Training

Hi

just wondering if there were any other training courses available to us mere mortals (Creo Paramatric)

having done the initial and the one day advanced, just wondering what else was available.

thanks

Jeremy

Re: Training

You will be aware of the network of accredited trainers for PTC Creo. A list of trainers with links to contact them is here: http://www.ptc.com/company/community/schools/creo.htm#england and they post their courses here: http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/etd/admin/class_result.jsp

The best trainer/course will depend on what you are looking for. Are you using the Precision LMS for Schools tutorials? They have e-learning courses for most of the techniques in PTC Creo including:

Intro - Fundamentals

Intro - Productivity tools

Advanced modelling
Advanced Assembly

Freestyle surface design

Surfacing

Interactive surface design

Mechanism design

Mechanism simulation

Behavioural modelling

Flexible modelling

Detailing (drawing)

Turning and milling

Mold design

Piping and Cabling

Sheet metal

Most of the the PLMS courses could be delivered as a course but there are alternatives that might be more appropriate for teachers like yourself including;

A subject focus:

Subject area and concepts

Creo tools and techniques

Product Design - Shape creation especially organic shapes, Ergonomics, Surface textures, Controls and Visual displays.

Freestyle, Surfacing, ISDX, Manikin, Render.

Resistant Materials – Geometric shapes and sections. Joining methods, Simple mechanisms, Manufacture. Exploded models, Assembly sequences

Component operations for joints, Sheet metal tools applied to metals and plastics, Kinematic motion, Mechanism connections, Saved views, Animation.

Graphic Products – Point of sale, Packaging,

Sheet metal applied to card and thin plastics. Animation of folding sequence.

Systems and control – Mechanical systems, integration of PCBs.

Mechanism connections, Kinematic motion, Loci of datum points, Mechanism dynamics.

Science – Materials Structures, Mass, Motion, Inertia, Forces, Friction, Coefficient of Restitution, Heat transfer, Vibration, Resonance.

Materials, FEA, Analyses, Measurements, Kinematics, Mechanism Dynamics/

Mathematics – Shape and space, length, area, volume, mass, 2D/3D geometry, Pythagoras, loci, nets, tessellations, symmetry, trajectories.

Sketcher 2D geometry, features 3D geometry, analysis, kinetics, mechanism dynamics.

Or maybe a course focussed on a curriculum project such as:

F1 in Schools – Comprehensive STEM curriculum, software tutorial and manufacturing guide.

GreenpowerSoftware and support. Hands-on workshop and demonstration models.

Gravity Racing – Software and support. Hands-on workshop and demonstration models.

Scalextric4Schools – Comprehensive STEM curriculum, software tutorial, presentations, hands on workshops, manufacturing tutorials and project guide.

And have you considered a course focussed on product development to explore the ways PTC Creo can support exam coursework from initial concept (Creo Sketch) through development using analysis and simulation tools right through to different manufacture methods including 2D profiling, CNC machining and 3D printing.

Re: Training

Tim

Would just like to say on behalf of everyone who has received help and support from you during your time at PTC that you will be sadly missed on this Forum.

Your knowledge of the software combined with your background in D&T has meant that you have been able to solve problems, make supportive comments on peoples work and offer suggestions as to how to develop/improve their use of CREO Parametric.

Kind Regards

All good wishes for new venture.

Re: Training

My hope is that Tim will have MORE time to post in PTC Community, so we can all benefit from his contributions. All the best in your new venture, Tim!
