Task: Learn how to Assemble parts in Creo Parametric

In addition to making parts to print in Creo, it is sometimes useful to combine multiple parts to make a model. For example, we can make a robot model by assembling parts in Creo. I have conducted a video on how to do so.

For this tutorial, I first created two simple parts which fit snugly inside one another (done before the video). Then, I created a new assembly file and uploaded the bigger part first. I placed the smaller part and did the assembly by matching the sides of the cylinder. That is how I ened up with a cylinder with its hole plugged in the end.

Reflections

We hope to use Assemblies to make models for various structures in our robot in the near future. I hope this tutorial helps you with your endeavors!
