Level 11: Creo Import Data Doctor

Level 11: Creo Import Data Doctor

Course Duration: 16 hours (2 days)

Tuition: $1,000 USD

Overview: You used to be able to bring in IGES data before wildfire 3.0 Lean to manage import geometry from various 3D software packages such as Alias Studio, Rhino 3D, and/or SolidWorks. IDD (Import Data Doctor) can be offered for Wildfire 4.0 – 5.0 as well.

Note: Import Data Doctor is a two day intensive workshop. We do not schedule this class often, so you must call Design Engine to schedule: 312.226.8339.

Prerequisite: Some Surface modeling skills are helpful

Topics:

  • Basic work flow, scope, and purpose of IDD
  • New workflow for Zip Gaps
  • Learn to delete and rebuild Boundary Blends inside IDD
  • Activate vs deactivate
  • Merge workflow changed inside IDD and how to do so
  • Dealing with more simple imports and task based repair of IGES or STEP geometry using IDD
  • Complex imports
  • Coincident surfaces
  • Define Gaps, Repair Gaps, and Closing gaps
  • Gaps/Slivers and how to manage them using Find
  • Tangent inside IDD
  • Modify, Extrapolate, Align, Transform, and Replace
  • Move Vetex
  • Learn to make portions of your import geometry parametric
  • Freezing entities vs managing what changes during manipulations
  • Learn to manage sheet metal imports, Convert, Combine, and Extrude (convert non parametric data to parametric features)

Discussion:

  • Discuss various types of data for import such as Points, Facet Data, DXF, STEP and IGES
  • User Interface differences in Creo vs pre Wildfire 4.0
  • Converting surfaces to cylinders and extrusions (Pseudo-Feature)
  • Display options for Frozen, Wireframe, Vertices ,and Tangent Constraints
  • IDD with respect to converting Sheet metal IGES / STEP parts from Creo then to Creo Sheet metal then ultimately to a flattened state
  • Basic workflow for generic repair vs more difficult repairs
  • Tips and Tricks
  • Discuss workflow for making Import geometry parametric

Tutorials:

  • Manage basic import and rebuild using tools outside of DataDoctor
  • Basic import and rebuild using tools inside DataDoctor
  • Sheet metal repair
