Pro/e help, training, tutorials and other resources

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 & WF2:

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.
CADquest, on the other hand, is textbook based with downloadable training files.
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, & 3 and Advanced Surfacing 1,
2, & 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.

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 school, 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:

has the advantage of spreading what would normally be a 40 hour sprint through
a ton of new material over an 8-12 week period. Lot's more opportunity to get
comfortable with the software and likely new concepts of design, lots more tube
time and time to ask questions of an experienced user. It's where I got most of
my
formal training; I highly recommend it.
Numerous books, one by Roger Toogood, another by L. G. Lamit and several
specifically on sheetmetal with WF2. All available on Amazon for under $60, they
provide a good, broad overview of working with WF2. All by professional writers
and teachers. Lamit, for example, has been teaching Pro/e for over a decade at De
Anza College, Cupertino CA (Silicon Valley) and has written several books on
Pro/e. Toogood's authored most of the Student Edition Tutorials since I-squared
at
least. These guys know Pro/e.
Student Edition from Journey Ed:
formatting link
$150, you get the Flex3C version of the software ($20,000 retail value), help
files and one of the above books on CD with training files in SE format. Pro/e
was
the first, and for a while, the only major player in solids modelling, with a
Student Edition of the program plus a longstanding, comprehensive training
program
accessible from the SE. On your own PC, with complete autonomy, you have full
access to the entire power of Pro/ENGINEER design software. And most PCs, with a
decent, OpenGL-compatible graphics card, can do the job.
PTC University:
formatting link
't underestimate learning it straight "from the horses mouth". Don't know what
it takes to sign up for this, probably a year's maintenance/support agreement,
paid in advance. Still, if you've got it, this is a valuable resource: what you'd
get in a class, no travel involved, all you need is a terminal with pro:
complete,
comprehensive, convenient. Sit at home and learn from PTC. I think this is
extremely cool. Just like their webcasts, 'How to' and 'Tips and Tricks'
sessions.
PTC offers, directly, and indirectly supports, more educational and training
opportunities than any other corporation on earth. The user community lags
pitifully behind; not much in the way of free, user developed tutorials and
training resources available out there. I've heard of some university stuff;
also,
some stuff on websites, but most is out of date, scattered, fragmentary, partial
elements of a comprehensive training program, and, of this, the community offers
nothing.

Also called Pro/e User, this site is a collection of useful links plus a download
site with, as are most, outdated files. Would be nice if they actually (whoever
'they' are) tried to develop this thing. For example, they've got a list of sites
called "Companies that use Pro/e". The list is lame: extremely partial and highly
incomplete, missing big users in many areas. If they decided to be a little more
active, open, and responsible, they'd enlist the help of actual Pro/e Users to
correct their list so that it could be a valuable and reliable resource.
