Working with Images and Decals in Creo Parametric

Lots of people have asked about how to create a 3D model from an image or use an image in their 3D model. This is a rather big topic to cover, but I'll try give you a few options and you can explore from there.

Creating a Sketch from an Image

If you'd like to create a sketch from an image, check out this document2015 First World Championship Creo Modeling Challenge #2 - FIRST Logo Sketch‌. It does not give away the full process, but it will get your mind thinking about how to create an accurate sketch using an image as a reference. Most of the people working on this challenge needed a little help with the View, Model Display, Images settings to get the image located and sized on a datum plane, but after that they were off to the races. Give it a shot.

 

Once you have the sketch created, you can make any 3D geometry you need from it, but keep in mind you might need to break up the image into multiple sketches based on the desired geometry.

 

Using an Image as a Label/Decal

You can place a decal on your model by adding the image to a new color. Below is a great video showing how to do this. Pay attention to the way he edits the assigned model color and makes changes to the size and position of individual occurrences.
