Preface
The best reason for using libraries is:
1. Saving money by reusing features and parts. It is faster to design your equipment.
2. The other aspect is reducing the number of parts (and features) used in your
company.
3. The third aspect could be is to achieve a better compatibility by using standard parts.
Because it is easy to build your own libraries it is very attractive to do so.
From an European point of view some of the predefined libraries in Pro/Engineer is of no
use as they are based on American standards and build to the Inch system.
These parts of the libraries are not included in the library structure at DTU.

Predefined libraries
Basic Library
The BASIC LIBRARY is a collection of commonly used parts and features ready to use in your
assemblies and parts.
Contents of the Basic Library
The BASIC LIBRARY contains the following sections:
• Common features—A collection of commonly used features (pertaining to geometry,
design, piping, and so on) of generic shapes (such as hexagonal, oval, and octagonal) and
sizes. These are UDFs with cross-sections, feature attributes, relations, and layer
information built into the feature. The features are ready to use in your parts.
• Standardized parts—A collection of common fasteners (bolts, nuts, rivets, screws, and so
on) of sizes corresponding to ANSI, USAS, and other standards. The parts are easily
retrievable using common callouts (such as basic diameter and rivet size) and are ready to
use in your assemblies.
• Metric parts—A collection of common fasteners in metric sizes that conform to ANSI
standards. These parts are also retrievable using common callouts, and are ready to use in
assemblies.
• ISO fasteners and parts—A collection of common fasteners and parts that conform to the
ISO standard. These parts are retrievable using common callouts and are ready to use in
assemblies.

Features library.
Library features offer the following advantages:
• The features are already made, completely defined with appropriate dimensioning schemes
and relations, and are generically sized and located on a reference part. This means that
you can use the feature in your part, sized and placed to suit your needs.
• Library features can be modified by you and stored back in the library where other users
can access them. This allows you to add a family table to the feature if you have specific
sizes of the feature you use frequently. This saves your users the time of modifying the
dimensions of the feature when they retrieve it.
• You can also add your own features to the feature library directory, making all your own
UDFs available as library features. Expanding the library enhances its use because your
users will not have to spend time recreating your generic features.
To use an existing UDF, you need either a Pro/FEATURE or a Pro/LIBRARYACCESS license.
To create your own UDFs, you need a Pro/FEATURE license.

The Electric Symbol Libraries


The ELECTRICAL SYMBOL LIBRARY is a collection of commonly used electrical symbols to use in electrical
schematic diagrams. (Not installed at DTU).

The Human factor library


The Human Factors Library is a library of Pro/ENGINEER parts which represent the human figure.
The HUMAN FACTORS LIBRARY is based on nominal body dimensions and ranges of motion, which were
derived from independent analysis and review of data. Six models are available: three for adult males and three for
adult females. For each sex, the three models represent the low (5-percentile), average (50-percentile), and high (95-
percentile) ends of the consolidated data. These models are simplified and are not intended to represent the full range
of body sizes and types.
The HUMAN FACTORS LIBRARY is divided into six sublibraries, each representing one of the six body types
mentioned above. Each sublibrary contains one mannequin assembly and its related body parts. In addition, the
sublibrary contains a layout file that contains two tables. The first table displays the body joint angles that
correspond to one of three selectable fixed positions (Standing, Walking, and Driving), while the second table lists
all the main dimensions that make up that body type.
Each assembly also has a set of rays coming out from its eyes. The rays originate at the center of vision and
represent the range of views for that particular position. You can use the Perspective command in Pro/ENGINEER
to determine what the model sees.
To use the HUMAN FACTORS LIBRARY, you must have Pro/NOTEBOOK™ and Pro/ASSEMBLY.

