Tutorial - Modeling rope in Creo Elements aka Pro/E

For making simple bended rope we have to follow these steps.
1 Make 4 cylinderical extrusions.
2 Twist them.
3 Bend them.

  1. Step 1:

    Sketch >> Top plane.

  2. Step 2:

    Now draw a circle of 10mm tangent to vertical and horizontal axis.

  3. Step 3:

    Extrude it by 100mm.

  4. Step 4:

    Now we have to pattern it about Y-axis which will create 4 cylinderical bodies. For this operation select the cylinderical body and then goto edit >> pattern.

  5. Step 5:

    Change pattern parameter to Axis.

  6. Step 6:

    Select Y-Axis in the Co-ordinate system.

  7. Step 7:

    Click the angular extent button to make it equally spaced about 360. Enter number of items be 4. Click OK

  8. Step 8:

    Now we have the 4 cylinderical body.

  9. Step 9:

    Moving onto next step goto Insert >> Warp.

  10. Step 10:

    Select the cylinderical body and then select twist tool. This tool will be twist the cylinderical body and give it shape of rope.

  11. Step 11:

    Under references change the direction to Top plane.

  12. Step 12:

    Input the angle value be 400. Click OK.

  13. Step 13:

    We have the rope body. Now we have to bend the rope.

  14. Step 14:

    For bending goto Insert >> Warp.

  15. Step 15:

    Select the body and then click Bend tool. This tool will be used to bend the rope.

  16. Step 16:

    Now change the direction under Reference to top plane.

  17. Step 17:

    Input the angle value = 180º and press enter. We can see that the rope is bended.

  18. Step 18:

    Click OK and the rope is created.
