Piping using Creo Parametric 2.0


Course Code: TRN-3910
Course Length: 3 Days

In this course, you will learn how to manually create (non-specification driven) mechanical piping designs using Creo Parametric 2.0. This includes learning how to configure pipelines, how to route pipelines, and how to insert pipe fittings such as valves and reducers. You will also learn how to create specification driven industrial piping designs using Creo Parametric 2.0. This includes learning how to use schematic diagrams created with Creo Schematics to drive 3-D industrial piping designs created within Creo Parametric 2.0.

Finally, you learn how to document piping designs by creating drawings that include BOM
tables, pipe bend tables, and engineering information, as well as how to export ISOGEN
format files for creating pipeline, spool and systems isometric drawings.

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
