Creo Sheetmetal Training
Course Duration: 16 Hours
[accordion autoclose=false openfirst=true clicktoclose=true]
[accordion-item title=”Overview +” state=open]This comprehensive suite of Creo sheetmetal design tools helps users create features such as walls, bends, punches, notches, forms, and relief features. Using a variety of Y and K factor bend allowance calculations, designers can create flat patterns of the designs. The result is parametric, fully associative solid models of sheet metal parts and assemblies. Students have the option to customize this course to fit project requirements.[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title=”Projects +” state=closed]Several brackets, deep drawn form, and combination. Curriculum can be combined with Pro/Surface tools for automobile sheet metal functions or for smaller battery contacts to mating components such as sheet metal boxes to house a computer power supply.
Pro/Sheetmetal, like Creo, allows flexibility in design. Changes are made and updated parametrically throughout the entire design process[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title=”Prerequisites +” state=closed]400 hours minimum experience with Creo and a willingness to learn.[/accordion-item]

- Form features and making drawings with flattened geometries.
[accordion-item title=”Discussion +” state=closed]
- Discuss differences between Creo thin features and Pro/Sheetmetal.
- Discuss designing sheet metal parts.
- Flatten out the part to visualize design and manufacturing needs.
- Make Drawings of the sheet metal part, incorporating Dimensions, Bend Order tables, Flat Patterns and fully designed parts.
- Discuss order of feature creation.
- Discuss why rips are important with respect to stretching.
- Discuss warn out tooling and how to compensate using Bend Tables.
- Discuss whats new in Creo 5.0
- Discuss modeling techniques such as starting out with non sheet metal models and converting to sheet metal later to take advantage of shell features.
