In this tutorial you learn how to define constraints in a non-Cartesian coordinate system. The advantage of doing this is that you can constrain radial, axial, or angle of twist degrees of freedom which cannot easily be accomplished using an X, Y, and Z reference.... (Show more)(Show less)
In this Creo Simulate tutorial, I will demonstrate how to use the Beam tool to create a structural truss. This tool allows you to define curves from pre-defined sketches as members of the truss and also allows the user to create common structural shaped cross sections such as I beams for the members. Then, I set the necessary constraints and forces to run a static analysis on the truss.... (Show more)(Show less)
