Time: 1.5 hour

Description: After attending a basic course and spending many hours on Pro/E, some users still don't make an effective use of layers.  The ineffective use of layers is due, in part, to the constantly improving but clumsy interface.  In this session, the concept of layers will be re-introduced.  After receiving specific uses for layers, the advantages will clearly overpower the clumsy interface.

Prerequisite: Basic Design plus 40 hours.
