Features and 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

The world wants solutions that are fundamentally easier to use. PTC has the technology assets and the intellectual property to Creo, which solves many of these problems.
