Collision Detection enables you to check for interferences
between parts while dragging them.
• Global Collision Detection
• Partial Collision Detection
• Areas of interference highlight
• Sound Warning on Collision
Analyzing Collision Detection Settings
Figure 2 – Interference Fixed
Creo Parametric provides real-time collision detection, enabling you to check
for interferences between parts as you drag a mechanism assembly through
its range of motion. Collision detection, by default, is turned off when you
drag components in a mechanism assembly. However, you can enable two
different types of collision detection:
• Global Collision Detection — Checks for any type of collision in the entire
• Partial Collision Detection — You specify the components between which
to check for interference.
There is also an option to sound a warning when a collision occurs between
components. The component areas that interfere with each other highlight,
as shown in Figure 1. You can then resolve the interferences by modifying
the models. In Figure 2, the housing was modified such that the connecting
rod no longer interferes.
