I've seen tutorials for creating cycloidal or epicycloidal using SolidWorks & Blender. Can anyone tell me where to find a tutorial or instructions on how to do this with CREO 2.0?

You'll probably also want to construct one lobe and pattern if you're looking to create a solid. You may also need to adjust the angle used in the equations.
