Documenting a design and communicating design intent on an engineering drawing often requires you to insert images into your drawing sheet.
These could be image files representing engineering calculation results, diagrams, rendered model images, photos, or any other information captured in an image file.
2D drawing with image files added.
Now, it’s easy to import those image files directly into a 2D drawing using Creo 4. In fact, if you’ve ever imported a picture to a PowerPoint slide or a Word document, you mostly already know how to do it.
Here are the steps:
That’s it! The imported image file becomes part of the drawing. And note, the system doesn’t require object linking and embedding (OLE).
Import common formats like JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP, as well as PTC image formats or Creo Sketch files.
Super simple, right? You probably don’t need it, but here’s a short video demo:
