Is there any way to quickly save a .prt model to use in a power point presentation?
Creo View files can be embedded into PowerPoint presentations. Convert the PRT model into PVZ format to embed.
I'm intrigued by this. I just tried saving my Creo2 assy as a *.PVZ file and dragging it into PPT (2010). It simply placed an icon in the PPT file. Double clicking it brings up Creo View, but no model. What am I doing wrong?
Do you just want to show the model or do you want to be able to spin the 3D model in a PowerPoint presentation?
If you want to embed the model and spin it in your presentation, then you would have to download the Creo View toolkit from PTC.
Below is a link to a guide on how to use Creo View control objects in PowerPoint presentations. I don't think a toolkit is required.
I hope this helps.
Is there a way to display the creo view PVS/PVZ files that were published in Windchill in such PowerPoint documents?
That is, without first exporting the representation to a local disk...
I guess I'm not sure how to actually find the "sourceUrl" to such published data...
I know how to navigate the windchill information pages related to representations of an object and find the url that can be typed into a web browser and which will start Creo View embedded within the web browser.
However, this url does not work within the pview control within the powerpoint presentation...
