TUTORIAL: Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire Assembly Restructure Tool

Version: ProE Wildfire, Wildfire 2.0, Wildfire 3.0, Wildfire 4.0

The assembly restructure tool allows you to reorder your assembly structure between main assembly and sub assemblies in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire. Below are the operations than you can perform using the assembly restructuring tool.

1. Move a component from main assembly to sub-assembly.
2. Move a component from sub-assembly to main assembly.
3. Move a component from sub-assembly to another sub-assembly.
4. Move a sub-assembly into different level of sub-assembly.

TUTORIAL: Spring - Make Flexible in Pro/ENGINEER Assembly

Version: Pro/E Wildfire, Wildfire2.0 and Wildfire3.0

Elastic items always fit into the assigned space in an assembly. It may change its length, width, major & minor diameter or/and so on. Common elastic items in engineering are spring (compression, tension, torsion), rubber and foam.

In any MCAD, we used to draw a few of the elastic model with different dimensions. For example, spring can fit into an assembly with varies of length. So spring model like spring_10mm, spring_12mm, spring_15mm are created and inserted into assembly. There is nothing wrong except the Bill of Materials (BOM) or part list. Instead of displaying Spring in 3 units, the BOM shows spring_10mm, spring_12mm, spring_15mm in 1 unit each. This has created an inaccurate BOM.

In Pro/ENGINEER, we use the flexible component to overcome this problem. Flexible component will allow us to make its dimension varies when it is fit into assembly. In this tutorial, we are using a compression spring as the sample.
