Why is PTC committed to Education? Inspire students to embrace technology and pursue technology

Why is PTC committed to Education? Inspire students to embrace technology and pursue technology related careers The welfare of our customers is linked to the pipeline of technologically literate students – Example: many PTC Customers are aerospace organizations. 54% of this workforce is over 45 years old; 33% will be eligible to retire in five years • There are not sufficient numbers of students in the pipeline to replace them • Less than 10% of high school graduates pursue undergraduate degrees in engineering. Of the 10% who enter engineering, only about 50% earn a degree in engineering Prepare students for college/university engineering programmes BUILD the engineering pipeline! 4 © 2006 PTC

Installation and Deployment The installation of Pro/ENGINEER is different then Pro/DESKTOP! What does that mean to a school? What IT issues does that cause? How is Pro/ENGINEER licensed? How can I deploy Pro/ENGINEER in my school? To help users with the installation, PTC has provided a Installation and Administration guide for Pro/ENGINEER Schools Edition. There are two methods for installing Pro/ENGINEER Schools Edition On-line method Off-line method 19 © 2006 PTC

Graphics Settings Pro/ENGINEER is an Open. GL based application For the best performance each system should have an Open. GL graphics card Understanding the user demographic for all edition, it is required that the edition be able to run without Open. GL. – This is primarily due to the fact that users might be using this edition on home desktop machines and the available graphics cards may not support Open. GL. – In order to address this issue PTC has included Software Open. GL technology into the installation of Pro/E • USE_SOFTWARE_OPENGL = YES – Alternatively, you can use the following basic setting to validate graphic card issues • GRAPHICS = WIN 32_GDI 21 © 2006 PTC

Deployment in Schools The Schools Edition is a node locked licensed version of Pro/ENGINEER.

Deployment in Schools The Schools Edition is a node locked licensed version of Pro/ENGINEER. Each machine being installed must have a unique license file License files are tied to the physical address of the Ethernet Card – PTC Host. ID – This can be found from • Command prompt and typing ipconfig /all • Front page of PTC. Setup For on-line method, the machine MUST be connected to the internet during the installation process. To enable deployment on a complete lab, the best approach is to use the offline method and generate the licenses for each machine from one system. – Install Pro/E, create a ghost image and deploy it to all systems. – Replace each local license file with the newly generated ones. • /text/licensing 22 © 2006 PTC

Administration Managing Files and Your Work Environment The most widely used file extensions in

Administration Managing Files and Your Work Environment The most widely used file extensions in Pro/ENGINEER are as follows: . prt—part files. asm—assembly. drw—drawing. frm—drawing format A name of any file within Pro/ENGINEER cannot contain any of the following characters: & /. , ; : # % $ ( ). In addition, you cannot use a space in a file name, as in top bracket. prt. Use an underscore (_) instead as in top_bracket. prt. Pro/ENGINEER does not differentiate between uppercase of lowercase characters. For example, when opening a new part, you enter the file name Front_Wheel. prt. Pro/ENGINEER sees and refers to this part as FRONT_WHEEL. PRT, and on disk this part is seen as front_wheel. prt. 27 © 2006 PTC

Administration Erasing Pro/ENGINEER Files Pro/ENGINEER all file in memory after you save and close

Administration Erasing Pro/ENGINEER Files Pro/ENGINEER all file in memory after you save and close it. Erase files from memory when you have finished with them. To remove a file from memory, click File > Erase > Not Displayed and choose the file to erase. Otherwise, when you open a file, Pro/ENGINEER first searches for it in memory and could open an unwanted file, as the example below explains. Suppose that you open wheel. prt from C: /my documents/projects/car and then close it. Next, you change directory to C: /my documents/projects/truck and select a file call wheel. prt from this directory. Pro/ENGINEER looks first in memory, sees a file called wheel. prt, and opens that file. As a result, the wheel. prt of the car would open and not the wheel. prt of the truck. 28 © 2006 PTC

Administration Working with Versioned Pro/ENGINEER Files Every time you save a file in Pro/ENGINEER,

Administration Working with Versioned Pro/ENGINEER Files Every time you save a file in Pro/ENGINEER, a sequential version of the file is created. For example; if you open a newly created part called antenna. prt and save it, antenna. prt. 1 is created, and then antenna. prt. 2 and so on with each successive save. These versioned files can consume disk space. Purge files on a frequent basis on each directory with part files, assembly files, and drawing file. To assist in removing unwanted versions of a file, users can add the Purge utility to the Windows Explorer menu. The purge utility is an automated script that removes all old versioned files from a directory. 29 © 2006 PTC
