Advanced Part Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire

3.0
Course Code

TRN-1831-T

Course Length

2 days

Overview
The Advanced Part Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 training course teaches you
how to use advanced part modeling techniques in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 to improve
your product designs. 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 3.0.

Duration
2 days

Prerequisites

Introduction to Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0.
Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0 Update from Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0.

Audience
This course is intended for mechanical designers, design engineers and related roles. The
topics in this course are also available as Web-based training courses.

Topics
