This is a quick video demonstrating how to use the Solidy action in Creo Parametric. It is a quick and easy way to use a datum plane to "cut" an existing model without creating a sketch and an extrude feature which a lot of people do. I like this feature for making quick modifications to the KOP models when you're creating new, custom capabilities for your robot. We all like to use standard parts, but we also want to use them in some unintentional ways at times.
The second part of the video demonstrates how to use the Flexible Modeling Move action. By using the Dimension option, you can add parametric controls to your change and easily iterate your design as it evolves.... (Show more)(Show less)
Creo Parametric includes the capability to share your CAD design with Creo View, a lightweight viewing tool for Creo. The Creo View files are much smaller than the original CAD files and can be easily shared via email or file sharing. Creo View comes with some nice rendering option and the "tumble" capability which makes booth demos and explanations of your CAD design much easier than loading the full CAD model in Creo Parametric. Try it out!... (Show more)(Show less)
This video gives a quick example of how design teams can work together, collaboratively in PTC Creo with PTC Windchill. CAD files can be downloaded by multiple users to multiple work spaces and then updated when other users check in new changes to those CAD files. The out-of-date indicator in PTC Windchill should make it much easier for FIRST teams working in PTC Creo to work together and always have access to the latest CAD file being created and updated by their team mates. ...

In this tutorial you will learn about the impact and how to create and use import profiles in PTC Creo 3.0. This video shows how to create an import profile including some impactful options. PTC Creo 3.0 has the ability to use format specific profiles for CATIA, Siemens NX and SolidWorks. ... (Show more)(Show less)
The sweep tools were consolidated into a single dashboard in Creo 1.0 with an internal sketch for the section to be swept, and an external sketch for the trajectory to sweep along. We enabled embedding the trajectory sketch into the sweep feature in Creo 2.0 M080 and Creo 3.0, so that a user can optimize the regeneration of a pattern which uses trajectory sketch dimensions....

Learn some key productivity tips in PTC Creo Parametric relative to Pro/ENGINEER. Learn about how sketch planes are constrained by default for all sketch based features and how to manipulate the sketch plane orientation and viewing direction. Learn a quick shortcut to select background geometry in the sketch. Learn how to use dimension draggers in the sketch and in feature preview to instantly isolate a single dimension of the sketch and control how the sketcher solver dynamically updates the 2D geometry....
