To Create a Cyclic Symmetry Model Section
1. Open the part or assembly in Creo Parametric.
2. Make a cut feature in your model, leaving the cyclically symmetric portion.
For more information on cuts, search the Part Modeling functional area of the Creo Parametric Help Center.
3. You can optionally save the cyclically symmetric portion of the model as a separate model. The cut boundaries need not be planar. If you save the section as a separate model, any analyses or design study that you run will affect the cut section only, not the entire model.
When you apply a cyclic symmetry constraint to the cut section, any displacement that occurs will mimic the behavior of the entire, uncut model.
