Using Template Manufacturing Models

You can use template manufacturing models with pre-configured manufacturing items to speed up the creation of manufacturing
models.
Template Manufacturing Models
• Pre-configure manufacturing items:
– Operation
– Coordinate Systems
– Retract Positions
– Fixtures
– Parameters
– Workcell
– Tooling
– NC Sequences
• Default Templates
• User-Defined Templates
• Configuration Options
– mfg_start_model_dir
– template_mfgnc

• You can create template manufacturing models with pre-configured manufacturing items to speed up the manufacturing process and enforce
manufacturing standards. When creating new manufacturing models, the template manufacturing model is copied to the new manufacturing model.
• You can use any manufacturing model, with any number of features, as a template. The template can include items such as:
– Operation – You can include a configured operation.
– Coordinate Systems – You can specify machine zero positions and configure coordinate systems for assembling reference models,
workpieces, and fixtures.

– Retract Positions – You can configure retract positions for use within an operation.

– Fixtures – You can pre-load fixtures within the operation configuration.

– Parameters – You can pre-load site parameter files. These files enable you to set default values for all NC sequence parameters.
– Workcell – You can specify the type of machine.
– Tooling – You can configure tooling within the workcell.
– NC Sequences – You can pre-load NC sequences that you can then edit.
• Default templates are supplied with Creo Parametric. These templates are in imperial and metric units. You can also create an empty manufacturing model.
• Alternatively you can configure your own user-defined templates.
– You can use the configuration option mfg_start_model_dir to locate user-defined template models.
– You can use the configuration option template_mfgnc to specify the name of the default manufacturing template model.
