This presentation and demonstration explains the differences between and the capabilities of Pro/ENGINEER Manikin Lite (free as of Wildfire 4.0 M060), Pro/ENGINEER Manikin extension, and Pro/ENGINEER Manikin Analysis Extension. Topics include: Analyses for material handling, lifting/lowering, push/pull, and carrying. How to insert, position, and manipulate a manikin. How to apply Continue reading
Configuration files help you to customize and personalize Pro/ENGINEER’s appearance, behavior, and functionality. By taking advantage of config.pro and config.win files, users can optimize the software’s perfomance and convenience, and ultimate maximize productivity. In this presentation and software demonstration, we will discuss the following topics: Config.pro vs config.win The three Continue reading
More than just a drawing format and title block, drawing templates allow for rapid drawing creation with standardized views, notes and more. By leveraging template models along with template drawings, drawing creation time can be halved or more while increasing quality and standardization. Whether every part you design is completely Continue reading
