In this course, you will learn how to utilize the variety of functionality enhancements in Creo Parametric 4.0. You will be introduced to user interface enhancements such as the mini toolbar and the new geometry selection filter. You will examine the Part Modeling enhancements to features such as negative depth, extrude features with offset depth, and new midplane datum plane type. You will learn about the new Sketcher enhancements, including the clipping the model, customizing line thickness, the new constraint appearance, and using sketch references. You will investigate the new Assembly capabilities such as automatic representations, mirror symmetry, and assigning materials. You will examine the new Datum Feature Symbol, Datum Target, Geometric Tolerance, and Driven Dimension functionality and workflows for 2-D drawings and review various detailing enhancements. You will learn the new Freestyle surfacing enhancements including using multiple objects, importing OBJ files, and using N-Gon faces, as well as new Style enhancements such as G3 connections, creating periodic and nonperiodic closed curves, and drop curves. You will learn to use the updated tools in Sheetmetal mode such as Twist Walls, Edge Bend Relief, and Close Corner edge treatment, as well as the enhancement for utilizing dependency control with punch and die forms. Finally, you will investigate the new Assembly capabilities such as the built-in hardware library and the Intelligent Fastener extension, as well as enhanced Assembly functionality such as heterogeneous (multi-CAD) assembly and the Design Exploration extension.
At the end of each module, you will complete a set of review questions to reinforce critical topics from that module. At the end of the course, you will complete a course assessment in PTC University Proficiency intended to evaluate your understanding of the course as a whole.
