Introduction to Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 (formerly Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0)


Course Code:  TRN-2232-T
Course Length: 5 Days

Introduction to Creo ParametricThis course is designed for new users who want to become proficient with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0 as quickly as possible. In this course, you will focus on learning core-modeling skills. Topics include sketching, part modeling, assemblies, drawings, and basic model management techniques. The course also includes a comprehensive design project that enables you to practice your new skills by creating realistic parts, assemblies, and drawings. At the end of each module, you will find a set of review questions to reinforce critical topics from that module. Your instructor will discuss these with the class.

At the end of the course, you will find a course assessment in Pro/FICIENCY intended to evaluate your understanding of the course as a whole. After completing the course you will be well prepared to work effectively on product design projects using Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire.
