To Check the Thickness of a Part
1. Click Analysis > Model Report > Section Thickness. The Thickness dialog box opens. Quick is the default analysis type.
2. Click in the Part / Body collector and select the part or a body to compute the thickness.
3. Optionally, to customize or edit your analysis, perform the following steps:
a. Click in the Planes collector and select a plane. The name of the selected plane appears in the Planes collector. If you select a plane, From slices, To slices, Direction, Use number of slices, and Offset become unavailable.
b. If you do not select a plane, select the start and end points to insert the number of slices between the points in the model. Click in the From Slices collector and select a vertex as the start point. In the To Slices collector and select a vertex as the end point. The names of the selected start and end points appear in the From and To collector, respectively
c. Click in the Direction collector and select a surface, curve, edge, axis, or coordinate system. An arrow in the graphic window indicates the surface, curve, edge, axis, or coordinate system for which the thickness is calculated
d. Click the Use number of slices check box to specify the number of slices or use the default value.
e. Click the Offset check box and change the offset value if necessary.
f. Specify the maximum and minimum thickness values in the Maximum and Minimum boxes, or select maximum and minimum values from the list of most recently used values.
4. Click Show All to highlight the result in the Creo Parametric graphics window or click Clear to clear the results.
In the results box the names of bodies that have a thickness greater than the specified maximum value, less than the minimum value appear. The area selected for the thickness check also appears in the result box. You can view the report of the analysis in an Information Window.
When the thickness check is complete, then a border surrounds the cross section. The color of the border indicates the range of thickness for the cross section:
Yellow—Between the specified maximum and minimum values.
Red—Exceeds or equals the specified maximum value.
Blue—Below or equal to the specified minimum value.
5. To save the analysis, perform the following steps:
a. At the bottom of the Thickness dialog box, select the Saved analysis type.
When you are modeling, a Saved analysis appears and updates dynamically.
b. Optionally, in the box adjacent to the list, rename the analysis.
6. Click OK to complete the analysis or Cancel to cancel the analysis. Alternatively, click Repeat to start a new analysis.
