Hello friends, I am supposed to answer a interview for designer post.

Please could you help me with the following questions of ProE, as expertise in ProE is a prerequisite... 1)What is trial file? 2)How to interchange the positions of the rows of a parametric BOM in detailing? 3)What is the difference in config.pro and config.win? 4)What is k-factor and Y-factor? 5)What is formulae of developed length? 6)What is datum target? 7)What is.dtl file? 8)What are snap lines? 9)How to use family tables in Assembly mode? 10)What is parametric format? 11)What is publish geometry? 12)What is package? 13)What is envelop? 14)What is ribbon? 15)What is the difference between reroute and redefine? 16)What is simplified representation and skeleton model? 17)What is restructure? 18)How to associate a particular independent text with a view? Phew... Waiting for ur reply. Thank you. ...SURAJ P.S: could you please pose some other proe related questions... and provide thei r respective answers too ANSWERS: 1. trail file is a text file that pro/e generates, ercording everything the user is doing on pro/engineer. and is pro/e crash; one can run the trail file to sav e his data. 2. never heard that this kind of thing is possible. 3. config.pro is setting of pro/e lie units. searchpaths. map keys ets. config. win is setting of interface. 4. k factor and y factors are formula use to calculate developing length of shee t metal. 5. L=a+(R=q*s/2)pi*angle/180 +b.................... where a,b.......... are the stright length, R radius, q correction factor and s material thickness 6. datum targets is used to indicate critical measurement points on the drawing 7. .dtl file controls the behaviour of drawings. 8. vlad has answered this

drawings? 3. you can take one part from an assembly and put it in some sub assembly and visa versa 18. 16. 15. 14.pro file? 5. The Ribbon surface is tangent to reference curves that intersect the base curve. reroute is taking the feature up or down in model tree. What is the difference between File -> Erase and File -> Delete? 8. and can be used in making a new part. assemblies. simplified representation is to make the part or assembly simple. What is a trail file? 6. A Ribbon surface is a datum that represents a tangent field created along a base curve. have I lo st my work? ANSWERS: . restructure is placing the restructuring the parts in assembly. from referance of whisn other parts are made. What is the difference between object reference and geometric associativity? 2. What are the file extensions given to sketches. and redifine is def ining the feature again.package is not fully constrained componenet in an assembly 13. one user can take one envelpo from the assembly and work on it.9. use group comand situated in edit tab QUESTIONS: Questions: 1. skelton model is a part having some datums and surface. publish geometry is a tool in pro/e that can collect surfaces. perametric formats are the formats that take information from the part or as sembly and changes acordingly. same way as ysed in part mode 10. What is the meaning of "store back"? 7. How should you create a new part or assembly? Why? 4. If I use Window in Pro/Engineer and Close without saving my model. what is the current object? 10. envelop is a simplyfied version of assembly used when working as a team. parts. datums and ot her fearture. (i hope i explained it right ) 12. After performing a File. 11. Save As. 17. containing only the required fetures ar parts. What is the use of config. What is the difference between File -> Save and File -> Backup? 9.

No. This file can be retrieved and edi ted and replayed to retrieve work lost during an unexpected failure of a session . datum planes.asm. This file also contains user macros which are called map keys. 10. .. Drawings. File save stores the object in the directory where it was opened from and fil e backup copies the object to the specified directory using the same name.. The trail file is a record of every menu pick and screen pick and keyboard in put during an entire session of pro/engineer. You should always create a new part or assembly using the copy from option in the new dialog box and copy a start part. Sketches . saved views. Parts. 6. After performing a file save as command the current object is not a new objec t it is the old object. 8. 4. The config. 2. Object reference is a data management term that has to do with the way one ob ject references another. 7..sec.prt.pro file contains configuration options which control the behavior of Pro/ENGINEER. File erase removes the object from the ram of the computer and file delete re moves the object from the disk or hard drive of the computer.drw 3. This ensures the proper layer setup. parameters.1. etc. Assemblies. 5. Geometric associativity has to do with how a parts geom etry can be changed from the part or drawing. 9.. 'Store back' refers to the behavior in which an object is stored back to the directory from where it was opened not necessarily the current working directory .
