Projects move more efficiently when everyone can use the same language and tools for design reviews. The trouble is that not everybody has PTC Creo Parametric on his or her computer, leaving any non-engineering team members scribbling on printouts and PowerPoint slides or crowded around the nearest CAD jockey. For the rest of the team—managers, marketers, clients, and others who need better access and insight than you can get from a screen shot—try PTC Creo View.
Design Reviews with PTC Creo View
Using PTC Creo View, team members can see a design in interactive 3D, providing feedback and limiting errors at every step of the review process. For example, a project manager marks up a drawing and returns it to the design team for review. PTC Windchill saves the drawing, along with changes and notes, tracking revisions along the way. Simply put, PTC Creo View with PTC Windchill is your team’s virtual huddle.
Here are a few things you should know about the viewer:
