Review of Pro/Engineer Tutorial Release 2000i2, September 14, 2000
Reviewer: JOSEPH D ORNDORFF from Baltimore, MD United States
I am a new user to Pro-E. My only past experience in 3-D modeling was using AutoDesks's Mechanical Desktop.
I found Toogood's tutorial to be just the ticket I needed to come up to speed quickly on how to use the major features of the software. The tutorial is very well organized and concise. I have now compledted about 75% of the lessons and feel that I can be productive at desiging complicated parts. Toogood does an outstanding job of identifing certain caveats in the program at just the right time in the lessons. Don't let the realitively small page count of the book fool you, it is packed with usefull information without a lot of elementry windows stuff and hand holding. The book is extreamly accurate when it outlays Pro-E commands and what the expected response will be.
My only criticism is that there are no color pictures. Since Pro-E has the capabiltiy to generate stunning shaded images it would have added greatly to the text. Color would also add some clarity since Pro-E uses specific colors to relay axis position and datum relationship information e.g. yellow is positive red is negative.
I would highly reccommend this book to anyone who is familiar with general mechanical design principles and is looking to quickly come up to seed with Pro-e 2000i2.
