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)
