Tips & Tricks

Creo Elements/Direct (CoCreate) Tips:
  • When drag-selecting elements (2D or 3D) in your Modeling viewport, you can change the selection method (completely included vs partially included) by hitting the TAB key when dragging -- try it for yourself! (v18.1+ Only)  

AI MAXTools Tips:
  • Use AI Reference Table (part of AI DesignMAX) to easily look up commonly used values (tap drill and clearance sizes, etc).  Then just click on the value you want, and that value will immediately be used in your active command.  You can even divide (or multiply!) the number by 2 if you want -- ideal for inputting radius values when you're looking at the diameter value!
