Proper & timely support leads to manage the overall business performance across the business cycle.



With carbon credit consultancy, we guide our clients to professionally manage the emission limits of CO2 & other equivalent greenhouse gases. Here we identify and map critical points responsible for CO2 emissions & offer customized solutions. We also guide companies to invest in environmental friendly carbon offsetting projects. It helps you to earn carbon credit which can be traded later on with other business houses or individuals. It also unlocks the endless possibilities to new markets because carbon credit has been established as benchmark for environmental compliance.



So for clean, green & sustainable development, join hands with us. Our work does the talking & it is much more than just a simple business plan.


At a certain point in an individual's life, a person achieves a levelof competence and independence in social, financial or emotional terms. Most people settle down into a family life with the necessary employment connection and social network that allows for more growth in all aspects of one's lifestyle. There will always be limitations in a few or more of the roles we, as individuals are expected to take on. And there are those among us who may need caring attention in order for them to fully function in society.


Corliss group has taken great efforts in providing such services to these individuals with specialized needs. Hence, aside from providing training in day-centers in Warren, RI, it also has a Residential Program for those who wish to express their own independence. Corliss  provides these individuals the support they need in the matter of "personal care, shopping, housekeeping, laundry, food preparation, socialization and money management." These individuals are "encouraged to live independently and maintain their own apartment" and to get involved in the community-at-large.


This is definitely a notch higher than those who require more supervision or care in accomplishing essential activities of  daily living. These are people who not only have acquired the skills and the confidence to become income-earners but also have the abilities to express themselves in other fields such as the arts, music, sports and other meaningful activities.


The program provides three individuals the chance to share an apartment unit on a 24-hour basis, including all the support they need "to develop the skills needed to learn, live and work successfully in the community." And so, aside from the daily domestic chores and routines mentioned above, they are trained to incorporate themselves into their community as independent individuals through meaningful engagement.


Specifically, these individuals are given Case Management support in order for them to acquire housing assistance, food stamps, heating assistance and other essential domestic needs. Likewise, professional nursing care is provided for staff training and to help residents to maintain their health. All in all, Corliss group allows these participants the opportunity to be totally equipped as anybody else in the community through the special support it provides. Otherwise, they will remain unable to lead meaningful and independent lives. It takes awareness and compassion for people to realize that certain needs are not met by some individuals because of certain disabilities. Corliss, through its work and its website, fills up this gap in the minds and hearts of people. What it is doing is practically raising a big, extended family within a town and looking after its welfare on a daily basis – something that will daunt any ordinary parent from facing or even considering.


Yes, Corliss, Institute, Inc. has been doing for many years now and accomplishing so much good and providing excellent service to many. Not just in providing opportunities to live independently but also to acquire gainful employment through proper training. Corliss has an expanded Employment Program to provide members with "training in work habits, filling out applications, using public transportation, and the nuts and bolts of work habits." They are given training in "interpersonal relations on the job and how to handle changes in co-workers or supervisors." Promptness and wearing proper apparel are also inculcated among members.


Simple but essential skills that most of us take for granted. Corliss group has shown the way to opening the hearts and minds of many people to reach out to the disadvantaged members of society.


Creo Illustrate has a range of libraries of illustration features and techniques such as Inset Views, Symbols and Page sizes.  Each of these libraries is pre-configured with a bunch of examples to show you what's possible... but the intention is that you customize these to suit your own needs.  That's where this tutorial comes in. 


This video will show you how to customize the following libraries:

  • Inset Views
  • Symbols
  • Annotations including Callouts
  • Page sizes


This tutorial is intended for system administrators, or at least you will need access to your user APPDATA area and have some knowledge about editing XML files.  Be sure to save a safe copy of any files before you edit them, just in case you need to revert back to the original.


I hope you find this helpful!

I’m excited to announce that the call for presentations for PTC Live Global 2015, June 7-10, in Nashville, TN, is now open. And I encourage you to submit your proposal by November 17.

