibility in design. Changes are made and updated parametrically throughout the entire design process. 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 our Advanced SheetMetal intensive for a more enhanced experience.
