Tutorials for CoCreate Modeling PE

Tutorials for CoCreate Modeling PE

I would like some resources for getting started with CoCreate Modeling PE besides the PTC.com pages. I am a university student working on a formula-style racing car, and would like to use CoCreate for designing parts when I do not have access to the commonly used SolidWorks on campus.

 

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I am registered but cannot find the CoCreate Modeling PE user area or the tab "training"

Can you give me more detailed instructions on how to find the webcasts.

Hello Ivan,

You'll find it at www.ptc.com/products/cocreate/modeling-personal-edition-3-0

Re: Tutorials for CoCreate Modeling PE

I, too, have been frustrated as I try to learn CoCreate. I cannot find any real tutorials beyond the "Quick Start" videos available in the program. Those are well done tutorials, but certainly are not the type of thing that gives you a strong understanding of how to do things.

All of the links given in the discussion so far are just to model files, and not the tutorial itself. I have spent hours trying to figure out just basic getting started stuff. I have spent over an hour trying to find basic tutorial information about how to use the program.

Another thing that has confused me has bee that there seem to be two separate places on PTC's communities for CoCreate discussion. One seems to be just the personal edition. But, for some reason when I am at one community, I cannot see how to get to the other community.

By the way, thank you PTC for havig staff to answer so many of the questions here. Most companies just leave it to the users themself to post answers to these kinds of discussion boards.

Does anybody know if the model files for these tutorials are available as .pkg files for the commercial version of CoCreate rather than .pk2 for the PE? I've been searching for these without any success so would be very grateful if anybody could provide me with the link

Cheers,
