Cabling using Creo Parametric 2.0


Course Code:  TRN-3909
Course Length: 3 Days

Cabling using Creo Parametric 2.0

In this course, you will learn how to create 3-D electrical harnesses using Creo Parametric 2.0. This includes using Creo Schematics to pass schematic diagram information into the 3-D harness designs created within Creo Parametric 2.0. You will learn how to route electrical harnesses both with and without schematic diagram information, create flattened harnesses for manufacturing, and document harness designs by creating flattened harness drawings that include customized BOM tables and wire list information. A significant portion of the course is devoted to a cabling design project, during which you will create a full wiring harness with minimal “picks and clicks” to solidify techniques learned previously in the course.

After successfully completing the course, you will be able to create 3-D electrical harnesses and associated manufacturing deliverables using Creo Parametric 2.0. Optionally, you may wish to attend the Introduction to Creo Schematics course. This will enable a full understanding of the schematic design process used to provide schematic data for the creation of electrical harness assemblies in Creo Parametric 2.0.

At the end of each module, you will complete a set of review questions to reinforce critical topics from that module. At the end of the course, you will complete a course assessment in Pro/FICIENCY intended to evaluate your understanding of the course as a whole.
