Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

Re: Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

Another Unix feature. This is somehing that goes on my nerves. See attached. Is it really "Not Responding" or is it working on something? I know the answer but there should be a better way to manage this.Frozen.png

Take a look at the CPU load while I am wating for this STEP file to open:

cpu_load.png

I have 4 cores CPU and only 14% of load on them! I know Creo is using only 1 core but this tells me that Creo is not optimized at all for Windows OS.

And, this is the CPU load when Creo finally opened STEP file:

cpu_idle.png

They should put some HARD work on this.

This one is a big one.

Wouldn't be nice, when you choose "Select component item", all other planes, axes and points to become invisible, so you can easily select features or datums from inserted detail? Then, when you choose "Select assembly item" if you hold CTRL key you can select detail (either in model tree or in model view) which will show datums only for selected one or if you do not hold CTRL key everything is shown like on this picture?

I wouldn't call it a "Unix feature", since I've seen Window Explorer (explorer.exe) behaving exactly the same way. More like it's "Windows feature" and I don't think it has much to do with Creo itself, when you can get almost every application to "stop responding" like that.

Hi Brian

Weld like solid feature is big challenge for me and one for my customer now. This could be useful for process where is necessary to show removing materials after welding.

Symbols are stroke rendered in drawings - how about CREO using a True Type font for GD&T and other symbols eg Ø

Easy selection and editing of NOTES in drawings

to HIGHLIGHT a note you have to click exactly on one of the LINES of text

between the letters is OK, between the lines is NOT, end of lines NOT

once its highllighted you get a green rectangle around the text

but then you again cant just click anywhere in the rectangle to drag it - above rules apply

Whats worse, if you click in any of the NOT regions you end up deselecting the Note and

selecting the VIEW behind, you then have to get out of the VIEW context. But if you are

zoomed in, you dont know you have selected the VIEW and on it goes.

At first I thought I was a klutz but when you disect it its the programmer thats the klutz

This interface behaviour is very unforgiving - its basic low level stuff and its not right !

The basic code that governs this behaviour needs reviewing.

1: Warp tool needs a careful review. The tool needs significant upgrades on control of axis and full wrap warps fail to meet on the ends. If this tool is meant to one day replace Spinal bend or Toroidal Bends, control and accuracy must be improved significantly.

2: Allow a constant twist angle with the Warp tool. As implemented, the twist maintains a normal and has a graduated deform. Although useful as a real world deformation, it misses the mark when a constant twist is required. Applications include features as helical gears or even screw threads from a simple extrude.

yes some simple application or module to make all sorts of gears and sprockets, Siemens NX has it by default built into it.(which should be in base package of creo)

here we have to keep UDF. no fresh gears for us .

That would be an optional exten$ion

Re: Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

1.ability to fill/hatch wrapped sketches....our work sometimes is related to medial equipments..where we need wrapped sketches for "dose numbering"....at present we have to manually fill the wrapped sketches in detailing after using the use edge option.

2. and the "use edge" option in detailing does not have "loop" or "chain" selection option as in sketcher mode. this if i want to solid fill that wrapped sketch in creo drawing.

i have attached some creo files with this, to get you to try this on you own.

there are two part files and one assembly file.
