<html><head></head><body><p><span style="line-height: 1.5em; font-size: 12pt;">If you’re working with a reference part in mold assembly that contains holes, you need to cap them before you split the mold. </span></p><p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In this post, a PTC expert describes how to cap the holes in Creo 3.0.</span></p><p></p><p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><span style="line-height: 1.5em;"><em>First, hide the workpiece so you can collect surfaces on the reference part efficiently.
