Creo Parametric models can be created using image files as texture mapping when the model has that requirement. Example: Decal/Nameplates/SN Tags. Today the model can be created with the embedded image. A subsequent drawing can also be created and the image visible as long as the model colors drive the drw view. From there a colored pdf can be produced if a 2D document is desired. When creating the Creo View visualizations the image used on the model is not produced. We would like to see the true and complete model in the Creo View application that includes any image in the model. This could support the MBE/MBD efforts of downstream users who typically only see the visualization files.

Classic case of the WYSIWYG rule (What you see is what you get) not being met. I totally think this is a good idea for Creo View. Other deritive file formats such as STEP and 3D PDF should also support this, but I'm pretty sure they don't.
