Patterning Conundrum

Question:

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?

Layer Management – Creo View

Question:

When using Creo 3 and saving files, the model (drawing) layers appear correct. When the drawing is open in Creo View, numerous planes a WCS’s are on and make the file unreadable. It is difficult to find these features n the model to turn them off. What are the options when the DRW file is published (to a Creo view file) to prevent this from happening?

Devin Albrecht (FN America)

Answered by:

Leo answered this one too, does anybody remember what he said?

Model Based Definition (MBD) Promises Delivered

The following video of a presentation by Leo Greene at the 2018 Spring Event can be viewed in your browser.

Often promised, rarely delivered, MBD has generated a lot of excitement lately. Learn some of the basics and uncover some of the considerations of Model Based Definition.  Recorded live in front of a regional user group at Flywheel in Winston-Salem, NC using Creo Parametric 4.0

CREO in the cloud

Question:

Is anyone in Pro/Users of the Carolinas planning to implement CREO in the cloud?

How will IT administration and customizations work?

Integrating with CeTol and ANSYS are also a concern: Comments?

Jonas Shawanesse (FN America)

Answered by: Gavin B. Rumble, PE Solid Engineering

Jonas, correct me if I’m wrong but it sounds like you are referring to a Creo cloud-based (browser) CAD platform?  I don’t think that this is available…don’t see anything on the PTC website about it.  Now, there actually is a PTC Cloud, though. This is where PTC offers hosted PLM applications.  See the link above for more information. Users with direct experience…please respond with your thoughts.
