Advanced Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0


Course Code:  TRN-2175-T
Course Length: 3 Days

The Advanced Part Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 training course teaches you how to use advanced part modeling techniques in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 to improve your product designs.

In this course, you will learn how to create and modify design models using advanced sketching techniques and feature creation tools. You will also learn how to reuse existing design geometry when creating new design models. Pro/FICIENCY assessments will be provided in order for you to assess your understanding of the course materials. The assessment results will also identify the class topics that require further review.

At the end of the class, you will either take an assessment via your PTC University account, or your instructor will provide training on how to do this after the class. After completing this course, you will be well prepared to work efficiently with complex product designs using Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0.
