The biggest issue facing manufacturers is how to efficiently share large volume of digital product content created throughout the product development process. CAD tools are typically used to create the design data but this data needs to be accessed by numerous stakeholders in the downstream organizations to visualize, measure, analyze, approve, manufacture, inspect and service the design.
There are a couple ways your designs can be visualized by users across the enterprise, and importantly, outside of engineering. You can either use the native CAD tool – such as Creo — which means every user will need some amount of training. Or you can use a light-weight visualization tool such as Creo View to quickly load and interrogate the design.
