This book originated from an introductory engineering graphics and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) courses taught at North Dakota State University and Tri-State University for the past five years. The purpose of each of these courses was to introduce the engineering student to sketching, visualization, and parametric modeling. Over the years, roughly 1200 students have taken this course from several disciplines. Because of the variety of these students' interests and backgrounds, examples for the class and this book have been taken from different areas in the engineering sciences.

At NDSU and Tri-State, the CAD program is seen as a cornerstone of the engineering program. CAD is presented in a way to teach the engineer to communicate design ideas graphically. This book was developed with that philosophy. While several chapters are devoted to describing and implementing different options in Pro/Engineer (Pro/E) for model construction, space is set aside for the techniques used in the representation of these models. For example, Chapters 16, 17, and 18 are devoted to the creation of drawings, a traditional method for visualizing three-dimensional models. Furthermore, the use of Pro/Engineer (Pro/E) for creating working drawings containing assemblies is discussed in Chapter 19. In addition, because CAD models are used in conjunction with other analysis and manufacturing software, Chapter 20 has been devoted to the Pro/Engineer (Pro/E) options for obtaining engineering information and file transfer.

This book details the use of Pro/Engineer (Pro/E) 2001 and contains all new high-resolution screen captures. The layout of the book is similar to the previous edition. However,the tutorials have been rewritten so that the steps are numerated. This makes working through the tutorials more convenient. Furthermore, the tutorials have been renumbered to reflect the chapter in which they are located. For example, Tutorial 1.1 and Tutorial 2.1 may be found in Chapters 1 and 2, respectively.

The format of the chapters is as follows. An introduction and objective section are used to lay the groundwork for what is to follow. Then, the various sections describing the Pro/Engineer (Pro/E) software options ensue. Tutorials are placed strategically within each chapter for immediate reinforcement in the use of the options. At the end of each chapter, a summary detailing the material discussed in the chapter is provided. Furthermore, a numerated list of steps for each option is provided. This list may be used as a reference.

Throughout the book, Pro/Engineer (Pro/E) options and commands are written in italic face. The models used in the tutorials form two groups. One group contains models which are parts of small projects used to reinforce the options being considered. The second group contains models from larger projects. These models from the larger projects are used at the end of Chapter 19 to construct assemblies. Additional exercises are provided at the end of each chapter to further reinforce the options and concepts presented in that chapter. The models in these exercises were selected to challenge the student in the use of the options under consideration.
