Applications in Sheet Metal Using Pro/SHEETMETAL and Pro/ENGINEER (Release 2001)
The targeted audience for the book is the novice and intermediate Pro/ENGINEER user. Commands are presented in a step by step approach. The text includes additional information on parts, assemblies and drawings used to create sheetmetal components and assemblies.
In a project based approach the learning process is explored through a series of design projects and objectives, each with a desired outcome. The project based approach simulates thework environment, example: 1.) Prototype stage, 2.) Part and assembly, 3.) Production drawing, 4.) Bill of Materials, 5.) Bend Order Tables and 6.) Design for manufacturing, to name a few. In each project, you build on previous learned skills and concepts. Projects in this book contain repetitive information. This is intentional. This is not a Pro/SHEETMETAL reference book.
