Get Free Simulation Tutorials from PTC University
Written By: Bettina Giemsa

PTC University is the number one place on the Internet for free tutorials about PTC products. The site is devoted to helping users explore PTC products for the first time, and to find new ways to use the PTC products they use every day.

In this blog, we’ll take a look at just some of the Creo Simulate tutorials available on the Learning Exchange. But be sure to remember that the Learning Exchange offers useful information about many products, including Windchill, Servigistics Arbortext, PTC Mathcad and our IoT products.

Parts under various stages of simulation

Creo designs under various phases of simulation

The Creo Simulate tutorials from PTC University cover beginner, intermediate and advanced level topics. Here’s a list of just some of the free Creo Simulate tutorials you can take advantage of:

Running a Static Analysis in Creo Simulate

This Creo Simulate tutorial demonstrates how to create a Static Analysis. The first step is to apply the material properties, the constraints, and the forces before running the analysis. This tutorial will also show how a static analysis can be shown as a Fringe or as a Graph.

Defining Constraints

Learn how to define constraints in a non-Cartesian coordinate system. The advantage of doing this is that you can constrain radial, axial, or angle of twist degrees of freedom which cannot easily be accomplished using an X, Y, and Z reference.

Creating a Buckling Analysis

Learn to create a buckling analysis and understand why constraints are very important when determining the buckling load factor. You’ll also learn why a static analysis is necessary before a buckling analysis can be computed.

Using Measures

In this tutorial you learn how to use user-defined measures at certain locations in the Creo Simulate model.
