Looking for Pro/E Magazines

Hi,
I am looking for any magazines that deal with pro/e (hints, tips and how-to articles). Something I could receive in the mail would be fine,
but on-line magazines would be fine also. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks Mr.B

All that I can find are web sites. However, there are many other resources on Pro/e. Below is a FAQ answering "Where can I get help, training and support on Pro/e?"</DIV> <DIV>_________________</DIV> <DIV> <DIV class=Section1> <P class=MsoBodyText>For help with Pro/e, start with this. It's the user area of the PTC website which has several free introductory tutorials on WF &amp; WF2:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><A href="http://www.ptc.com/community/proewf2/newtools/index.htm "><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Courier New'">http://www.ptc.com/community/proewf2/newtools/index.htm </SPAN></A><o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText>The three listed below provide professional training courses on every function within Pro/e, including on Intralink PDM. All offer project-based, hands-on training. CADTRAIN is strictly CBT, everything online, downloadable training files, Camtasia based demos, onscreen tutorials with screen captured graphics.<SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </SPAN>CADquest, on the other hand, is <SPAN class=GramE>textbook</SPAN> based with downloadable training files.<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText>Those from CADTRAIN and CADquest are full, PTC-style courses and parallel PTC's course structure. Frotime, which also does CBT, has shorter, more partial tutorial style training. They're approaching course structure by offering several tutorials on the same functionality, such as Surfacing 1, 2, &amp; 3 and Advanced Surfacing 1, 2, &amp; 3. With each costing around $15 and a Surfacing Subscription (6-8 tutorials) costing $60, they have pricing structure suited to invididuals who don't have corporate resources behind them. In addition, about one into course in each series is free.<o:p></o:p></P> <H1>CADTRAIN<o:p></o:p></H1> <P class=MsoList><A href="http://www.cadtrain.com /"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Courier New'">http://www.cadtrain.com /</SPAN></A><o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoList>CADquest<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoList><A href="http://www.cadquest.com /"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Courier New'">http://www.cadquest.com /</SPAN></A><o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoList>Frotime<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoList><A href="http://www.frotime.com /"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Courier New'">http://www.frotime.com /</SPAN></A><o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText>Community Colleges and Universities: PTC has an extensive network of schools that either train students in Pro/e software or use it to teach drafting/modelling/engineering/design. If you know of such a chool, they likely have an Educational License which lets them offer any course taught by PTC. Here's a peek at the educational version and what it contains:<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><A href="http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/educational/program.jsp?&amp ;im_dbkey=33880&amp;icg_dbkey=851"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Courier New'">http://www.ptc.com/appserver/mkt/educational/program.jsp?&amp ;im_dbkey=33880&amp;icg_dbkey=851</SPAN></A><o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText>It has the advantage of spreading what would normally <SPAN class=GramE>be a 40 hour sprint</SPAN> through<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><SPAN class=GramE>a</SPAN> ton of new material over an 8-12 week period. <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place>Lot</st1:place>'s more opportunity to get<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><SPAN class=GramE>comfortable</SPAN> with the software and likely new concepts of design, lots more tube<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><SPAN class=GramE>time</SPAN> and time to ask questions of an experienced user. It's where I got most of my<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><SPAN class=GramE>formal</SPAN> training; I highly recommend it.<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoNormal>Numerous books, one by Roger Toogood, another by L.

All available on Amazon for under $60, they<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoNormal><SPAN class=GramE>provide</SPAN> a good, broad overview of working with WF2. All by professional writers<o:p></o:p></P> <P class=MsoBodyText><SPAN class=GramE>and</SPAN> teachers.

On your own PC, with complete autonomy, you have full access to the entire power of Pro/ENGINEER design software.
