Flexible Modeling using Creo Parametric 3.0

Our team of Certified Trainers conduct regular classes as well as on-site or customised training upon request. We use Certified material from PTC for our Creo training, and all our trainers also go through a Certification process to ensure good quality training. In addition to our Scheduled Training classes at our facility, we can help you to organise Web-Based Training / set up a Proficiency Evaluation /customise software / conduct classes on-site. Scheduled below are Creo core classes.

  • Course Code: TRN-4511
  • Course Length: 1 Days
  • Date: Jan 19 2018 - Jan 19 2018
  • Time: 9.30am-5.00pm
  • Address: 305 Alexandra Road, #05-01/02 Vantage Automotive Centre, Singapore 159942


In this course, you will learn how to use flexible modeling tools to edit existing geometry on parametric models. The flexible modeling process typically involves initially selecting model surfaces, then refining the selected surface set using smart selection tools, and finally modifying the selected geometry by applying transformation tools, patterning tools, or symmetry tools., 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.
