FREQENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS IN Pro/ENGINEER00.What is Pro /ENGINEER?
Definition: Pro/ENGINEER is a suite of programs that are used in the design, analysis, andmanufacturing of a virtually unlimited range of products. (Suite: Set or Groupe as a unit)Actually, Pro/E is a suite of programs that are used in the design, analysis, and manufacturing of avirtually unlimited range of products. We will be dealing only with the major front-end module usedfor part and assembly design and module creation, and production of engineering drawing. There isa wide range of additional module available to handle tasks ranging from sheet metal operations,piping layout, and model design, wiring harness design, NC machining, and other functions. Anadd-on package, Pro/MECHANICA (also from Parametric Technology), integrates with Pro/E toperform structural analysis of mechanisms. Pro/MECHANICA can also do sensitivity studies anddesign optimization, based on the model created in Pro/E.In a nutshell, Pro/ENGINEER is a parametric, feature-based solid modeling system.
01.What is the difference between object reference and geometric associativity?
Object Reference: reference with which we can draw in sketch.Geometric Associatively: it is changes made in part updated in assembly.
02.What are the File extensions given to parts? Assemblies? Drawings? Sketches?
File extension given as follows:-Part - *.prt-Assemblies - *.asm-Drawing - *.drw-Sketches - *.sec
03.How should you create a new part or assembly? Why?
Creating a new part:Click the “Create new object” short-cut button figure.1 below, or select File > New. A window willopen figure.2 below showing a list of different types and sub-types of objects to create (part,assemblies, drawing, and so on). Select
Part / Solid
A default name for the new part is presented at the bottom of the window, something like
. It is an almost better to have a more descriptive name. So, double click (left mouse) onthis text to highlight it and then type in
(without the square bracket) as your part name and press
