PTC Creo 4.0: Shell feature

PTC Creo 4.0Posted by Ing. Vladimir Palffy Mon, March 20, 2017 09:04PM

A shell feature is a pick and place feature that creates a hollowed out solid with a specified wall thickness.

Note: The pick and place features (same as chamfers, rounds and holes) means that the shape of the feature is implied - you are not required to sketch the section. Pick and place features can be added once the model’s shape has been created.

You can create two types of shells:

• Open Shells (example in this video tutorial)

• Closed shells (create base geometry and apply Shell feature)