The Mold base Library


The MOLD BASE LIBRARY is a collection of standard mold bases and component parts, based on the D-M-E,
HASCO, and FUTABA company, and FUTABA Corporation standard catalogs, ready to use in your
Pro/MOLDESIGN™ assemblies.
The MOLD BASE LIBRARY contains the following:
• Mold base assemblies—Standard mold bases in a range of sizes, including various sizes of plates and
housings
• Component parts—A range of standard parts to use in your mold bases, including core pins, ejector pins,
ejector sleeves, stop pins, support pillars, leader pins, shoulder and straight bushings, cap screws, stripper
bolts, sprue bushings, and locating rings

The Pipe fitting Library


The PIPE FITTING LIBRARY is a collection of commonly used fittings and features ready to use in your
assemblies and parts.
The PIPE FITTING LIBRARY contains the following:
• Fittings—A collection of common fittings (hose, solder, flange, and so on) of sizes that conform to both SAE
and ASME/ANSI standards. You can easily retrieve these parts to use in your assemblies using common
callouts.
• Features—A collection of commonly used features (ports and studs) of generic shapes and sizes. These are
UDFs with cross-sections, feature attributes, relations and layer information built into the feature. The
features are ready to use in your parts.

The Pipe and Heating Library


The PIPING and HEATING LIBRARY is a collection of commonly used HVAC, HPA, and pipe fitting and valve
symbols to use in schematic diagrams.

The PIPING & HEATING LIBRARY Catalog contains illustrations of all the piping and heating library symbols and
all the information necessary to find any symbol.

The Tooling Library


The TOOLING LIBRARY is a collection of commonly used manufacturing tools, industry standard toolholders, and
fixtures ready to use in your manufacturing operations.
The library contains the following:
• Tools—A collection of common tools (mills, taps, and drills) of sizes corresponding to ANSI (metric and
American Std.) standards. The tool parameters are easily retrieved using the Tool Library command when you
establish operation parameters. For operation parameter specification, only parameter data is retrieved.
However, the tools are defined completely with three-dimensional features, so they can be retrieved in Part
and Assembly mode as well.
• Toolholders—A collection of industry standard toolholders. Toolholders will accommodate tools (mills, taps,
drills, and reamers) of different shank styles (straight, Morse Taper, or Weldon) available in SECTION I of
this library, or tools created and stored by the user. Toolholders come in a variety of shank styles (straight
shank, Caterpillar V-Flange, BT (JMBTA) Flange, Quick Change/NMTB, and Morse Taper) to interface with
milling machines, drilling machines, or machining centers.
• Fixtures—A collection of commonly used manufacturing fixtures (clamps, holding plates, chucks and jaws,
and so on) of generic sizes. The fixtures can be retrieved in Part, Assembly, and Manufacturing modes, and
assembled in a variety of ways to support your workpiece.

Tutorial
Threaded holes and srews
1. In a dummy part as shown, a pattern of 6 threaded holles has to be
created.
2. A cover with a pattern of 6 holes has to be created.
3. An assembly has to be created and the dummy part and the cover
have to be assembled..
4. Finally a drawing with the assembly has to be created in order to
see that all parts fits properly together.
The dummy part
After modeling the dummy part the threaded holes are to be created.
Feature > Hole.
1) Mark: Standard Hole Á
2) Ajust Screw Size to M10x1.5
3) Ajust the depth of the hole(s) to 30 mm, Accept
with <cr>.
4) Ajuster thread length to 25 mm Accept with
<cr>.
5) Under Hole Placement point as close as possible
to the point where the hole has to be placed.
6) Under Placement Type: change to Diameter.
7) As an Axial Reference: point at the Axis for hole
pattern..
8) The Diameter has to be ajusted to 80 mm.
9) As an Angular Reference:choose TOP. (Activate
if necessary)

10) Ajust the Angle to 90°.


Finish the threaded hole creation.
Mark the describing text for the hole and thread, right
click and ERASE.
Reorient the dummy part to be seen from the: FRONT.
Feature > Pattern
Choose the angle (90°), which is the basis for the hole
creation and give the new value: 60°.
