Windchill Visualisation Services now supports the creation of GDD content (for reading into Creo Illustrate) from positioning assemblies.  This enables re-use of the popular positioning assembly methodology for Creo Illustrate.

For more information about Positioning Assemblies, please refer to the below excellent presentations from Bill Ryan that was previously published

Power of positioning assemblies from Bill Ryan@PACCAR

Visualization in Creo View is 23 times faster than Creo Parametric

5.  Reuse existing annotation sets during animation recording

PTC Creo View now allows you to select an existing annotation set and use some of the state attributes such as part visibility, color, transparency, location, etc. during the recording of an animation. Note that you must “Apply to View” as double clicking the annotation set will create a new view and will not apply to the animation.

  1. Hello,
    we are checking that how to see the combination views and annotations through creo view in wind chill.

    can you please suggest the solution for this?

  2. Hi Satish,
    A couple clarifications/questions –
    1. I presume you are referring to the Annotation and Combination Views from Creo Parametric, right?
    2. Have you published these annotations and combination views from Creo Parametric?

    You can then use Creo View Express or Lite or Creo View MCAD to visualize these annotations. Hope this helps else please let me know.

  3. Hi Madhavi,
    in my company we have choosen to publish Creo drawing in PDF format.
    (We have configured the worker for PDF publishing).
    Because of this choice we are unable to markup the drawings.
    Could you confirm that Adobe Acrobat is necessary on the client machine for performing markups on the published pdf drawings ?
    Thank you
