When it comes to 3D modeling packages, Creo Parametric contains a suite of tools that are wide and deep. The Draft Feature within itself has the flexibility to achieve basic draft such as in our tutorial today or complex, curve-driven split draft.

Creo Draft Inputs-01

Only three inputs are needed to successfully create a draft feature: 1) Draft Surfaces, 2) Draft Hinges, and 3) Pull Direction. Pick’em right and you’re in business.

So, without further ado, feel free to dive into the video.

In summary, the steps to create draft using the Creo Parametric basic draft are depicted in this final image.
