Downloading Programs

1.

If you don’t have the CDs you may download the programs (Creo and MathCad) from the following
website:

www.ptc.com/go/firstgettingstarted

PTC

CREO Elements Pro
Installation and

Setup

2.

Insert PTC CD and execute Setup.exe

3.

Use the link on the startup screen to create a PTC account (ends with student.jsp). This is a special
Education account so use this rather than the full account from the ptc.com site.


For logging in note that s
tudents need to include their parents email. Also notice that for “Title” you
need to pick “Secondary Schools Student” or “Mentor” (for adults).

4.

Now after you made your account (or you already had one) select Continue

from the startup screen.
Choose Acc
ept and then fill in your account information and choose Generate License File. (see next
page for screen shot).


After the file is generated you can select Next.

5.

Leave the options at default and choose Next again


6.

The default standard is English for
the US. Note most TETRIX parts are metric

and

they are already made
for us
. So change this to Metric and you will have the least conversions. Also note you can create new
parts in English and then convert to metric. This can also be changed in the prog
ram later if you change
your mind.

Then select Next.

7.

Modify the startup shortcuts and startup directory to your needs. I would at least make a PTC
subdirectory in your MyDocuments folder.

Then choose Next.


8.

Leave the option programs checked. Then select Next.

9.

11.

Now find your start up Icon and start the program. Creo Elements connects to the Internet on startup
so you may get several Firewall Alerts. Please select ALLOW to Public and Private Networks so you don’t
get this error. This allows help files and lates
t news from PTC.


12.

Once you are in the

CREO

program Copy this Link to the browser and then in the left pane select
Favorites and Add. This will give you a quick link to many First Robotics options such as Other programs,
Parts Library, and tutorials/curri
culum.

www.ptc.com/go/firstgettingstarted

and here is another link you may want to add.

a.


On this link got to the Download Parts and Fields and select the FTC Kit of Parts and the FTC
Field t
o download. I used “Save” and put it in my default PTC Folder (created during CREO
installation). Then after it is saved I used Exporer to Extract these Zip files. If you
change the
folder to your default it will

automatically make a subfolder.
If you
don’t change it you will get
the subfolder name doubled which will work but makes it longer.

b.

Repeat this process for the Training and Resources > Hands On Workshop Curriculum

c.

In the CREO software on the left pane you may choose “Working Directory” and yo
u will now
see all of the subdirectories with the Parts
,

Field
, and Curriculum
.