Why should you present? You’ve heard a lot of the numerous perks you’ll enjoy,  including a free registration to the event, the appreciation of peers for sharing your knowledge, the opportunity to be recognized as a top presenter, and the chance to connect with PTC product managers about your content.


But there are other ways that you can benefit – both personally and professionally – from the experience that you may not have anticipated.

We hear from past presenters that they also get feedback and new ideas from the users in their sessions that have helped them back at work.


For example, Walt Brewer of PACCAR Inc., said:

“The biggest benefit of being a presenter is the exposure and feedback I get from users who attend the session. There were…discussions on the complexities of the implementations, and ideas on what other firms are trying to accomplish with the software. All of those discussions resulted in expanding my thought processes and considerations as I work on the next set of PTC Windchill/PTC Creo solutions.”

Additionally, the process of creating your presentation has helped presenters increase their understanding of your past experiences, approaches and techniques, and ultimately improve upon them.

“I would argue that when preparing the presentation, when you have to put yourself in some stranger’s shoes to

develop a message that is easily understood, you are automatically reviewing your past experience with a critical eye. In other terms, as you think of the lessons learned, you learn to do better in the future,” said Rob Dolci, Country Manager of Aizoon U.S.


Our presenters have also said that the experience of rehearsing and sharing their material has had a lasting impact on their presentation skills.


Ulf Handberg of said, “My self-confidence was boosted by doing a presentation in another country, in another language, to people I had never met before…I think that the experience of being a presenter is very useful when getting back to work. The requirements for thorough preparations and the help from the content team and webcasts made the presentation really powerful.”


These are just a few examples of the unexpected ways you can benefit from presenting at PTC Live Global 2015. For additional perspectives, check out our past-presenter testimonials. And don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions during any state of the process.


Best regards,


Ann McGrath

The biggest issue facing manufacturers is how to efficiently share large volume of digital product content created throughout the product development process. CAD tools are typically used to create the design data but this data needs to be accessed by numerous stakeholders in the downstream organizations to visualize, measure, analyze, approve, manufacture, inspect and service the design.


There are a couple ways your designs can be visualized by users across the enterprise, and importantly, outside of engineering. You can either use the native CAD tool – such asPTC Creo — which means every user will need some amount of training. Or you can use….

PTC Creo 3.0 introduces a new Align capability within Freestyle which allows PTC Creo Parametric users to create and drive freeform, stylized designs parametrically. Users can now connect their Freestyle geometry to other external geometry with positional, tangent, or normal conditions. Furthermore, any change made to this external geometry will be reflected in the Freestyle geometry during regeneration.


Paul Sagar, Director of Product Management, gives us an introductory overview of the new Align feature:

PTC Creo 3.0 introduces a new “Align” feature within Freestyle. With this capability, you can align the freestyle control mesh to external curves and edges and therefore parametrically control your freestyle geometry.


In this example, we will be working on a bike model and building the surfaces around the pedal. These surfaces are defined parametrically by the neighboring geometry. We will start with a sphere, and build out the geometry to get it close to the neighboring surfaces.



Building out geometry with Freestyle, it will be defined parametrically by the neighboring geometry



In this case, the part is symmetrical, so we are able to mirror it.


Next, you can select the faces you want to delete and leave open. You can then take the edges of the open loops and align them to the edges of the neighboring geometry.




Aligning the edges of the part to the neighboring geometry



After the loops and edges are aligned, you can specify the continuity between the Freestyle geometry and the surrounding geometry. In this example, we will create a normal connection.


While we continue to refine the shape, we need to define the location for the pedals. Again, when the geometry is close, you can align the external edges of the geometry.

Here is a look at the completed geometry:



A look at the final geometry



Finally, you can return to the top level assembly and make changes to the skeleton model that is driving the shape of the frame. When regenerated, the Freestyle geometry is also updated to maintain the connection and tangency to the surrounding geometry.




Changes to the skeleton model will be automatically reflected in the Freestyle model during regeneration



In conclusion, with the new Align capability you will be able to more effectively combine freeform, organic geometry with dimension based design intent.

