Making Sense of Confounding Mouse Clicking in Pro/Engineer and Creo Parametric

Clicking in Creo

Creo Parametric (formerly called Pro/Engineer) is different from other computer programs. Learning how to navigate the screen and make selections with the mouse can be very confusing for a beginner to the program, even if he or she has 3D modeling experience with other software packages. This book is meant to help you speed up the learning process from the very beginning. Advanced selection methods and other tricks and tips are included that will also be helpful for advanced users. Author's introduction: Greetings, Clicking the mouse in Creo is not like clicking the mouse in other programs. Some clicking sequences for the program are next to impossible to discover by trial and error. So, in these pages I'll focus on how to use the mouse to get done what you want to get done. I hope this book will short-circuit some of the inevitable hours of frustration all of us endure as we learn to tame this powerful program. Keep on clickin', Bailey Briscoe Jones

Creo Parametric 2.0 Tutorial and Multimedia DVD

Creo Parametric 2.0 Tutorial and Multimedia DVD

The eleven lessons in this tutorial introduce you to the design capabilities of Creo Parametric 2.0. The tutorial covers the major concepts and frequently used commands required to advance from a novice to an intermediate user level. Major topics include part and assembly creation, and creation of engineering drawings. Also illustrated are the major functions that make Creo Parametric a parametric solid modeler. These topics are further demonstrated in the video files that come with every book. Although the commands are presented in a click-by-click manner, an effort has been made, in addition to showing/illustrating the command usage, to explain why certain commands are being used and the relation of feature selection and construction to the overall part design philosophy. Simply knowing where commands can be found is only half the battle. As is pointed out numerous times in the text, creating useful and effective models of parts and assemblies requires advance planning and forethought. Moreover, since error recovery is an important skill, considerable time is spent exploring the created models. In fact, some errors are intentionally induced so that users will become comfortable with the “debugging” phase of model creation. At the end of each lesson is a short quiz reviewing the new topics covered in that chapter. Following the quiz are several simple "exercise" parts that can be created using new commands taught in that lesson. In addition to these an ongoing project throughout the book is also included. This project consists of several parts that are introduced with the early lessons and finally assembled at the end.

Typically, students enter their first CAD course with a broad range of abilities both in spatial visualization and computer skills. The approach taken here is meant to allow accessibility to persons of all levels. These lessons, therefore, were written for new users with no previous experience with CAD, although some familiarity with computers is assumed. The tutorials in this textbook cover the following topics: Introduction to the program and its operation The features used in part creation Modeling utilities Creating engineering drawings Creating assemblies and assembly drawings

Mechanism Design and Analysis Using PTC Creo Mechanism 7.0

Mechanism Design and Analysis Using PTC Creo Mechanism 7.0

Mechanism Design and Analysis Using PTC Creo Mechanism 7.0 is designed to help you become familiar with Mechanism, a module of the PTC Creo Parametric software family, which supports modeling and analysis (or simulation) of mechanisms in a virtual (computer) environment. Capabilities in Mechanism allow users to simulate and visualize mechanism performance. Using Mechanism early in the product development stage could prevent costly redesign due to design defects found in the physical testing phase; therefore, it contributes to a more cost effective, reliable, and efficient product development process. The book is written following a project-based learning approach and covers the major concepts and frequently used commands required to advance readers from a novice to an intermediate level. Basic concepts discussed include model creation, such as body and joint definitions; analysis type selection, such as static (assembly) analysis, kinematics and dynamics; and results visualization. The concepts are introduced using simple, yet realistic, examples. Verifying the results obtained from computer simulation is extremely important. One of the unique features of this textbook is the incorporation of theoretical discussions for kinematic and dynamic analyses in conjunction with simulation results obtained using Mechanism. The theoretical discussions simply support the verification of simulation results rather than providing an in-depth discussion on the subjects of kinematics and dynamics.

Creo Manufacturing 2.0 For Designers and Machinists

Creo Manufacturing 2.0 For Designers and Machinists

The book is intended for those who want to learn Manufacturing aspects with the help of CAM software. Creo has a hidden CAM power that we have tried to show through the book. This book has explained all the software aspects with the practical manufacturing knowledge. If you find any kind of difficulty or any type of help, you can straight away write to me at [email protected] I would be very glad to help you.

Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using Creo Simulate 3.0

Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using Creo Simulate 3.0

The primary goal of Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using Creo Simulate 3.0 is to introduce the aspects of finite element analysis (FEA) that are important to the engineers and designers. Theoretical aspects of finite element analysis are also introduced as they are needed to help better understand the operations. The primary emphasis of the text is placed on the practical concepts and procedures of using Creo Simulate in performing Linear Statics Stress Analysis; but the basic modal analysis procedure is covered. This text is intended to be used as a training guide for both students and professionals. This text covers Creo Simulate 3.0 and the lessons proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic truss elements to generating three-dimensional solid elements from solid models. This text takes a hands-on exercise intensive approach to all the important Finite Element Analysis techniques and concepts. This textbook contains a series of twelve tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning FEA users to Creo Simulate. The basic premise of this book is the more designs you create using Creo Simulate, the Better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons.
