Benefits and Description

The new Pull command in Creo Elements/Direct 17.0 simplifies the user interaction when creating or modifying 3D models. When selecting a workplane with 2D geometry, overlapping profiles are no longer an issue, since the Pull command automatically detects all closed profile areas, which are highlighted and preselected. The preselected profile areas can easily be deselected and selected again. Profile elements that stick out the closed profiles are automatically highlighted and ignored by the operation. When dragging profile areas into or out of existing material, the system automatically proposes add or remove material behavior. Pull can also work with selected faces. The new command allows linear and angular pull operations. For modifying the pull direction or defining the rotation axis, the 3D CoPilot is extended to easily change location or direction.

The new Pull command drastically simplifies and reduces the user interaction and thereby improves the productivity significantly.
