More Than Just Creo Training

At Design Engine, we are incredibly passionate about learning! We believe that good design should transcend software, which is why we focus on fundamental design skills and helping engineers and designers adopt a robust and resilient modeling workflow. Using these design skills, our Creo training programs help teams approach problems with new perspectives to facilitate your learning process.

Our workflow-oriented Creo consulting (you call it Creo Training) facilitates the learning process, going beyond the Creo software itself, and diving into design problems, allowing your team to learn quickly and efficiently. Design Engine’s passionate and knowledgeable staff have decades of design and engineering experience and are able to share with you unique ways to solve problems using tools both within and outside of the software, facilitating a rewarding learning experience. 

All of Design Engine’s Creo training workshops utilize customized training material. We offer training at your facility in our facility, you can even attend remotely as travel restrictions are upon us.  It’s one of many ways we differ from software vendors that sell software and are offering Creo training from a book. By providing customized Creo training programs with an engaging focus on core-modeling skills with respect to the manufacturing process, we put real-world design problems into context. What’s more: by customizing these packages to your team’s immediate design needs, we teach your team how to overcome problems in the software, current design obstacles and solve relevant problems. Your project is near completion on the last day we are together.

Rather than offer typical CAD training from a book, Design Engine facilitates your learning process with problems to solve.  Humans simply learn better when in context to manufacturing, such as die-casting, plastic part design or forging.  Also, learn to solve problems with tools like surfaces.  Or surface modeling in context to how light reflects off geometry and/or ergonomics.  Manufacturing with respect to sheet metal  & FEA weeks using your assemblies. Our consulting teams set you up with many other techniques such as successes including better ways of quoting a project, approaching and defining the project scope, modeling tips and tricks, making changes and adjustments within projects, cohesive communication strategies between designers and engineers, innovations with new manufacturing processes, managing ECN’s and storing project files.  This type of learning simply can not be stamped out.

We love to learn here at Design Engine, and we believe teams learn more efficiently when theories are applied to real-world scenarios. We aren’t a training facility: we are workflow efficiency experts, taking teams to the next level with a comprehensive learning experience. 

"Design Engine creates more effective teams through comprehensive 3D modeling techniques. We turn your team members into super advocates of the design tools."

As with most 3D CAD software, Pro/ENGINEER – now called Creo – has changed quite a bit over the past 20 years. One of the biggest obstacles we witness is that designers and engineers tend to use the software as they learned long ago.  We can all be set in our ways of doing things which is where we can share different ways of getting the job done.  At Design Engine, we help manufacturers, engineers, and designers gain a different perspective by presenting new ways to think about and explore design iterations. We don’t teach Creo, we teach ways of thinking which, allows your team to become more efficient designers and engineers. 

Our workshops don’t just solve design challenges, but they change the way designers think, setting off a chain reaction: fostering collaborative relationships, exploring a new design process, facilitating better communication, encouraging problem-solving, and, most importantly, challenging mechanical engineers and product designers to grow and innovate.  As designers or engineers, we are always learning.    Let us empower your team with techniques to learn faster and smarter.  Over the years, the services we provide have been called many things: training, workshops, empowerment, education, consulting. We call it betterment.

"It's not how fast you model, but how fast you can change the model twenty times, that makes you an expert."

Don’t confuse the Design Engine methodology with those who sell the software.  Value added resellers of software have a primary mission to sell software & a secondary mission to conduct Creo training.  We don’t use a book, or teach menu clicks.  We leverage problems to solve which makes learning more rewarding. We create experts and efficient teams by solving problems using the software.  Let us help you design more efficiently to work smarter, not harder!
