Tutorial - Modeling support bracket in Creo Element/Pro aka Pro/Engineer Wildfire?

Here is the tutorial.

  1. Step 1:

    Sketch >> Top plane.

  2. Step 2:

    Draw a rectangle of 200mmx250mm.

  3. Step 3:

    Extrude it by 10mm.

  4. Step 4:

    Sketch >> Front surface.

  5. Step 5:

    Draw a rectangle of 160mmx10mm at 40mm to top edge.

  6. Step 6:

    Extrude it by 120mm.

  7. Step 7:

    Offset the right plane by 65mm.

  8. Step 8:

    Sketch >> DTM1.

  9. Step 9:

    Take the Edges references.

  10. Step 10:

    Draw lines like this.

  11. Step 11:

    Exit the sketch. Insert >> Rib >> Profile rib.

  12. Step 12:

    Change the rib direction towards Right plane and thickness be 10mm.

  13. Step 13:

    Now we have one rib. We have to create the same on the other side.

  14. Step 14:

    Select the rib feature and then goto Edit >> Mirror.

  15. Step 15:

    Select the right plane as the mirror plane and click OK.

  16. Step 16:

    We have both ribs created.

  17. Step 17:

    Sketch and the front Surface of the extrude1.

  18. Step 18:

    Draw four holes of 14mm dia at 20mm to the corresponding edges.

  19. Step 19:

    Extrude cut it through all.

  20. Step 20:

    Sketch >> Top face of the Extrude2.

  21. Step 21:

    Draw two circles of 14mm dia on the vertical axis at 28mm to the corresponding edges.

  22. Step 22:

    Extrude them with remove material.

  23. Step 23:

    Now we have bracket model. In next tutorial we will study the Analaysis on this part.

  24. Step 24:

    In the next tutorial we will study the effect of force on this bracket in Mechanica.
