Creo 4.0 Framework custom tube profiles

Hello all, I am currently on a SAE team and we are learning to use the Framework extension. I am wondering if there is any sort of way to create custom tube profiles? We are using various sizes such as 1"x.095", 1"x.065" and 1"x.045" for our chassis. I checked the metric libraries and haven't found anything that size either. Thanks.

Re: Creo 4.0 Framework custom tube profiles

Hi @maddog859,

You can achieve this by performing the following actions:

  • Create a customization directory to prevent your files from being lost after a Creo update. For detailed info see the chapter in the help (https://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/r7.0/usascii/#page/advanced_framework%2FAbout_Saving_Adva...).
    In a few words
    • Copy customization dir to save location
    • Set config option “CUSTOMIZATION_PATH“ to that location.
    • Modify your beam in the customization directory
  • Copy the profile that you want to customize from the parts location to the custom directory.

    • From:
      C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 7.0.1.0\Common Files\afx\parts\profiles\steel_beams_inch
      To (Example):
      C:\temp\customization\parts\profiles\steel_beams_inch
  • Open pipe.tab with notepad++ (Recommended Plugin: Elastic Tabstops)

Add your custom beam:
SEL_STRING = Name in the Framework user interface
BUW_SIZE = Parameter value of the model
DM = Diameter
T = Thickness
