13. Multibody – What are these Construction bodies?
Hello all and welcome to another blog post in this multibody blog series.
Todays topic: Construction bodies!
Construction body are a pretty unique, powerful concept in Creo’s multibody implementation. As such it is really important to know about them and to understand how to use them.
So, what are construction bodies?
Construction bodies are bodies that are used for the design of your model, but do not contribute to the final geometry or mass.
That means that similar on how you used quilts in the past to create additional geometry helping with the construction of your design, you can now do the very same with solid geometry. The construction attribute of these bodies will then help you to differentiate that geometry and automatically exclude it. Excluding them from mass properties is just one out of more than a dozen workflows where they are treated special. You will find more details in the video.
