Goals and contents


Students are given intensive training in Pro/Engineer Wildfire as well as Windchill PDMLink, a product lifecycle management system.

The aforementioned are high-end CAD & PLM systems. Comparable systems are CATIA & Smarteam or Unigraphics & Teamcenter.

Building on the course, a complex design task is dealt with by independently working teams as part of the machine design workshop. The results are modelled in Pro/Engineer and drawings are derived from this. This allows students to examine their observations closely and improve certainty in association with the software.

  • Basic and advanced sketching
  • Simple and advanced basic features
  • Use of engineering features

  • Designing with skeletal parts
  • Tools for visualisation and documentation
  • Basics of drafting
  • Using the associativity of drawing and model
  • Family tables, transparencies
  • Structure operations
  • Informational and analysis tools
  • Use of PDMLink webclients
  • Use of PDMLink workspaces in Pro/Engineer
  • Administration of own product data in PDMLink
