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 asPTC Creo — which means every user will need some amount of training. Or you can use…. Continue reading on the Creo blog here.

“Visualization in Creo View is 23 times faster than Creo Parametric” says Bill Ryan from PACCAR. I had the pleasure of speaking with Bill about Visualization and publishing technologies at the recent PTC Live event in Boston.
Here’s an interesting perspective from Bill about How, What and Where of Visualization technology.Continue reading
Every day, manufacturing engineers face the challenge of ensuring that process plans and work instructions accurately reflect the current engineering design. Paper-based work instructions have been used to disseminate information about various steps of the process. Quite often, these are laminated and hung on the walls in the shop floor. This works well until an Engineering Change Order comes through... Continue reading my article on the Creo blog here.

How many emails have you ever exchanged with your colleagues to debate the cause of an interference issue and who is responsible for fixing it? If they had used PTC Creo View to check for interferences, these issues could have been identified early on in the process, thus helping to reduce the chances of rework – See more on the Creo blog here.
Yes, why would you want to replace 2D drawings? Clearly, 2D Drawings have their own advantages. But there are disadvantages to 2D Drawings. Let’s consider a couple of scenarios. Continue reading on the PTC Creo blog.
Steven LaPha from NASA KSC- ESC and Frank Gaydos from NASA KSC-IMCS gave a brilliant presentation on “How”, “What” and “Where” of Recipe files and the publishing of CAD documents at the recent PTC Live event 2014 in Boston. For those that missed their presentations, please see the slides. Continue Reading...
"I see Visualization driving everything..." says Lance Lie from Raytheon who I had the opportunity to meet with at the recent PTC Live event in Boston. Here's an interesting perspective from Lance about Visualization technology, benefits of using the technology as well the future of Visualization. Continue Reading....
The word interrogation is a highly emotive topic and might remind you of "bad" guys, intense questioning,etc. etc. Relax.... I'm not referring to that "type" of interrogation or anything close to that.... In this post, I wanted to highlight some of the neat interrogation capabilities in PTC Creo View. Checkout my recent post on creo.ptc.com. In that post I have tried to cover a high level overview of "how" to dig deeper into your designs using PTC Creo View. Continue ReadingFor other tips and tricks for PTC Creo View and WVS, check out my blog here.
Do not to attempt to treat your ECAD users like MCAD users. They have much different needs and views of PLM in general says Mark Caradonna, Product Manager for PTC Creo View ECAD solutions who I had to opportunity to chat with and capture his observations of the PTC Live 2014 event held recently in Boston. PTC Live is PTC’s event for product development professionals using PTC solutions.
Mark discusses trends in ECAD space and highlights of the recent PTC Creo View release.Continue Reading
I found this website when I was “googling” for “instances”. I have not tried to find my look-alikes but…
Well, the reason I bring up this topic about look-alikes is because it has a lot to do with the case at hand, i.e. “instances” in PTC Creo View. This blog post discusses about identifying instances in PTC Creo View.Continue reading →
Yes, apparently. I recently found this interesting article about how Sound is one of the key elements of our travel experiences besides “Visualization”. Read on about visiting sonic wonders of the world and the 8 great places to hear…..
OK… so, what has Sound and Sight got to do with your blog about Visualization of Mechanical assemblies? Well, something for sure…. Here’s my recent post about the interesting things that you can “see” and “do” with the Visualization technology and PTC Creo View in particular. Continue Reading.….
