Creo Machining Tutorial

Hi,

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.

Thanks!

Andrew,

You are building an assembly. Probably what it wants is you to constrain your part to the manufacturing coordinate system.

Help - functional areas - manuacturing is a good place to start and then there is this site and here

Hi Andrew

The first question is, what are you trying to machine, is it turning or milling

Re: Creo Machining Tutorial

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.

Thanks!

Re: Creo Machining Tutorial

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

Re: Creo Machining Tutorial

The wizard is in Expert machinist. I think ?

I would stay away from Masterscam also. A lot of people use it but I am not a fan.

Re: Creo Machining Tutorial

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.
