3D-Cut KE 'Spiral Volume Draw-KE'

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.


We are part of the tool industry. I am a member of our design and construction.


2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?


Creo Parametric 7.0.1


3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.


  • currently only possible with simple geometries
  • Not stable with certain parameter combinations although all boundary conditions are met
  • You can see attached a model matrix (.xlsx) with unsuccesfull parameter combinations



4. What is the use case for your organization?


We want to have realistic 3D CAD models of cutting tools for production-ready design and transfer of production-ready target data to subsequent processes such as test planning.


Necessary would be 3D geometries as freeform rotation through an existing geometry as a subtraction to be able to pull along a spiral


5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?


Set-up time reduction and minimisation of bad parts
