In Detail

This book synergistically integrates the design process with the specific commands and procedures of Pro|ENGINEER through a unique presentation scheme. Users are first provided with the design information about the part or assembly and its design intent. Then, they see an overview of steps involved in modeling the part/assembly. This is accompanied by detailed instructions showing goals, steps and commands in a four column presentation. The consistent approach is supplemented by many illustrations on each page. Each chapter adds new information while reinforcing key concepts.

The focus of the text is on teaching actual design modeling using Pro|ENGINEER rather than teaching a set of commands. The book illustrates the part, drawing and assembly creation with several industrial examples. Theses parts fit together in the final chapters to form one large assembly.
