Parametric Modeling with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire: An Introduction to Pro/Engineer Wildfire by Randy H. Shih

The primary goal of this book is to introduce the aspects of Solid Modeling and Parametric Modeling. The text is a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important parametric modeling techniques and concepts. The basic premise of this book is that the more designs you create, the better you learn the software.
