Creo Tool Design is an optional module for Creo Parametric that provides the tools to simulate the mold design process. It provides the functionality to build parting lines and parting surfaces and extract punch, cavities and slides. All the components extracted are associative to the design model and hence automatically update to the changes.
Creo Tool Design course has been developed with great emphasis on the practical application of the software to solve real world problems. The self-study course starts from the very basic concepts and teaches advanced techniques step by step. After completing the course, an Engineer or Designer will be able to create the advanced parting geometry, split the mold into Punch and Cavity halves, create Sliders and Lifters, define multi-cavity molds, create runners, gates, sprue, cold slugs, create cooling channel and check their clearance from neighboring surfaces.
The training material is divided into following sections.
- Parting Surfaces
- Sliders and Lifters
- Multi Cavity Molds
- Feed System and Molding
- Water Line and Ejector Pins
- Mold Analysis
- Mold Layout and EMX
Each section is accompanied with exercises to practice the concepts learned. CAD models are accompanied for the user practice. Finished models are also supplied to compare the work done by the user.
