Wildfire 4.0 Training

Wildfire 4.0 Training

Wildfire 4.0 Training

I'm looking for recommendations on training resources for Wildfire 4.0 (classes, books, online tutorials etc...) I'm primarily a SolidWorks user but I will be working with a client who uses exclusively Wildfire 4.0. All training classes I have found thus far are for Creo. Is there enough similarity between the two releases to make a Creo class worth taking?

Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.


RE: Wildfire 4.0 Training

Creo is a new interface and does not look like WF4.
WF4 was released in January 2008 and support stopped in September 2012.

Try contacting a VAR as they may have someone who can do WF4 training.
Search YouTube for WF training tutorial videos.
Search the internet for books.

Here is on I found: http://www.cadquest.com/books/wf4_titles.htm

"Wildfires are dangerous, hard to control, and economically catastrophic."

Thanks for the input Ben.

Based on the press I've read, Creo and WF4 look entirely different. I just wanted to confirm that they were different enough to make any sort of training crossover ineffective.

I intend to speak with my VAR, I just wanted to understand the differences before they tried to sell me a Creo class that would do me no good.

RE: Wildfire 4.0 Training

For books just go to Amazon and type in "pro engineer wildfire 4.0". There are plenty to choose from. I have not used the WF4 book by Roger Toogood but earlier books by him were pretty good.

There are tons of tutorials, this site is among the best:


You can find good content on PTC's site:


There is always YouTube if it's not blocked at work.

RE: Wildfire 4.0 Training

Thanks Dgallup! Exactly the type of tips I've been hoping for.

RE: Wildfire 4.0 Training

they look different, but they are still the same under the hood.
