Creo Surfacing Training Courses

JW dog ball

All Design Engine Creo training classes have customized material. It’s one of many ways we differentiate from those that sell the software.

Manufacturers often tell us that they have a surfacing expert within their organization that are commonly referred to as ‘old school surfacers’. Well, the Design Engine has been around for over 25 years! Aren’t we ‘old school surfacers too’? The response is often: No, you’re “New School” when it comes to Creo Surafcing.

We like the ring of that.

With travel concerns upon us consider joining us in any number of courses online using video conferencing tools.   The best way to stay relevant is to continually learn.  Following along with us in a GotoMEETING is a safe and healthy way to stay fresh on your game.  Call us to see what’s on the schedule for your team. 312.226.8339

"We are the New School", When it comes to Creo Surfacing

Creo Surfacing: Week One

This workshop has been specifically designed for those interested in gaining a high level of Creo surfacing and ISDX Style usage in just one week. We will take designers and engineers up several notches past their current surfacing level...

Robust Surfacing Techniques

Discuss the many different Creo surfacing styles and techniques. Learn with specific examples the basics of surfacing. More than an introduction, this course sets participants up for an aggressive growth into surface modeling using Creo...

Creo Restyle & Reverse Engineering REX

Learn to transform physical products from digital scan data into digitally correct complex Creo surface & solid geometry as an integral part of your product development process...

Continuity Style/Class A Surfacing

This workshop has been specifically designed for those already with a high level of Creo surfacing or Creo Style experience or for those who specifically took the Design Engine Level 6 Surfacing Class...

Freestyle ‘Sub’D (Subdivisional) Modeling

Learn to Create Freestyle surfaces using the new Sub’D Modeler inside Creo (this tool was new in Creo 1.0). All of our courses are customized...

Creo Surfacing: Week One Alternative Curves and Surfaces

This is the Design Engine WEEK ONE alternate for engineering technicians not interested in learning surfaces to manage form but to use curves and surfaces to get projects completed more efficiently...

Advanced Creo Surfacing

Discuss the many different Creo surfacing styles and techniques. This Creo training course is developed for more advanced surfacing modelers who want to become experts at using Creo Surfaces...

Advanced Import to Create Parametric Surfaces

Learn to create digitally correct complex geometries relative to point cloud imports using parametric curves and parametric surfaces inside Creo...

Advanced Surface Modeling with Surface Edit

This is an advanced course for ISDX experts looking to gain knowledge understanding and workflow with the specific ‘Surface Edit’ functionality within ISDX...

Parametric & Surfacing Intensive

This class is for industrial designers and engineers who migrated from SolidWorks, Rhino 3d or Alias Studio and also took the one-week Level 1 & the consecutive surfacing week but also requires a refresher workshop...

Creo Surfacing: Week Two

This workshop is an advanced Surfacing intensive. The course curriculum is flexible, and can cover any of the more advanced techniques and workflow for surface modeling...

Custom Surfacing

This course is the customized version of the surfacing classes Design Engine offers. Bring in a project that you have struggled with, and we tailor the course around your problem...

Creo Style ISDX

ISDX is the interactive (updates in real time) surfacing module from PTC. ISDX is quite revolutionary in that it combines push and pull like efforts of Alias or Rhino and gives...

Aircraft Forms

If you want to work as an engineer in the aircraft industry, this class is a must. Discuss different surfacing styles and techniques using air forms with plenty of examples...

Pro/ENGINEER, now called Creo, has changed quite a bit over the past 20 years.  Designers and Engineers, even PTC Application Engineers, tend to use the software as they were taught a long time ago.  It’s easy to be set in your ways. That is where we come in! The main reason you push your team in the first place is to avoid complacency. At the Design Engine we help manufacturers get a different perspective using these very same tools by presenting new ways to think and new ways to explore design iterations. Some call it Creo Update training or Surfacing classes, but for us, it’s about changing the way designers think.

Design Engine helps you renew yourself, expand your team’s services, build collaborative relationships, explore new design processes, establish better communication, expand problem-solving skills, change prototype to the manufacturing process (with respect to modeling technique), and – most importantly push a product designer’s growth.  Call it empowerment. Call it education. Call it consulting. We call it betterment.  At Design Engine, we are infectious in attitude as we help your team grow.

Our team builders help create more effective teams through 3d training

Much of our focus is on model management techniques focused on changing models and designs easily. “It’s not how fast you model, but how fast you change the model twenty times that makes you an expert” explains our facilitators during classes. Helping you reinvent your process aids in quoting projects more efficiently and helps you meet your manager’s expectations in a more timely manner. 

“It’s not how fast you model your project, but how fast you change the model twenty times that makes you an expert” explains our facilitators during classes.

Its your manager’s perspective that you look them in the eye and with confidence tell them how long it’s going to take to generate the model.  We arm team members with a process for thinking through the start of a project and for changing the model afterward.  

Don’t get us confused with those who sell the software as their secondary function is to also teach the software. Realize that they teach from a book. We facilitate training using problem-solving and rote rehearsal.  It’s also about vocabulary as well where we are helping your team in creating a natural exchange between design and engineering teams and helping participants create a mutual language for greater understanding. To do this we utilize your ability to problem solve and make everything a puzzle.  We help DESIGN ENGINE participants become more effective communicators. We will help you create more effective team members through this learning experience.
