Mold Design using Creo Parametric 2.0


Course Code: TRN-3920
Course Length: 2 Days

The Mold application provides the tools to create a mold model from start to finish using the mold design process within Creo Parametric 2.0. In this course, you will learn how to create, modify, and analyze mold components and assemblies. Any changes made to the design model automatically propagate to the mold components and assemblies. You will also how to create final extract components that reflect the geometry of the design model, along with shrinkage considerations, adequate drafting, mold features, and cooling systems. After completing this course, you will have a better
understanding of the mold design process and how to create molded products using the mold design process.

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.
