Sharing the large amounts of digital product data created during product development is a huge issue for manufacturers. Data created by CAD tools needs to be accessible to a variety of stakeholders. This helps the team better visualize, measure, analyze, approve, manufacture, inspect and service the design.
Now, you could use a native CAD tool (like Creo 3.0), which means that every person who wants to visualize the design needs specialized training. Or, you could use a lightweight visualization tool like Creo View that allows users to quickly load and notate the design.
A lightweight visualization tool is useful for broad collaboration because it doesn’t require users to review a fully detailed CAD model. In this article, we’ll discuss how to create and publish lightweight Creo View files from native files.
