Advanced Surface Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire
In this course, you will learn how to incorporate complex, high-curvature shapes into product designs. You will also learn how to conceptualize and design style products and how to create surface models using scan data. In this course, you will gain a thorough understanding of the new modeling philosophy and collaborative capabilities of Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire.
After completing this course, you will know how to create high curvature, complex surfaces with tangent and curvature continuities. You will also know how to create blends and transition surfaces, interactively manipulate tangencies, and use reference data to build reverse engineering or styling models.
You will receive the following items with this course:
- Free Quick Reference Card that enables you to quickly look up frequently-used information when working with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire.
- Color student guides that complement the lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on lab exercises.
- A Pro/FICIENCY account for accessing assessment questions and supplementary training material. The assessment questions are provided to help both you and the instructor evaluate your progress in learning the skills covered during the lectures and labs. The account also provides access to Web-based training (WBT) developed by CADTRAIN. The WBT can be used during class to reinforce the lab exercises and can also be used after the class is over as refresher training. The Pro/FICIENCY account enables you to access up to five CADTRAIN learning modules.
This course is intended for product designers, design engineers, mechanical designers, and industrial designers.
