Historically, technical illustrations have required a CAD user to prepare cutaways and exploded views for an illustrator, meaning extra work and increasing the likelihood that the information used is out of date before it reaches the intended user. PTC Creo Illustrate offers a dedicated environment with the capabilities required to create rich, 3D technical illustrations that are used to communicate complex products and procedures clearly and graphically.
PTC Creo Illustrate allows you to interpret your CAD data to deliver fast, up-to-date 3D technical and service information for the support of products throughout their lifecycle. In addition, this powerful software can restructure CAD engineering bills of material to create information structure for parts and service procedures or other illustration purposes.
Features & Benefits
- Clearly convey complex information – create 3D animations to visually describe complex service procedures for easy consumption.
- Reduce translation costs – replace text with illustrated step-by-step procedures, 3D animations, illustrated parts lists, and other graphical representations of text.
- Increase illustrator productivity – automate illustration change management throughout the service information lifecycle by maintaining an associative link to original CAD files.
- Automate parts list creation – generate parts lists and call outs directly from CAD metadata to produce dynamic parts lists.
