Did you know that you can use Bodies as design tools for Multibody Part Design?
In Creo 7.0 we can now create and use bodies that are intended to act as modification tools to change geometry in other design bodies. Using these operations increases productivity by applying faster and easier design workflows and reducing the need to switch to surface or quilt-based workflows and tools. Geometry creation tools such as Extrude or Revolve... Continue Reading →
Did you know that you can pause while rendering in Creo?
The rendering process in Creo Render Studio can heavily use computer resources and block other applications from functioning efficiently. You can now pause rendering to free up system resources starting with Creo 7.0 You no longer need to cancel your rendering and then restart it when you return to Render Studio. You can pause your...

Did you know that Mirror tool in Creo Sketcher is enhanced?
Starting with Creo 7.0 release, Mirror tool in Sketcher has been made easier. To mirror, select the sketched entities to mirror and select reference. Allowed entities for mirror reference are horizontal and vertical sketch reference lines, and other straight geometric entities, such as model edges, projected geometry, curves, standard and construction sketched lines and center lines....

Have you tried any of these 3 MBD enhancements in Creo?
The following are 6 MBD related enhancements in Creo 7.0 - Control gap between a GTOL frame and Indicator frame If you have a drawing that is designed against the 2012 version of ISO 1101, and you need to make it compliant with the 2017 version , you can use this detail option to help...

Did you know that you can exchange Multibody Parts in Creo model easily?
Starting with Creo 7.0, Multibody definition is maintained during data exchange. This helps preserve design intent during an Import/Export operation. The multibody definition is maintained in both exported and imported Creo Parametric 7.0 geometry. Export operation Multibody models in Creo Parametric preserve multibody definitionBody characteristics, such as body name and body appearances, are transferredConstruction bodies for each exported profile...

How to align Ordinate dimensions with a baseline in Creo?
Starting with Creo 7.0, there's better control over the placement of ordinate dimensions that are created in models and drawings. Prior to this Creo 7.0 release, when creating ordinate dimensions per ANSI standards, these dimensions would get placed when they are aligned with the baseline. However, this can now be controlled using "default_ansi_ord_dim_aligned" config option.... Continue Reading →
Have you tried to accurately remove hidden lines for intersecting components in Creo?
If you have a part with interfering bodies or an assembly with interfere hidden lines removed. You might also want to see a drawing for a part or assembly with interfering parts or components, correctly with hidden lines removed. Starting with Creo 7.0, you can use the below config option to accurately remove the Hidden... Continue Reading →
How to control snapping of normal and tangent placement of leader annotations in Creo?
When you place a leader annotation on an edge, the normal or tangent leaders appear as soon as the cursor position is beyond the snapping angle threshold. You may turn off this snapping in order to place a leader annotation very close to a normal or a tangent placement without the snapping. With Creo 22.214.171.124,... Continue Reading →
Did you know that you can control the display of geometry reps in Creo?
With Creo 7.0, you can control the display of representation geometry without setting defined appearances or appearance states. This makes it easier to work with different types of geometry representations. You can select or clear the Boundary (B-rep) and Mixed check boxes to hide or show the type of geometry representation. To set the transparency for each representation type,... Continue Reading →
