Add support for importation of dxf with shaded views

Add support for importation of dxf with shaded views

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
My company is a Manufacturing Company, I am a "Project Optimization Engineer PLM" but for you I am a Windchill Administrator and Customizer. My stakeholders are the Windchill and CAD users, many departments of the company.


2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?
7.0.6.0

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
I've just created this idea in the past (2015) but recently it was archived:
Add support for importation of dxf with shaded views 

This was the content of the old Idea:

 

After case 12516007 ptc told me that it is not supported.

Creo supports shaded view, it supports export of shaded view in dxf, hpgl, pdf.

But it doesn't support import of shaded view from dxf.

In my opinion this is a big lack and ptc has to fill the gap soon.

4. What is the use case for your organization?
The use case is a custom converter that opens dxf arriving from other cad and export in pdf. If dxf has shaded view they are lost in the conversion.

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
To not have wrong drawings arriving to the suppliers, many man hours lost in case of errors.
