Introduction to Pro/E

This tutorial will teach you the basic features of Pro/E including how to access part files, manipulate the display, and orient parts. You should complete this tutorial before attempting any other tutorials.

figure. You should now see the graphics area where parts will be displayed. Select [File] -> [Set Working Directory] from the menu bar, and select the folder in which you downloaded the part. All work you do will be saved to the folder you set as the working directory. Select [File] -> [Open] from the menu bar, and select the part you downloaded. Figure 0.2 shows the main components of the Pro/E window. The part you are currently working on is displayed in the Graphics Area. The top Tool Bar lets you modify the view and perform common actions such as saving and opening files. The right Tool Bar contains the icons which let you create parts and features. The Menu Bar contains many of the same options as the Tool Bars, but in the form of menus rather than icons. When creating a part or feature, you will use the Dashboard to select options. The Model Tree lists all the features comprising the part that is currently displayed.
