In Creo 2.0, how do you stop the screen and the assembly/model tree from “creeping” out of view when doing multiple replacement editing?
Joel Sanders, Flowserve Corp.
Answered by: Zack Lyon
Joel, I am pretty sure that you can “pin” your menu. Get CREO 7?
Mine doesn’t do that. Creeping could be related to something like a Mouseball that is not “Zero” ed out. My 3DConnexion device will do that though.
If you are using a 3D mouse, unplug, reset and retry.
Can you explain some of the benefits (and drawbacks if any) to creating and using “start parts”?
(please provide some examples of what a good “start part” should entail)
Bill Phillips, Carrier
Bill, you know this answer.. I expect you to EMBELLISH after I botch it.
Simply, a Start part should have your company unit settings, accuracy settings, layer settings, parameters that are important. Part Start parts will have different parameters than a SheetMetal start part.
The same can be said for all of your Assembly Start Parts.
Consultants who work with different customers said customers might have standards and templates that they need if you are passing data back to them. It is important to keep these in the respective customer start directories so that you don’t get messed up. Be careful! File your data and templates in a repeatable logical location so that your actions do not overlap with other customers’ standards.
As far as Drawbacks? If you pick the wrong start part, well, I don’t think you can slip the table cloth back under once you have this base settings established/baked into the base parts. ** Don’t pick the wrong start parts!**
As a Pro/Users member, is it possible to get some discount on Creo (any) license to use it at home (design for hubbies (hobbies?))
Mark Tentler, Honeywell
Nope… If you a kid in engineering school and he/she doesn’t want to take advantage of student discounts, then you might could get a seat that way.
Keep in mind, the data produced is NOT readable on any commercial platform.
Truly, it is hobby.
Maybe, for the weekend, you can “borrow” a license from your company to do your hobby work? Talk to your IT department.
This is all speculative on my part.
What is the difference between owning and leasing?

What are the opportunities with Creo for students?
Trent Willis, FTCC
Non-Solidworks Jobs! A job.. probably better than a Solidworks Job.. maybe?
Get the engineering basics down, specialize in a valuable CREO module with those skills and the work will follow.
What license modules include Creo Illustrate?
Dave Engvall, Stanley
I am pretty sure this is a stand alone license. I know, when I used it at TE, I had to ping a different license server to access it. Strange and we have very capable, advanced assembly licenses. Still this one, was a stand alone and I did not like that either Dave!
Is there any initiative to make MBD completely compatible with step files? If not step files, what application would be best for conveying your MDB model to vendors?
Larry Stiver, Tecan
Larry, I think that using combined model states and add annotations accordingly. Good luck changing anything!
What CFD (computational fluid dynamics) Packages are preferred or work best with Creo 4.0 models & assemblies?
Brent Price (Gilbarco)
Answered by: Kayle B. Brock, Engineering Manager (Carrier Corp)
The answer to this question will be widely varied depending on who provides it. Carrier uses Fluent (ANSYS) for CFD projects here in Charlotte. The process is; first the CREO models are translated to a STEP file, then meshed with Hypermesh, then loaded into Fluent.
Can a 30 Micro Pattern be wrapped to a complex surface? If not directly, how could it be done?
Rick Mulcahy (FN America)
What causes reference patterns to fail by placing the pattern parts coincident with pattern leader? The pattern preview is correct, but when you complete the pattern creation the pattern collapses to the leader location?
Greg Beard (IDE)
Answered by: Gavin B. Rumble, PE Solid Engineering
Greg, Leo described a situation where the constraints for the pattern leader were not properly defined…do you remember what he thought the problem was?
