Surfacing using Creo Parametric 3.0


Course Code: TRN-4506
Course Length: 3 Days

In this course, you will learn how to use various techniques to create complex surfaces with tangent and curvature continuities. You will also learn how manipulate surfaces using editing tools, and analyze surfaces for quality and desired characteristics. In addition, you will learn how to create solid features using the surfaces as references. After completing this course, you will be well prepared to create complex shaped models using surfaces in Creo Parametric., and 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.
