Creo 3.0 Student Edition: Cable Wiring

Hi guys,

I need urgent help with Creo 3.0 Student Edition. I am a student at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremnberg in Germany and downloaded, installed and registered correctly the software so far. For my master thesis I need to make a 3D-draft oft two cable harnesses. According to your website Creo 3.0 should be able to do that.

But after I have started the programm, I can only choose a new draft type of (volume corpus, sheet and mass element). Cable harnesses are written in grey (please see attachment), so I can t select it.

What can I do to choose that type? I ve downloaded the correct license from my university, there was only one. And that was automatically created during installation/registration.

Please help

Thanks

Best regards

Tom

Hi,

I have practically no knowledge concerning HARNESS functionality, but I can provide you some information ...

1.]

launch Creo and then click File > Help > System Information. Scroll INFORMATION WINDOW to see Configured Option Modules section and look for HARNESS options inside the list of modules. I guess that you will not find it ... this means that your license has limited functionality concerning HARNESS functionality. Maybe the limitation is related to harness drawings, I do not know exactly.

To be able to create harness part, you have to:

  • open/create assembly
  • activate Applications tab
  • select Cabling button
  • click Create Harness button
  • do what you need ...

Hi,

Student license does not contain Harness module. You need to ask your university CAD administrator for Academic license.

Hi,

Thanks for your fast answer. According to that picture (attachment) the Student Edition should include the Harness Module...

Or is it a wrong info?
