The eleven (squad) lessons in this tutorial introduce (inform) students to Pro/ENGINEER's Wildfire 5.0 design (organisation) capabilities. The tutorial covers the major (field) concepts and frequently (ofttimes) used commands required to advance (front) from a novice (initiate) to an intermediate (grey) user level. Major topics include (allow) part and assembly (gathering) creation, and creation of engineering (field) drawings. Also illustrated are the major (field) functions that make (attain) Pro/ENGINEER a parametric solid (solidified) modeler. These topics are further (boost) demonstrated in the video (recording) files that come (become) with every book.
Although the commands are presented in a click-by-click manner, an effort (try) has been made, in addition (constituent) to showing/illustrating the command (bidding) usage, to explain (vindicate) why certain (destined) commands are being (existence) used (utilised) and the relation (traffic) of feature (feature) selection and construction (cerebration) to the overall (coverall) part (conception) design (organisation) philosophy. Moreover, since error (nonachievement) recovery is an important (essential) skill, considerable (goodish) time is spent exploring the created models (in fact, intentionally (designedly) inducing some (whatever) errors), so that users will (module) become comfortable (easy) with the "debugging" phase (form) of model (help) creation.
At the end (modify) of each (apiece) lesson is a short (brief) quiz reviewing the new (newborn) topics covered (awninged) in that chapter. Following the quiz (examine) are several (individual) simple "exercise" parts that can (crapper) be created using new (newborn) commands taught in that lesson. In addition (constituent) to these an ongoing (current) project throughout the book (aggregation) is also included. This project (send) consists of several (individual) parts that are introduced with the early (primeval) lessons and finally (eventually) assembled at the end.
