Tutorial - Modeling rope in Creo Elements aka Pro/E
For making simple bended rope we have to follow these steps.
1 Make 4 cylinderical extrusions.
2 Twist them.
3 Bend them.
Sketch >> Top plane.
Now draw a circle of 10mm tangent to vertical and horizontal axis.
Extrude it by 100mm.
Now we have to pattern it about Y-axis which will create 4 cylinderical bodies. For this operation select the cylinderical body and then goto edit >> pattern.
Change pattern parameter to Axis.
Select Y-Axis in the Co-ordinate system.
Click the angular extent button to make it equally spaced about 360. Enter number of items be 4. Click OK
Now we have the 4 cylinderical body.
Moving onto next step goto Insert >> Warp.
Select the cylinderical body and then select twist tool. This tool will be twist the cylinderical body and give it shape of rope.
Under references change the direction to Top plane.
Input the angle value be 400. Click OK.
We have the rope body. Now we have to bend the rope.
For bending goto Insert >> Warp.
Select the body and then click Bend tool. This tool will be used to bend the rope.
Now change the direction under Reference to top plane.
Input the angle value = 180º and press enter. We can see that the rope is bended.
Click OK and the rope is created.
