I've been doing PCB Layout, ACAD 2&3D, CAM, .... for some time now. I want to learn Pro/E. I went to the web and there are several student packages ranging $150 to $330.

Which one do I get???

Thank you hazmatt.

And do I need to worry about versions?

I noticed tutorials for 2000i1, 2000i2, ....

I would reccomend you definitely get 2001 versus 2000i or 2000i2. The newest proe version called wildfire, which is supposed to be released in March, is structured totally different from 2000i. In release 2001 the structure is sorta half way changed to the new style to ease users into this method. In the end modeling will be faster with a lot less menus clicks per operation.



In summary, anything learned on the older stuff will be outdated quite soon and have little or no use to you on the newer software .

How often do they put out drastically new versions?

Are you guys saying the gui's actually change between versions?
