Re: How do I open .3cdi files while in Creo Illustrate?
The PVZ file is linkable because it is the CAD source information you will use to create the .c3di. The c3di file is the native file format for Illustrate. If you want to open a c3di, you use the File>Open instead of Import>Link. Since Illustrate is not a design tool that creates geometry, you need to start with geometry (PVZ). Linking the c3di to the PVZ makes sure the geometry stays up to date with the CAD source. Does that help?
