Advanced Assembly Design with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0
Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 enables you to create complex assemblies using a top-down design process. In this course you will learn how to use Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 to create and manage complex assemblies using top-down design techniques. In the top-down design process, you start an assembly design by creating a layout. The layout contains specifications and parameters that are used to control the entire assembly design. Then you create a preliminary assembly structure. This structure contains the components and their hierarchy within the assembly. Next, you use skeletons to define critical component dimensions and mounting locations, space requirements, and the motion between the assembly components. Finally, you create component geometry by referencing the skeletons and sharing design information within the assembly.
In addition, you will also learn how to reduce file size and regeneration time in complex assemblies by using simplified representations. Simplified representations enable you to exclude components that are unnecessary to the current design task, thereby reducing geometry detail and improving system response times.
After completing this advanced course you will be well prepared to work efficiently with large, complex product designs using Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0.
At the end of each day, you use the skills assessments to reinforce your understanding of the course topics. Your instructor utilizes the results from the anonymous skills assessments as the basis for daily review sessions.
