Design Reviews – Solutions (Part II)

In a previous post (here ) Matt Sheridan discussed five common challenges customers face when performing design reviews. In this post he discusses how PTC helps companies overcome these common challenges

The five common design-review challenges:–

  1. Reviewing multi-CAD designs
  2. Working with 2D Drawings
  3. Comparing dataset
  4. Organizing and viewing  data types (Word, Excel, PDF)
  5. Integrating MCAD-ECAD information

Publishing Multi-CAD assemblies with PTC Creo Unite

Well, I’m not discussing about that “Unite” here. This is about the Unite technology from PTC. 

PTC Creo View Adapter for PTC Creo Parametric starting with 3.0 M030 supports the publishing of PTC Creo Unite parts and assemblies.

What is PTC Creo Unite?

PTC Creo® with Unite technology provides users with breakthrough capabilities to improve productivity in multi-CAD environments. By allowing users to consolidate CAD systems and collaborate more effectively across systems, design teams will experience new efficiencies allowing them to improve product quality, desirability, and on-time deliverability. For more information, follow this link.

What are the caveats in publishing PTC Creo Unite based parts and assemblies?

See article CS188975 for information about the current caveats of PTC Creo Unite technology working with PTC Creo View and PTC WindchillPDMLink10.2

interrogation

Interrogation. Have you been through this before?

The word interrogation is a highly emotive topic and might remind you of  “bad” guys, intense questioning,etc. etc. Relax…. I’m not referring to that “type” of interrogation or anything  close to that….  In this post, I wanted to highlight some of the neat interrogation capabilities in PTC Creo View.  Checkout my recent post on creo.ptc.com. In that post I have tried to cover a high level overview of “how” to  dig deeper into your designs using PTC Creo View.  Continue Reading Note, clicking on the  link will take you to creo.ptc.com Continue reading
