Example: Pulling a profile to a face (remove material)
In this example you will pull a profile (remove material) on part 2 to face 1 of part 1 from the active workplane (w1) without keeping the workplane for the next operation. Shown below are part1, part2, w1, and the resulting pulled (remove material) part 2.
Example: Pulling a profile to a Face (remove material)
After creating part1, part2, the workplane and profile:
1. Click Modeling and then, in the Model group, click the arrow next to Pull.
2. Click Pull Linear. The Pull dialog box opens. Part is set to p2 (the active part) and the workplane is set to w1 (the active workplane). You do not need to change the workplane but may need to change the part to be milled.
The default option in the Operation box is Automatic. Creo Elements/Direct Modeling automatically selects the most likely operation based on the other options in the Pull dialog box. You can also choose Add Material or Remove Material in the Operation box if the system suggested operation is not the wanted operation.
3. In the Type box, select To Faces and click face 1 in the viewport. Creo Elements/Direct Modeling displays defined in the field next to To Face.
4. Define the milling direction by choosing the option in the Direction box that shows a feedback arrow pointing in the direction of the target part.
5. Clear Keep WP. Keep Prof is automatically disabled.
6. Click to complete the operation.
