Insert 3 default datums before first feature

Insert 3 default datums before first feature

I pulled up an old part that has no features other than a single protrusion. It has references to an assembly that no longer exist. I can't break the references unless I can reroute the sketcher orientation picks.

I know this used to be possible. Don't know how in Creo. Anyone?

I don't know if this is the most proper way to do it, but you can model
the datums after the feature (#model; #datums; #offset_planes). Then
afterwards drag the feature so it is after the datums.

Best regards,

Seems like if it's just a single protrusion, you could "Redefine" it, get into the sketch, save the sketch in its own file. Then start up a new part, create a protrusion feature, then import that saved sketch. It'll likely be dimensioned crazily with whatever screwball scheme Creo decides, but you can fix that and move on.

1. Create a default CS.
2. Reorder the CS before the protrusion.
3. Drag the insert line ahead of the protrusion.
4. Click the plane button and you should get the default planes.

Here is another way:



  • supress everything i nthe model

  • create default datum csys

  • create default datum planes

  • resume everything

  • re-order everything after planes.
