It’s PTC University’s mission to guide students through best-in-class learning experiences. As part of that mission, PTC University (PTCU) is committed to providing relevant, timely training opportunities. This commitment is shown through two recent changes to the Creo Training Catalog. Keep reading to find out what changed and why.

Virtual Instructor-Led Courses Feature Creo 9

All virtual instructor-led courses are now based around Creo 9.0.1. This includes the virtual machines that students access to complete their coursework. Previously, courses featured Creo 8. And, although most core functionality looks the same from Creo 8 to Creo 9, there were a few UI variances. However, students will now see the most current version of Creo Parametric as they work through their PTCU courses.

3 New Creo Surfacing Courses Are Available

The PTCU Creo course catalog currently has a total of 37 virtual instructor-led, 3-hour training courses. Based on customer feedback requesting additional courses covering surfacing functionality, three new courses will be added to the Surfacing category. After the new courses are available, the catalog will contain a total of 40 courses.

Surfacing features in Creo Parametric give you the ability to easily create and manipulate a model’s surfaces and curves directly on the screen. The three surfacing courses below have previously been available, which were primarily focused on parametric surfacing:

  • Creating Surface Features 1
  • Creating Surface Features 2
  • Stitching, Editing, Solidifying Surfaces

In late 2022, these three additional courses will be available in the Creo course catalog:

1) Fixing Imported Geometry

This course is helpful for users who work with imported data and need to be able to repair translated geometry that has missing information, geometry gaps, and errors. Take this course to learn to automate the repair and clean-up of imported geometry using the Creo Parametric Import Data Doctor (IDD).  


2) Conceptual Design Using Subdivision Modeling

This course is helpful for anyone who creates freeform surface geometry to satisfy aesthetic, ergonomic, and functional design requirements. Take this course to learn capabilities that can help speed the creation of high-quality freeform surface geometry using the Creo Parametric Freestyle Design features.


3) Advanced Surface Modeling

Styling can set a product apart in the market—creating a competitive advantage. This course is helpful for those who want to differentiate their products with styling. Students of this course can learn to use freeform design to satisfy aesthetic, ergonomic, and functional design requirements. Take this course to learn how to combine the power of parametric modeling and the flexibility of freeform surfacing using Creo Interactive Surface Design (ISDX).


The addition of these three courses is another example of PTCU’s commitment to providing relevant, timely, best-in-class learning experiences to users.
