Pro/ENGINEER-Foundation II

Pro/ENGINEER-Foundation II

ptclogoAll Pro/ENGINEER packages build on and extend the basic, symptoms broad capabilities of Pro/ENGINEER-Foundation. As a stand-alone package it allows the user to create detailed solid and sheet metal components, view build assemblies, design weldments, and produce fully documented production drawings and photo-realistic renderings. Built on the Pro/ENGINEER parametric solid-modeling kernel, it offers many industry-standard and direct data exchange translators for sharing and re-using data.

Capabilities:

Assemblies – define and create complex assemblies.
