I just learned about the creo machining feature and I am curious how to use it. If I have just a regular .prt file where do I start? The NC manufacturing seems to demand a .asm file and not a .prt file to import. I would appreciate if anyone could point me in the direction of a tutorial or reading material.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I will be doing 3 axis milling, I have a Haas arriving in about a month. I am experimenting with something simple to learn how the creo machining works, I just made a .prt file with a cube, and then a smaller cube protruding from the top of that cube (a very simple part). I figured it would just be good to learn how to do something simple, then try to do my complex parts.
Right now I am have followed the NC-Wizard to insert my part, create stock, and now it wants me to constrain, and I am at a loss of what to do here.
I have never used the NC-wizard and would recomend you use nc manufacturing if you have the option or a 3rd party software( NOT MASTERCAM ) if you have complex parts
Alright thanks, I will probably do a trial of one of the cam programs once my mill gets here, but I figured I might as well try to figure creo out, especially since I already own it.
This tutorial will give you all the basics of Pro/manufacturing at a reasonable price.
Now there are a few e-books:
The e-learning libraries from PTC are a great way to start if you have the time to go through them all. You can access them at your convenience. It is well worth the cost.
Yes, I agree with that, the e-learning libraries are good. But, if you want to go the next level, I recommend books of mine. And in addition, free use of the real tools and machines for simulation and lot of more professional way to work.
