Native Mode Workflow
When you analyze and optimize a design in native mode, you complete the following four-step process:
Create your model geometry in Creo Parametric.
Simplify the model.
Define a system of units.
Add modeling prerequisites such as coordinate systems and regions, if desired.
Add materials, loads, constraints, contacts, and measures.
Add idealizations such as springs, beams, shells, and so forth.
Check the mesh.
Define an analysis.
Run the analysis.
Review the analysis results.
Define design variables for the design study.
Review and modify the shape or property changes.
Define sensitivity and optimization studies.
Run the studies.
Review the study results.
If satisfied with the optimization results, update your model to reflect the optimized design.
Be aware that the order of the steps—particularly during the model development phase—may be different depending on your preferences, modeling goals, and techniques.
