Isair I won't said that AutoCad is entirely 2d software. Because i now how towork with ac. and can make 3d on it aswell. Is just i little more complicated than any other 3d software.

Yes thats true, that AC is not entirely 2d software, but from my experience, ppl who use AC 90% work only in 2D, and then when they try 3D software is difficulty for them to understand 3D world.
That was what I was thinking when I say that AC is 2D software.

Is that important - to determine is it AC 2d or 3d. Man wants badly

There is not important if AC is 2D or 3D, what is important is the way of thinking when you are using AC, and different way of thinking when you are using ProE. So then maybe I express myself wrong when I said that AC is 2D, what I acutely meant is that is different way of thinking when you using AC, and when using ProE

You have a advantage by having used acad, you can relate to , well I did this in acad and now I need to do this... association with previous things you know is a real benefit when picking up something new.


There is a lot of good stuff at the ptc site, and there is alway google. You know what you need more than anyone else. depends if you are looking to buy something or looking for free. i tend to get free first then move on to buying something

There are bound to be some dead links.. but it's a good starter


The biggest thing about going from Acad to Pro, is when you are starting out it's easy to get frustrated .. you'll be thinking that in acad I could do that so much easier, I'd been done by now. Some things most certainly so, but as you get used to the ProE way of doing things.. you will not want to go back :)

One place no one has mentioned yet is the simplest of all. The HELP menu inside pro-e can give you about all the answers you need to all that pro-e can do. I would start there first and then go to websites if there is still confusion.
