Pro/Engineer Wildfire 3.0 is one of the most widely used CAD/CAM software programs in the world today. Designed for a one or two semester undergraduate course for first or second year engineering students, Pro/engineer Wildfire 3.0 is an extremely beneficial book for both aspiring and newly employed engineers. The text involves creating a new part, an assembly, or drawing, using a set of Pro/E commands, walking you through the process systematically and guiding you through parametric design. While using this text, a student will create individual parts, assemblies, and drawings.
