In Pro E versions: Go to Edit → Scale model from the Main menu at the top.
In Creo versions: Go to Model tab and in the Operations group, expand the arrow and select Scale model.
In ProE versions when you go inside sketcher directly or through any other feature, it first opens the sketch setup window and asks you to select the sketching plane and its orientation. When you are done with the selection it takes you inside sketcher with the specified 2D orientation.
Here is the basic explanation for the two sheet metal options.
Flat Wall → Gives you control over the profile of the wall.
Flange wall → Gives you control over the cross section of the wall.
Just like hatching a draft entity boundary, to make a fill using draft entities you need to have a closed boundary. Like I did while explaining draft entity hatching (See Hatching using draft entities), I take some rectangle and hole entities to explain this. The method is same for both Creo and ProE.
You need to edit drawing setup file (.dtl file) to change the projection type in a drawing. Also you can change it directly using “drawing options” from Pro E drawing itself. The command or syntax to change the projection type is “projection_type”.
To check the weak dimensions, open the model and see the program of the part. To do that, in Pro E WF 5.0 and previous versions, go to TOOLS → PROGRAM from the main menu at the top. In Creo, open the TOOLS tab and expand the MODEL INTENT and then click on the PROGRAM option. (See the image below).You can also search the command “program” in the command search bar on the upper right corner.
This topic explains how to model a spur gear in Pro engineer and Creo without gear relations except for the involute curve.
Normally the following parameters are enough to manufacture a spur gear.
1. Number of Teeth
3. Pressure Angle
Normally we use family tables to control the dimensions of similar parts. Dimensions, parameters and features are the normal components that are controlled here. But sometimes we might need colors to be controlled in the family table. An example of this requirement is where new part numbers are assigned to the parts with every new colors.
Now open the WHITE instance ,Create a new copy feature of all surfaces and apply the white color as explained in the previous page. Name the copy feature as WHITE. Do this only in the instance and don’t forget to save it.
