Bart Brejcha of Design Engine started out the event with a presentation featuring Creo 6, What does Advanced Assemblies in Creo mean to you?that was broadcast via Facebook Live Video on the PTC Creo page. This was a demonstration for making large assemblies easier to manage from Shrinkwrap to flexible components and a few other cool new functionality. Bart gives a quick tip in this YouTube clip for mastering what is hiding behind that “right-click button”.

Hamed Yadzi and Eduardo Soto from Tech-30 presented on a couple topics. “How to create augmented reality experiences using Creo Illustrate & Vuforia Studio”  & “MathCAD integration with Creo” , demonstration for reusing your existing CAD data to generate AR experiences in minutes. You can also find this presentation on the PTC Creo Facebook page.

“Curvature Continuity in Surface Modeling” was the presentation topic for Jon Robertson of Clean Slate Design Solutions, who is currently on contract with Harley-Davidson. He spoke about improving aesthetic and increasing manufacturability.

Keith Gargiulo, PTC presented “Taking advantage of exponential change in design – How to use PTC’s tools to get 10X better, not 10% better.” His main topics included AI-driven generative design, Real-time analysis, AR in engineering – sharing and getting feedback, and finding the best manufacturing solution – additive or subtractive/system on a part. These topics illustrate how PTC is incorporating exponential technologies and redefining the expectations of what the flow of work in design will even look like.

Our lunch and learn presentation by Mike Wimberly of Boundary Systems was titled “Enforcing CAD Standards using ModelCHECK Gatekeeper for Windchill”. Mike discussed the processes that help you catch errors before the product makes it down the manufacturing line.

The event was capped off by the last presentation, “Surfaces as tools presented using Creo 6.0?” given by Bart Brejcha of Design Engine.

At the conclusion of the event, attendees were able to meet and network with the future minds of the industry as Mechanical Engineering undergraduate students were displaying their final projects of the year. It was a chance for them to meet CAD professionals that they will soon be working alongside.
