Inside ProSurface ??? humm...
This book is well written but not meant for beginning users of ProE. The creation of surfaces requires the designer to create datum features which more advanced surfaces can be created with. The book dose a poor job discussing the creation of datum features. But if you are a intermediate level user of ProE it will not matter. The book is great for getting some valuable concepts from... However, you will not be able to do surfacing even if you master the concepts in the book because there are no menu picks in the book. The material is presented in a clear manner but the menu picks for some of the more advanced topics are 3-4 layers deep.. "so good luck finding them"
FYI: You will still need the advice of an experienced Surfacing Designer. Just to find the menu picks....
There are few surfacing books on the market so I suggest you get what you can.. BUY THE BOOK...

WORTHLESS - except as kindling
If you expect to learn surfacing techniques in Pro-E
with help from this book - good luck! The examples are weak
at best and lack any step by step instruction. Save your money.

This is the best in depth treatment of surfacing in non-PTC literature. It is not a tutorial. It is very dense. Read it slowly and work examples as if they were tutorials. I think it's better time spent for the advanced user than in the ProE surfacing class.
