Introduction to Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0


Course Code:  TRN-2169
Course Length: 5 Days

This course is designed for new users who want to become proficient with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0 as quickly as possible.

You will focus on learning core-modeling skills in this comprehensive, hands-on course. 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.
