Check out this great video on Creo Surfacing from PTC Application Engineers!
Presenters: Mark DeCraene (Generalist Application Engineer, Principal), Lino Tozzi (Technical Specialist, Fellow) and Ryan Butcher (Technical Specialist, Fellow)
To dive deeper into the subject, check out PTC University.
Iam interested in attending these sessions, could you please let me know how do I participate live?
Question from Anonymous: What version of Creo is required for multi-body modeling?
Answer: MultiBody is in Creo 7.0 and 8.0
Question from Anonymous: Are those automotive class A surfaces?
Answer: Yes, the prior surfaces shown were Class A surfaces.
Question from Anonymous: Will the copied curves update parametrically with the original sketches?
Question from Dan: Has style been included with all Creo/ProE packages, or only certain ones? Specifically we still have Enterprise SE licenses.
Answer: It is in your Enterprise SE bundles. It is also in the Engineer III bundle, the Creo Design Advanced Plus bundle and can be added as a floating license.
Question from Ian: Is sketching on a surface possible in Creo 4? That's what we are using at the moment but moving to Creo 7 this year.
Answer: Yes. You can do everything here in ISDX (Style) in Creo 4.0. As far as all other capabilities, you can do everything in Creo 4.0 except for the MultiBody which was first available in Creo 7.0.
Question from Jon: Is there a controllable tolerance deviation for approximate in the the copy command?
Answer: It adheres to the part tolerance and, if you are in a sketch, it would take on the sketch accuracy.
Question from Jon: Is there a function to help match scanned data?
Answer: Yes, with Reverse Engineering Extension, you can turn a point cloud into surfaces. With the Computer Aided Verification tool, you can compare to a point cloud.
Question from Paul: Why did you have to make a copied surface before you made the offset?
Answer: You can offset individual solid surface but sometimes it is easier to make a quilt (made of multiple surfaces) first and then offset it.