Fenton Law Group has been widely recognized as a leader in legal issues related to medical staffs. We represent physicians and other healthcare providers throughout all phases of medical staff privilege disputes, including investigations, peer review hearings and appeals.


When peer review bodies restrict privileges or even when physicians resign during investigations, the consequent reporting to the Medical Board of California under California Business & Professions Code Section 805 and to the National Practitioner Data Bank can wreak havoc on physicians’ lives. Often, physicians are caught off-guard by the threat of reporting of privilege restrictions, suspensions, and non-renewals. Our medical lawyers work with clients to avoid reportable events and defend our clients against peer review proposed actions in staff privilege hearings.


We are known for landmark decisions expanding physician rights, such as our victory in Sahlolbei v. Providence Healthcare, Inc. (2003) 112 Cal. App. 4th 1137.  In the case of Hayes vs. Cedars Sinai, Fenton Law Group’s victory established the right of a physician to a hearing when his application for staff privileges was denied.  Following the landmark case of Potvin v. Metropolitan Life Ins. Co (2000) 22 Cal.4th 1060, founding partner Henry Fenton received a “Lawyer of the Year” award for his instrumental role in expanding the fair procedure rights of physicians to the managed care context. In recent years, Fenton Law Group medical lawyers have represented numerous physicians employed by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in a wave of peer review actions within the state prison medical system flowing from Plata v. Davis.


In addition to our leadership role on behalf of physicians, Fenton Law Group also serves as medical staff counsel to several physician-controlled medical staffs and works with provider-owned healthcare facilities across California to ensure compliance with the requirements of the peer review and credentialing process. We are relied upon as authorities on all aspects of the peer review and credentialing process. Our attorneys have also been asked to serve as hearing officers in peer review hearings.


Library Models

Thanks to the reusability of 3D models in Creo we only have to make a part once and we can show it in an infiniate number of assemblies and drawing views. In the past much of these detail views would have been drawn with only the necessary detail the drafter determined to show that component. Today these fine details still impact us as minor processing delays rather than time spent sketching or stenciling them.


Who makes library models?

This has been a point of contention among our users and administrators. The users think the administrators should be modeling up library parts as a support function, but the administrators think the end users should be modeling the parts. It becomes a game of back and forth.


The Engineer's point of view:

I just want to put a bolt in my assembly. I don't have time to make a bolt. There should be a library of parts already made for me like going to the hardware store to pick one out.


The Administrator's point of view:

I don't know what bolt you want. I don't have time to make a bolt for everyone who asks. Nor do I have the time to create every bolt in the world. You know the requirements for your item, you should make it.


Sure there are libraries to purchase, and there are many vendor models available for download, but these can become costly or time consuming to collect.

There is also a method of creating generic models which reperesent multiple part numbers so for a fastener you might have a generic head to represent a hex, button, slotted, phillips, etc. and then managed part numbers by Windchill Part association.


We've come to a bit of a balance. One administrator started a project to determine the most commonly used fasteners across the engineering groups. These were then created with large family tables (though I would recommend much smaller family tables grouped by material, or some other factors). Some items were purchased for new projects.


New model needs will be developed by the engineers as they are needed. These items are then submitted to a library so everyone can use them. Anything that becomes a large family table will be maintained in a library primarily by library administrators. Now of course there has to be a level of quality control and commonality if these models are to be reused by a large number of engineers, designers, and drafters. Our biggest reasoning is the engineers have to research the parts they need for each use case, and many times fasteners can be copied from existing ones and slightly modified. The second biggest reason is we have a limited number of library administrators, and a large number of engineers. Many times an engineer created model will be expanded into a family table if it is needed to fill others needs.


The downside? Sometimes duplicate models are created, often the better modeled one, or the one used the most will become a library part, and the others will be marked as obsolete and not to be used. They are then to be replaced with the library copy everywhere used. Proper naming conventions can help but it also depends a lot on the ability to find items through search.


Each company has their own decisions to make in this matter. What's your approach?



Now for some resources, this is just a few I'm aware of, feel free to add your own resources in the comments.
I make no claims for any of these sites or rules for reuse on the models they offer.
