Creo Surfacing: WEEK ONE

Creo Surfacing Training Description

This Creo Surfacing Training WEEK ONE course is tailored for designers and engineers to enhance parametric controls for the latest or your specific release of Creo. The first week of this Creo surface modeling training course is one of Design Engine’s most popular courses! Experienced users will significantly improve their Creo surfacing skills within one intense week of learning. We customize the training approach based on participants’ learning needs and organization goals or projects. As with all Design Engine training courses, we help industrial designers and or design engineers learn to quickly and modify their models to accelerate their path to becoming surfacing experts. This training can also include automobile-style surface modeling techniques. This class is also the prerequisite for the Design Engine Aircraft Surfacing class and WEEK TWO Creo surfacing training.

To gain the most from this Creo surfacing training course, it is strongly recommended that designers or engineers with under 4 years of using Creo take the Design Engine Creo Training ‘Learn to Design’ Course. Also, for the same reason those experienced designers & Engineers with over 15 years of using Creo should seriously consider taking our Creo Update Training before taking this course.

Creo Surfacing Training Topics

Grey headphone
  • Discuss strengths & weaknesses of Creo vs industry standard surfacing products
  • Aggressive introduction to Creo Surfacing workflow techniques
  • Introduce 3D bounding box or Lattice structures to control organic form
  • Learn to initiate the Creo surface modeling process from 2D/ Foam model evaluation
  • Learn to contend and manage knots, isoparm & isolines
  • Build surfaces from equations and  graph features
  • Discuss light reflections from the consumer or industrial designer’s perspective with respect to G2 & G3 Continuity
  • Learn to mitigate 3-part boundary issues by building with 4-part boundaries
  • Incorporation of sweeps or curve geometry as handles for further control
  • Discuss the ability to prove form and  explore modification or Ideation techniques inside Creo to achieve rapid 3D iterations
  • Discuss in detail surface analysis tools and the practical uses with specific examples
  • Leverage robust Creo parametric curves and surfaces using Style tools. Yes, Creo Style can me made parametric in hindsight. 
  • Maintain Draft using surface Sweep functions to control organic forms with Creo Style with respect to the specific manufacturing requirements.
