In Detail

The purpose of Pro/ENGINEER Advanced Tutorial is to introduce users to some of the more advanced features, commands, and functions in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0. Each lesson concentrates on a few of the major topics and the text attempts to explain the "why's" of the commands in addition to a concise step-by-step description of new command sequences.

This book is suitable for a second course in Pro/ENGINEER for users who understand the features covered in Roger Toogood's Pro/ENGINEER Tutorial. The style and approach of the previous tutorial have been maintained.

The material covered in this tutorial represents an overview of what is felt to be commonly used and important functions. These include customization of the working environment, advanced feature creation (sweeps, round sets, draft and tweaks, UDF's, patterns and family tables), layers, Pro/PROGRAM, and advanced drawing and assembly functions.

Pro/ENGINEER Advanced Tutorial consists of eight lessons. A continuing theme throughout the lessons is the creation of parts for a medium-sized modeling project. The project consists of a small three-wheeled utility cart. Project parts are given at the end of each lesson that utilize functions presented earlier in that lesson. Final assembly is performed in the last lesson.
