Benefits and Description

During PCB import, the PCB Interface will now also search for library components in Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager if included in the search order of the active libraries. A combined mode supports library migration, allowing to load component models from file based libraries and store them in Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager libraries. In Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager libraries components are stored as objects of the LIBRARY_3D class. Block models are stored in the Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager library "Extruded".
