Read through the five pages in this section to learn Pro/E Wildfire 2.0 basics before starting the first exercise.

Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 Core Concepts

The six core Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 concepts examined in this tutorial are:

Solid Modeling

Feature Based

Parametric

Parent / Child Relationships

Associative

Model Centric

Solid Modeling

Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 allows you to easily create 3D solid models, enabling you to visualize parts and assemblies with a realistic appearance. Based on material properties such as density, these models have mass, volume, surface area and other physical properties such as a center of gravity.

For example, consider the cast aluminum engine block shown below. This model was created in millimeters, and has the mass properties shown. The coordinate system labeled 123 indicates the center of gravity of the model.

The following are advantages of solid modeling:

If the model changes (such as increasing the number of cooling fins), all of the mass properties would automatically update.

Solid models also allow you to check tolerances and clearance/interference between components in an assembly.

VOLUME = 3.332e+04 MM^3 SURFACE AREA = 2.488e+04 MM^2 DENSITY = 2.7e-06 KG/MM^3 MASS = 8.998e-02 KG CENTER OF GRAVITY X = -0.642 MM Y = 20.508 MM Z = 24.194 MM Solid Model and its Mass Properties

Feature Based

Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 models are constructed using a series of features. Each feature builds upon the previous feature, creating the model one feature at a time. Individually each feature can be simple, but collectively can form complex parts and assemblies.

In the following figure, we have a connecting rod in the various stages of its creation:

1. An Extrude feature forms the overall shape and size of the model.

2. Additional Extrude features created at the top and bottom of the model.

3. Hole features created at the top and bottom of the model.

4. Round features created at the top and bottom of the model.

CONNECTING_ROD Features

Parametric

Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 models are driven using dimension values. If a dimension of a feature is changed, that solid feature will update. This change will then automatically propagate through the remaining features in the model, updating the entire part.

Parent/Child Relationships

Parent/Child relationships provide a powerful way to capture your "design intent" into a model. Parent/Child relationships are naturally created between features during the modeling process. When creating a feature, existing features that are referenced become parents to the new feature. Also, if the parent features are updated, the child features will automatically update accordingly.

In the following figure, the PISTON model has a height of 18.5, with a hole dimensioned 8 from the top surface. The height dimension is then modified to 24, and the model is Regenerated to update its features. Notice that the parent/child relationship between the hole and the body of the model forces the hole to move upwards to maintain the 8 dimension.

E diting Height of the PISTON

This behavior (the hole referencing the top surface) is an example of the design intent that was built into this model. Alternatively, the hole could have referenced the bottom surface, yielding a different effect when the model height is modified.

Associative & Model Centric

If a part model is changed in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0, any assemblies or drawings that reference that model will automatically update. This behavior is known as Associativity and also works in reverse- if a model dimension in a drawing is updated, the part model and the assembly it is used in will update.

The part model is the central source of design information. Once a part model is created, it can be:

Placed in an assembly- Depending on how components are assembled, the components can be stationary or allowed to move as a mechanism.

Used to create a drawing- 2D views of the model can be quickly placed on a drawing sheet, and dimensions can be automatically shown.

Model Associativity

Pro/ENGINEEER Wildfire 2.0 Interface

The following are basic components of the interface:

Graphics Window- Large gray area where the model is visible.

Navigator- collapsible panels on the left of the screen.

Browser- A multi-functional web browser, shown displaying a list of models and a small preview window in the center of the screen.

Model Tree- Lists the features of a part, or the components in an assembly on the left of the screen.

Folder Browser (not shown)- Displays on the left of the screen in place of the model tree, and lists folders on your computer or network. You can browse folders and view their contents in the Browser.

Main Menu- Located on the top of the screen, this pull-down menu has common menu options such as File, Edit, Insert, Tools, and Help.

Main Toolbar- An icon toolbar located at the top of the screen.

Feature Toolbar- An icon toolbar located at the right of the screen.

Dashboard (not shown)- A dialog bar located at the bottom of the screen when creating features.

Exercise 1: Opening, Orienting, and Editing Models

Overview- In this exercise, you will learn three basic skills that are essential when
modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0

Preview and open design models- You will use the Navigator and Browser to browse folders, preview models, and open models.

Orient design models- After opening an existing model, you will use a combination of keyboard and mouse commands to Spin, Pan, and Zoom models.

Edit existing design models- After learning basic model orientation, you will use editing options to modify existing models.

Working Directory
The Working Directory sets the default folder for opening and saving models.

Task 1-1. Open the ENGINE_BLOCK.PRT using the Navigator.

1. Start Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 if necessary. The default web page displayed in the browser is the Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 landing page.

Selecting with the Mouse


Move the mouse over a feature to highlight it. Click the left mouse button to make a selection. Cyan (light blue) highlighting indicates an item is pre-selected. Red highlighting indicates an item is selected. Once a feature is selected, edges or surfaces of the feature will highlight, and could be selected.

Task 1-3. Select the mounting flange.

1. Highlight and select a feature as shown in the following figure:

Place the cursor over the EXTRUDE_2 feature so it highlights in cyan.

Edit Definition and Drag Handles


The Edit Definition option opens the dashboard for a feature, where any desired changes to a feature can be made. A 'right-click and hold' technique is used to access popup menus, whereas a quick 'rightclick and release' will pre-highlight the next feature beneath the cursor. Drag handles are small white squares located on the yellow feature preview.

Task 1-4. Edit the definition of the mounting flange (EXTRUDE_2) to make it thicker.

1. With EXTRUDE_2 still selected, right-click and hold, and then select Edit Definition.

Extrude Feature Created

Creating a Group of Features


The next solid feature to be created is an Extruded Cut to hollow out the PISTON. In order to capture the desired dimensioning scheme for the cut, its sketch will be placed on a datum plane offset from the top surface of the model. We will start the Extrude tool and Pause it. We will then create the datum plane and the sketch. When the Extrude tool is Resumed and completed, the system automatically creates a Group in the model tree. A group allows us to edit and manipulate several features as one.

Task 2-6. Start the Extrude tool and then create a datum plane.

from the sketcher toolbar (right of the screen).

Click and release to select a location for the upper left corner of the rectangle.

Allowing the rectangle to snap to symmetry, click and release to select a location for the lower right corner of the rectangle.

Sketching Centerlines and a Rectangle

Always use a 'click-and-release', 'click-and-release' technique when sketching geometry, as opposed to holding down the left mouse button and 'dragging'.

Sketching Arcs
The Arc tool can create both 3-point and tangent-end arcs. In this task, we will be creating a Tangent Arc.

Task 2-8. Continue the sketch to create an oval shape. Begin by sketching tangent arcs using the rectangle as a guide.
