ECAD 2055 - Introduction to CREO Elements/Pro

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture None Lab None
Course Description: Students will use CREO Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/Engineer-Wildfire) software by Parametric Technology Corporation. Activities include sketching, creating, editing, and dimensioning of 3D solid models. From these models, students will create 2D drawings and make assemblies. 2D & 3D printing are also covered. The class uses a hands-on approach in order to build a foundation for continued training or self-instruction.
MnTC Goals

Prerequisite(s): ECAD 1020  or ENGR 1020  or instructor consent.
