Solved! Go to Solution.
(this is Basic creations of pictures - jpg/tiff Screen Snapshot)
If you need create pictures from model or asm set ProE Background: (white/black or custom color) View > Display Settings > System Colors... >> Scheme > Black on White.
Set orientation for model or asm and create Screen Snapshot: File > Save a Copy... > Select type - /JPEG (*.jpg) or TIFF (Snapshot) (*.tif)/ and set Configuration (Size, DPI etc.)
Note: if you want create nice rendered pictures >> use Render Control mode: View >> Model Setup > Render Control...
Here is quick video tutorial - How to Create jpeg from drawing in Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 3.0
Configuration option for pictures quality is raster_plot_dpi (100, 200, 300 or 400) - try your custom quality for your pictures.
I am using 100 for it, which is minimum, I guess. Even then the size goes upto 14 mb.
Here is the scenario : I am using a drawing for the jpeg file creation. Jpeg file size goes upto 14 mb with 45 views in the drawing. Without any view the jpeg file size is just 4 mb. My requirement is that I want to keep the size of the jpeg constant and minimum, irrespective of the number of views. I dont care about the quality . I asked you about the quality because I wanted to reduce it to reduce the size of the jpeg file created.
Thanks in advance ..
I do not think that is possible let the original file size (jpg file) if you add new Views in your drawing - more entity=bigger size
