Controlling Configuration Changes

Posted on

Creo Parametric offers nearly 1700 different configuration settings. These settings can be set as “defaults” by saving a configuration text file called a config.pro file. While config.pro files are a critical part of most organizations’ CAD setups, many users don’t interface with them on a regular basis and are often uninformed about what they are or […]

The Complications of Configuration Settings

When engineers start using a new CAD tool, often times they will need to reconfigure some of the out-of-the-box settings. Things like default unit systems, template parts, file paths, and even colors can be changed and customized depending on the design, user preferences, or company standards. For Creo Parametric many users will simply open the […]

Assembly Interface Management

Posted on

The bigger a system is, the more complex it is; this is no different for large CAD assemblies. Each component of the assembly is constrained to other components, sub-assemblies, and the top assembly – maintaining these references is referred to as interface management. In a normal design process, it’s not uncommon for component locations to move […]

Why Spec-Driven Piping?

Posted on

In this article, we’re going to cover the Piping module in Creo, a tool that allows users to accurately model complex piping systems. Creo offers two specific design modes when working with the Piping module: Non Spec-Driven Piping and Spec-Driven Piping. While it is possible to model a piping system in either design mode, there […]
