Surface Modeling

I’ve been using Pro/Engineer in my Drafting classes for about 7 years now.  The “Educational” version of Pro/Engineer Wildfire 5 is somewhat stripped down, and while Carnegie Mellon University had a sweet set of tutorials which I have adapted and updated for ~our~ version of Wildfire, it cannot do Surface Modeling.

With a recent computer update at our school, we had the opportunity to purchase the AutoDesk Design Suite (AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, etc.), which has taken some learning but is very impressive.

I finished re-writing the CMU tutorials for Inventor 2013 and may upload them here shortly.  IN the mean-time, I was finally able to do some Surface Modeling, by creating a tutorial off of this video here.  Cool!
