The Creo Parametric User Interface: A Quick Introduction

Cat McClintock in the blog “The Creo Parametric User Interface: A Quick Introduction” discusses about When you sign up for Creo training, one of the first areas of the Creo Parametric Interface that you’ll learn about is the Graphics Window…. Continue Reading →

Did you know Stochastic Lattices are improved in Additive Manufacturing in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, the main uses for Stochastic lattices are medical implants, chemical processes, filtration, sound absorption, shock absorption, and so on. First implementation of stochastic lattices uses the Voronoi diagram algorithm. This is a common algorithm when you… Continue Reading →

Did you know about improvements to Custom Cells in Additive Manufacturing in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, you can create lattices from a custom cell that is based in a non-BREP (boundary representation) geometry. Lattice cell part can contain solid geometry, quilts, and curves. Lattice that results is created using these elements, according… Continue Reading →

CAE Simulation: How It Works and Why It Matters

Dave Martin in the blog “CAE Simulation: How It Works and Why It Matters” discusses about Computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation works by using computers to divide a 3D model of a product into smaller elements; applying loads and boundary conditions… Continue Reading →

Implementing Simulation-Driven Product Development with CAD Simulation

This blog is published by NXREV and in this blog “Implementing Simulation-Driven Product Development with CAD Simulation” Author discusses about if you, like so many manufacturing companies, are getting into model-based design (MBD), you realize how critical it is to… Continue Reading →

Have you tried display filters for Geometry Representations in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, you can easily control the display of geometry representations by selecting or clearing the following check boxes: Boundary (B-rep)—Solid bodies and quilts Mixed—All geometry that is not boundary representation (B-rep) geometry such as facet, simplified, and… Continue Reading →

11 Digital Thread Use Cases

Molly Isadora Sadoff in the blog “11 Digital Thread Use Cases” discusses about spend on digital transformation has intensified within the past three years and sees no sign of slowing down. A recent survey by PTC found companies are investing… Continue Reading →

Do you know how to maintain alignment and spacing for Composite GTOLS with additional text in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, there is a new option for spacing alignment in the Additional Text dialog box. Additional Text dialog box is available from the Geometric Tolerance tab. This is useful when you need to include additional text on… Continue Reading →

A Quick Guide to Semantic References in Creo MBD

Dave Martin in the blog “A Quick Guide to Semantic References in Creo MBD” discusses about Semantic references for model-based definition (MBD) are CAD model surfaces that are included in the 3D annotations that explain how a part or assembly… Continue Reading →

Have you tried repeat region support in Drawings for Multibody Parts in Creo 7?

List body information in tables for repeat regions. When working with the multibody design method, you can also list all the body-related information in repeat regions tables, such as body parameters, material information, names, and so on. Tips: To show the body material information, it is… Continue Reading →

Do you know that its easier to see intersecting components and bodies in Parts, Assemblies, Drawings in Creo 7?

If you have a part with interfering bodies or an assembly with interfering components, you might want to see the part or assembly correctly in HLR mode. Use the following configuration options: •hlr_adv_interference_check_prt—Set to yes to accurately remove hidden lines… Continue Reading →

Have you tried Configuration Option to control the display of set Datum Planes in Creo 7?

With Creo 7, the new configuration option allows you to determine whether the datum plane display toggle will also control display of set datum planes in the model environment. The new config.pro option will define the behavior of the datum… Continue Reading →

Have you tried place multiple normal leader or tangent leader annotations in Drawings in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, when annotating a drawing per the standards, there might be a requirement for multiple normal or tangent leaders that are coming out of a single annotation. The command Add Leader provides the flexibility so you can… Continue Reading →

Do you know how to control length of intersected Contours beyond intersection point in Drawings in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, you can control the default length of the intersecting projected contours of outlines, that are beyond the point of intersection. This provides consistency and is in compliance with detailing standards. Set the detail option, intersected_lines_delta, to… Continue Reading →

Do you know how to control snapping of Leader Annotation for Normal and Tangent Placement in Creo 7?

Starting with Creo 7, when you place a leader annotation on an edge, the normal or tangent leaders appear as soon as the cursor position is beyond the snapping angle threshold. You may turn off this snapping in order to… Continue Reading →
