View Full Version : PTC creo animation help

04-10-2012, 03:08 PM
Hey everyone, I was just wondering if someone could show me how to do animations in creo. Preferably I'd like to arrange a meeting via join.me or some other screen sharing service, so you could show me hands on. I've read several tutorials, and I just don't get it. Thanks!

Take a look at this step-by-step tutorial. It is from Wildfire 3.0, but the features are very similar in Creo 1.0 and Creo Elements/pro 5.0.


We have other tutorials, but they all require a customer account to access.

If you make something nice, be sure to share :)

To confirm, are you looking for animation or simulation. These are two different scenarios and I want to make sure we provide the right information to you.

An animation is a scenario where you might be looking at how things interact with one another void of physics or now they might have been assembled. For example, if you want to show a process of assembling things together.

A simulation would take into account aspects of the model - joint used to assembly the components, gravity, forces, loads, material, etc. For example, if you want to show how your robot mechanism might throw the basketball.

I would be happy to connect with you to discuss either case. Send me an email at mfischer@ptc.com and we can setup a time to talk live.

Here is another Animation tutorial you can reference to help you get started.
