During our B&W Webinar Week 2021, there are two sessions about " I spy with my little eye" which deal with the visibility of elements in Creo Parametric.    In the first part of this two-part webinar we analyze the different tools and methods that Creo Parametric offers to make items visible or invisible in the graphics area. The organizational layer ‚Body‘, that came out with Creo 7 also impacts the visibility of items. The webinar especially focuses on: Visibility basics of objects and items in Creo Levels of visibility Differences in assemblies, parts and drawings Functionality to drive visibility Layers and layer states Combined states Simplified representations Style states In the second part of this webinar we will discuss some practical examples of the visibility topic and show the related tools and methods. Finally we will show how SMARTUpdate can help to implement and handle the techniques to drive visibility. Have a look at the recordings now:  Part 1: (view in My Videos) Part 2: (view in My Videos)   We hope you like it!    Please feel free to ask questions here.

Here's the next set of tutorials in the series of Creo tips from our expert product managers.   Below you’ll find about 15 minutes of video how-tos to help you improve your CAD proficiency—whether you just started using Creo or you've been using it for years.   Ready to get started?   Make External References Independent of Their Source, by Default   Feature dependencies can be either local or external references. Local references relate to geometry in the model in which they were created. External references (or external dependencies) occur when you reference geometry (parts, subassemblies) outside the model in which they were created.   By default, external references depend on the model containing the geometry being referenced. The external feature depends on to the assembly where it was created, and every time you regenerate the parts or the assembly involved in the external reference, Creo Parametric looks for this feature’s references in the source part of the external reference.   In the tutorial below, Arnaud van de Veerdonk, Creo Product Manager, shows you how to configure Creo Parametric so external feature references are created without a dependency on the source model.   Watch the tutorial:   Create Standard Profile Configurations in Creo AFX   Those working with Creo Advanced Framework Extension (AFX) can quickly assemble, modify, and move profiles, creating joints between profiles, as well as creating, modifying, and copying connector or equipment elements.   In this tutorial, our Creo Product Manager, shows you how to quickly place standard profile configurations into an assembly using Creo AFX.   Here's the tutorial:   Handling Annotation Elements in MBD: 2 Tips   In model-based definition (MBD), getting annotations traditionally requires careful attention. You'd rather spend that time designing. That's why you need any tricks you can find that'll improve your efficiency when you're working with annotations.   In this tutorial, Creo Product Manager, Michael Fridman, shows two tips for working more efficiently with annotation elements in annotation features.   Watch the tips:     For more tips from our experts, watch the Tips from the Creo Masters main page.

Working with model-based definition (MBD)? Here are a few features that simplify the handling of child annotations, based on the status of their parent annotations. You can find them in Creo 6.0 and later. Take a look:   To Exclude Annotations Based on Parent Status   When a parent feature is no longer available, you can exclude child annotations from your design and graphics based on the parent feature’s status and detail option.   Suppression of parent feature using the mini toolbar as a trigger to exclude child annotations. Child annotations may be excluded when: The parent feature is being excluded by simplified representation or family table instance. The parent feature is being suppressed. The parent feature is being deleted. The parent section was deactivated, and its section hatching is also hidden. You can further configure what child annotations you want to exclude from the model. To do this, go to File > Prepare > Model Properties > Detail Options to change child annotations that are excluded using these 4 options: Exclude annotations of deleted: Determines whether to exclude annotations that are children of deleted features. Exclude annotations of excluded: Determines whether to exclude annotations that are children of excluded features. Exclude annotations of section: Determines whether to exclude standalone annotations that are children of section features when the section is not active and not shown Exclude annotations of suppressed: Determines whether to exclude annotations that are children of suppressed features. Image: Situations under which annotations may be excluded For example, to exclude a child annotation in cases where its parent feature is being suppressed, first make sure that the corresponding detail option for this case is set.   Then you can highlight the desired feature, right-click, and select the option to suppress the highlighted feature from the mini toolbar.   This will exclude the child annotations of the suppressed feature and a special glyph will appear for them in the model/detail trees.   To View Annotation Status in the Model Tree   You can easily check the status of your annotations in the Model Tree. Image: MBD annotation statuses display in the Model Tree The following statuses are available: Excluded: Missing References: Modernized annotations that are failing with weak references. Failed: Modernized annotations that are failing with strong references. Unconverted: Legacy nonconverted annotations. Not Available: Non-modernized annotations that cannot be converted into modern annotations.   Search Tool: Look for Annotations Based on Their Statuses   Finally, you can use the Search tool to find annotations based on their statuses (Excluded, Missing References, Failed, Not Available). Here’s how it looks: Image: Search for annotations based on their statuses.   Watch the Demo   See a demonstration of these tips in the video below.     Get More Tips in Your Inbox   To receive tips like this one directly in your inbox, subscribe to our e-newsletter.

Attached to this blog post is a short presentation on the new text and symbol fonts that we are providing in Creo 4.0. Although I'm listing this enhancement under the 2D Detailing area, it is also available in MBD. Any questions or feedback you have related to the new text and symbol fonts should be provided as comments to the blog post. That will be the easiest way for me to keep track of the comments and also be able to provide timely responses to your questions. If you follow this post, you can be notified of those comments as well and be able to learn from what others are asking. I may also periodically update this post to add some new details or information related to this enhancement.   Also, don't forget to follow the main blog post for 2D Detailing - which will have links to other 2D Detailing-related content 2D Detailing Home: Start Here! or the main blog post for MBD Creo 4.0 MBD Home: Start Here!

I'm creating this blog to be the central home page for anyone interested in trying out the new functionality in Creo 4.0 to support Model Based Definition (MBD). Below will be links to other blog posts on specific detailed topics under the general heading of MBD. I'm interested in getting your feedback on all the new stuff, but I also want to try to do this in a somewhat organized fashion. So, you can think of this blog as the top node of a tree that will have a number of branches below it for the various MBD related topics. At the moment, I only have some general   Model Based Design What New MBD: Datum Feature Symbols MBD: Dimensions MBD: Datum Targets MBD: Geometric Tolerances (GTOL) MBD: Standalone Annotations vs. Annotation Features 2D Detailing / MBD: New Text and Symbol Fonts Newly added! Standards-Based Syntax Checking for Annotations
