Creo Surfacing Advanced Import to Create Parametric Surfaces


This Creo training course is developed for seasoned users to become proficient learning these techniques using Creo in just two days. You will receive an introduction into managing import data to become parametric and modifiable. Learn to create digitally correct complex geometries relative to point cloud imports using parametric curves and parametric surfaces inside Creo. Participants will work with a choice of Rhino, Geomagic, Restyle & Alias surface imports or various point cloud data. We help you learn an efficient Creo workflow, not just read to you from a textbook. In this class, we teach design engineers how to make changes quickly and set them up for becoming an expert faster. This workshop is only for those designers or engineers who have taken at least two 16 hour workshops from Design Engine in the past. Prior import experience is not necessary. However, this is an advanced class and participants are expected to have a high level of surfacing experience.


  • Review basic import functions
  • Redefining functions for import geometry
  • Learn to manipulate import geometry
  • Review in-depth advanced import functions
  • Manage various import geometries
  • Discuss solutions to issues with import geometry
  • Learn workflow solutions and problem solving techniques with Creo Surfacing and ISDX
  • Maintain some parametric ability with multiple imports
  • Create fully modifiable Creo geometry with scan data
  • Learn to rebuild import geometry completely with full robust parametric controls
  • Use layers to manage offset surfaces in the solidification effort

Duration & Cost

16 hours = $1650 per student

We suggest having previously taken either the Design Engine Creo Surfacing Week One or the Creo Surfacing Level 6: Creo Style ISDX


  • Learn techniques for managing import data
  • Learn alternative techniques to getting scan data for capturing form
  • Move import data into the appropriate position for managing the model construction process
  • Build parametric curve and surface geometry directly or indirectly from IGES or STEP geometry
  • Workflow techniques for rebuilding robust parametric models from import geometry
  • Inspection techniques to compare one parametric model to existing scan data
  • Create offset surfaces for shelling techniques
  • Learn how to use import geometry for checking assembly interference
  • Learn how to use ISDX to reverse engineer components and make parametrically robust geometry that can be modified after analysis
  • Import techniques for rebuilding ergonomic forms
  • Create parametric curves and surfaces on top of static import geometry
Task Chair


  • Reverse engineering history and evolution
  • Discuss using import geometry for checking assembly interference
  • Discuss polygon imports and contrast from Geomagic or Restyle IGES imports
  • Discuss the multitude of scan data techniques and offer suggestions to users who actually conduct the scanning process for easier recreation using Creo
  • Discuss granite one seamless imports
  • Learn first article inspection techniques within Creo
  • Discuss polygon imports in great detail and as a part of an exercise use poly geometry to create robust parametric data
