About the Applications Tab
The Applications tab allows you to activate a variety of applications depending on the mode that you are in and the licenses you have.
Applications include:
Welding—Model welds in assemblies. Generate report tables about weld parameters and show welding symbols in assembly drawings.
Mold/Cast—Create mold/casting features such as Silhouette Curve, Draft Line, Draft, Tan Draft, Offset Area, 1 Sided Trim, Waterlines, and runners while in Part mode.
Simulate—Simulate how a product will function in its intended environment enabling non-specialist design engineers to explore the mechanical performance of design alternatives without building prototypes.
Simulate Results—Display the results of an analysis or design study. You can access Creo Simulate results with this command either with or without opening a model in Creo Parametric.
Cabling—Create a special cabling harness part within an assembly.
Piping—Model complex 3-D piping systems based on either user-defined pipe data or project specifications.
Mold Layout—Automate mold design beyond just creating the core and cavity assembly.
ECAD Collaboration—Provide a collaborative environment to ECAD and MCAD users. They can use Creo Parametric and InterComm Expert, or ProductVeiw Professional to dynamically investigate design issues and propose and share design changes
Mechanism—Make a mechanism move and analyze its motion.
Animation—Animate mechanisms previously created in Mechanism Design or any assembly from Creo Parametric.
Expert Machinist—A Milling programming solution. A feature-based NC programming system for Prismatic part machining. It is a complete 3-axis multi-surfaces machining based on shop-floor machining fundamentals.
NC Process—Provide a unique process-planning/route sheet tool to create a framework of step-by-step illustrations and instructions necessary to successfully manufacture parts.
NC—Provide tools that enable a manufacturing engineer to follow a logical sequence of steps to progress from a design model to ASCII CL data files that can be post-processed into NC machine data. NC creates data necessary to drive an NC machine tool to machine a Creo Parametric part.
NC Post Processor—Start the PTC NC post-processor, G-POST. A post-processor is used to translate CL files generated by NC/Manufacturing into G/M codes for CNC machines.
Process Documentation—Generate a shop floor report in the HTML format. This shop floor report contains important manufacturing information and tool lists, listed according to the NC operation.
