This tutorial will show you how to find a component in the model tree. For example, a part that might be located several sub-assemblies down. This method will use the main graphics window and an ICON to find the desired component that is hidden in the model tree. It will automatically scroll the model tree to the component, highlight it and expand the model tree, revealing the location.... (Show more)(Show less)
Learn the 3 different ways to copy the mounting ear of a model. The first method mirrors selected features, the second uses paste special to apply a rotate transformation, and the third method copies surfaces.... (Show more)(Show less)
One of the more commonly overlooked analysis types is the One-Sided Volume Analysis. This is a great way to leverage the associative properties of Pro/ENGINEER for what may seem like an otherwise obscure task; calculating volume. While the Mass Properties can give you the overall volume of a model, the One-Sided Volume analysis takes things one step further, and provides a more practical analysis result, the usable volume of a container. The following will outline how to quickly setup and make use of this type of analysis feature. (This works best with shelled geometry).... (Show more)(Show less)
