Also returning in this release is the digital manikin, first introduced in November as part of release 4. Whereas using the MMW for zooming in and out may be intuitive for most, other uses might not be quite so apparent. Similarly, to rotate a model, you keep the MMW pressed down as you drag the mouse around. In addition, you may also use the MMW in the Sketcher 2D sketching mode to complete an operation, say, finishing a circle or a rectangle, or to cancel out something in mid-operation, like an erroneous line segment. A text explanation will appear.

Pushing Pixels This release marks the debut of Dynamic Edit, which lets you make parametric edits by pushing, pulling, and dragging on surfaces and edges. In this mode, you see the results of your edits in real time, because geometry regeneration is instantaneous.
That means you can adjust the depth of an extrusion, the radius of a rounded edge, or the diameter of a hole by directly interacting with the feature. To activate this, you can select a parametric feature from the model tree, then right-click, and select Dynamic Edit. This gives you little drag handles you can use to control and adjust the feature. For example, you may select a feature, then pattern it along an imaginary arc segment, using a predefined axis as center.
Using the patterning command, you can also duplicate a feature onto a surface, using a datum point to anchor the new feature with precision. In plastic parts and shell parts with many internal structures, the Trajectory Ribs command can come in handy. Essentially, it lets you automatically create ribs that extend into various directions, terminating when they come in contact with nearby solids and surfaces.
Once you have created a rib cluster, you can duplicate the same structure at another location by copying and pasting it. The Manikin Nicknamed Bob This release marks the return of the digital manikin, which I took the liberty of renaming Bob. Bob has a female counterpart, so you may also call yours Jane. To do that, you right-click, then choose Edit Parameters. Installation The license activation process, in my view, is more complex than it should be, perhaps to discourage unauthorized use.
The license keys came as two. The instruction reads:. Save the attachment as a. Import this license file into PTC. Setup using ptcsetup. Unable to make heads or tails of this, I resorted to contacting Tech Support, which proved incredibly helpful and responsive. I managed to install the software by granting the technician permission to take control of my desktop. Essentially, he finished it on my behalf.
For a video preview of Wildfire 5. Kenneth Wong writes about technology, its innovative use, and its implications. PTC's classic parametric modeling package returns with push-pull editing. Visualize SDK offers more realistic scene rendering for engineering applications. By Kenneth Wong. March 1, Using an axis as center, you can pattern a feature along an arc segment. Trajectory ribs can be copied and pasted into new locations. Share This Article. Join over 90, engineering professionals who get fresh engineering news as soon as it is published.

PTC Creo Elements/Pro
It is the direct modeling application of a suite of 10 that provide collaborative solid modeling , assembly modeling , 2D orthographic views , finite element analysis , parametric modeling , sub-divisional and NURBS surface modeling , direct drafting , and NC and tooling functionality for mechanical designers. This design approach is used by companies whose product strategy is family-based or platform-driven, where a prescriptive design strategy is fundamental to the success of the design process by embedding engineering constraints and relationships to quickly optimize the design, or where the resulting geometry may be complex or based upon equations. Creo Elements provides a complete set of design, analysis and manufacturing capabilities on one, integral, scalable platform. Creo Elements can be used to create a complete 3D digital model of manufactured goods. The models consist of 2D and 3D solid model data which can also be used downstream in finite element analysis , rapid prototyping , tooling design, and CNC manufacturing. A product and its entire bill of materials BOM can be modeled accurately with fully associative engineering drawings , and revision control information.
