Creo Parametric Basic Tutorial || Revolve and Pattern

mhousing-YouTube Icon

In this tutorial we will learn about the Revolve and Pattern Feature of Creo Parametric by developing a solid named ‘mhousing’.

Revolve Feature is used when we want to create a solid by revolving a closed sketch profile through a specified angle and along an axis.

Pattern Feature is used when we want to replicate a feature. This can be one or two dimensional array of that feature.

In this tutorial addition to these tools, general part modelling process of creating Basic Sketches, Shell Tool, Extrude Tool with cut operation etc. are also displayed.

  1. First we will define the Working Directory.
  2. Create a new part file utilizing the metric template and give it the name ‘mhousing’.
  3. Clear the screen by closing the visibility of Axis, Points, Spin centre, etc.
  4. Create a new sketch over ‘Front Datum Plane’.
  5. Orient the sketching plane parallel to the screen by clicking Sketch View icon.
  6. Activate the line tool and draw the sketch as displayed.
  7. Change the dimension values as displayed.
  8. Now draw a Rectangle.
  9. Convert these lines into construction geometry.
  10. Complete the sketch by adding some more lines.
  11. Apply the dimensions as displayed.
  12. Delete this automatic applied constrain to specify new dimension.
  13. Add a Centerline in the sketch.
  14. The sketch is complete so exit from the sketching mode.
  15. Activate the Revolve Tool.
  16. From the Placement Tab define the sketch.
  17. You can see the software has automatic selected Internal Centerline as Axis.
  18. Click green check mark to execute the command.
  19. Change the colour of the model as per your wish.
  20. Save the file.
  21. Activate Round Tool.
  22. Specify the radius for the ‘Round’.
  23. Select this edge of the model to apply the round.
  24. Activate the ‘Shell’ Tool.
  25. Specify the thickness of the model.
  26. Switch to Reference Tab and define the faces to be removed.
  27. Click green check mark to execute the command.
  28. Activate section along X direction.
  29. Now you can examine the internal view of the model.
  30. Deactivate the section view.
  31. Again create a new sketch over ‘Front Datum Plane’.
  32. Set the display of the model in ‘Hidden Line Display’.
  33. Draw the sketch as displayed.
  34. Activate the Extrude Tool.
  35. Select the sketch and activate remove material option.
  36. Click green check mark to execute the command.
  37. Select the Extrude Feature form the Model Tree and activate Pattern Tool.
  38. Select direction as type of the Pattern.
  39. Select Axis to define the direction reference.
  40. Fill the number of the members to be patterned.
  41. Enter the spacing between the patterned members.
  42. Click green check mark to execute the command.
  43. Select the previously created Pattern Feature from the Model Tree and again activate Pattern Tool.
  44. Select axis as type of the Pattern.
  45. Next define the axis.
  46. Number of the members to be patterned and angle between them has already filled so click the green check mark to execute the command.
  47. The model is complete so save the file and delete all the old version files that were saved on your hardware.
