Lab Exercise 1: Creating Additional Surfaces on

the Bottle
Objectives

After successfully completing this exercise, you will know how to:

 Create parametric surface features using basic surfacing


techniques.

Scenario

You have been assigned to work on the design of a bottle. You use
various techniques in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0 to create basic
parametric surfaces features in the bottle.

Task 1. Open and review the BOTTLE_MAIN_SURFS.PRT.


1. Start Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire if necessary.

2. In the Folder Browser , browse to the following folder:


C:\users\student\ Surface_WF2\module_01.
3. Click on the module_01 folder to view the contents of the folder
in the browser.
4. Right-click on the module_01 folder and select Set Working
Directory.
5. Select the BOTTLE_MAIN-SURFS.PRT from the browser to
preview the model, then click Open in Pro/E .

Notice the model already contains the main body surfaces. These
surfaces were created with two variable section sweeps, a boundary
blend, and a mirror feature.

You will create these main body surfaces later in the course.
