Interactive Surface Design using Creo Parametric 2.0


Overview

Course Code: TRN-3921
Course Length: 2 Days

Screen Shot 2012-09-23 at 7.56.12 PMIn Creo Parametric, you can create freeform surface models using the Style modeling environment. The Style modeling environment is a spline-based freeform modeler that enables you to combine the parametric feature-based modeling approach with the unconstrained freeform surface modeling approach. This gives you the flexibility to design complex-shaped products in a single modeling environment. The Style tool is available through the Interactive SurfaceDesign Extension (ISDX).

In this course, you will learn how to use the Style environment to create and manipulate freeform curves, freeform surfaces, freeform surface details, and advanced freeform surface models. You will also learn how to integrate style features with other parametric features in design models. After completing this course, you will be well prepared to design complex-shaped freeform surface models in Creo Parametric.

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.
