Precision Learning
Precision Learning in the Classroom
PTC University uses the Precision Learning methodology to develop effective, comprehensive class
material that will improve the productivity of both individuals and organizations. PTC then teaches
using the proven instructional design principal of Tell Me, Show Me, Let Me Do:
Topics are introduced through a short presentation, highlighting the key concepts.

y
These key concepts are then reinforced by seeing them applied in the software application.

nl
You then apply the concepts through structured exercises.
After the course, a Pro/FICIENCY assessment is provided to enable you to assess your
understanding of the materials. The assessment results will also identify the class topics that

O
require further review.
At the end of the class, you will either take a Pro/FICIENCY assessment via your PTC University

se
eLearning account, or your instructor will provide training on how to do this after the class.

Precision Learning After the Class

U
Each student that enrolls in a PTC class has a PTC University eLearning account. This account will
be automatically created if you do not already have one.
As part of the class, you receive additional content in your account:
al
A Pro/FICIENCY assessment from the course content that generates a Recommended Learning
Report based on your results.
rn
A Web-based training version of the course, based on the same instructional approach of lecture,
demonstration, and exercise. The Recommended Learning Report will link directly to sections
of this training that you may want to review.
te

Please note that Web-based training may not be available in all languages. The Web-based training
is available in your account for one year after the live class.

After successfully completing this exercise, you will be able to:
Configure the mass properties of a model.
Analyze components for distance, angles, surface area, and interferences.

Scenario

y
While designing a drill at your company, your manager asks you to confirm that the component

nl
models adhere to the design specifications. For example, you need to verify the mass properties of
the fuel tank to confirm that the raw material estimates are correct. Next, you need to calculate the
surface area of the cylinder to confirm the proper thermal cooling. Also, the crankshaft's center of

O
gravity needs to be set along the axis of rotation. Finally, you need to check the engine assembly for
interferences between its components.
