Best Practice - Extrude Text Cutout on Curved Surface

This guide describes how to create a text cutout on a curved surface. To achieve a cut that is normal to the curved surface at all points can be tricky in Creo, since a cut extrude can only be done using a planar datum plane.
This is a step-by-step guide on how to do it by using different features in Creo.

Best Practice - Import Excel-file into a Drawing
This guide presents a step-by-step instruction on how to import a Excel-file into a Creo Parametric drawing.
There are some best practices to have in mind. The best way is to export your file to a comma separated CSV-file from Excel, and then modify it before you insert the table in the drawing.
Best Practice - Import and Export of STEP & IGES Files

When working with neutral file formats such as STEP and IGES there are often issues with the quality of the import or export. This is because of the different translation steps that occur when first exporting the native CAD-file to a neutral format and then importing the same file into Creo Parametric

This guide describes the best practice scenario for importing and exporting neutral files from Creo Parametric
Best Practices - PTC Flush
Sometimes the licenses on FlexNET and Flex lm servers get locked even though they are not in use. One example of when this can happen is if a client uses a machine that runs PRO/Engineer that suddenly crash- es and demands a forced restart of the program.

This document shows how to free a locked license.
