Implement export of Creo drawing to WMF/EMF format. This way you enable users to put nice pictures into Service Guides (created using Microsoft Word) of their products.
Just try print to CGM-file. This might be a workaround so far.
just a simple question ...
Have you ever used CGM file to create nice Service Guide using Microsoft Word ?
What is your experience ?
Are you sure that picture quality is excelent ?
... OR ... Is your asnwer just suggestion what can I try ?
I have used it before, when I wanted b/w line graphs from a proE-drawing in Word. I made
a cgm.pcf plotter definition file with the following content
button_help CGM Vektor-Graphics for Word
pen_table_file $CREO_CFG_LW\config\plot\ps.pnt (you will need to change that line to your correct pentable file)
plot_destination file default
PLOT_FILE_DIR .\plot (we always have a subfolter .\plot]
what ProE version did you use ?
Information concerning CGM file import
As explained in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/MS10-105 CGM files are vulnerable. MS therefore blocked CGM import in MS Office suite (I reproduced this setting in MS Word 2003/2010).
As explained in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2479871/en-us user can enable CGM import by Registry modification - it is necessary to set AllowListEnabled to 0.
I tested the registry trick in MS Word 2003/2010 successfully.
ok, that might explain something. I used it a while ago with Wildfire3 and an older Office version, where we had to install the CGM-Importfilter separately. Now with the actual Creo2 the CGM-export is still working but the Word import didn't work anymore. Let's see if your link changes the MS-Office bahaviour.
After doing the following registry entries it works now with Office2010 and CGM-files from Creo2.0:
for a XP64bit the following registry file will change the MS-Office bahaviour:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Value set in CGMIMP32.FLT variable (eg. 2003.1100.8249.0) must match with the version of CGMIMP32.FLT file (in Windows 7 64bit + Office 2010 this file is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\GRPHFLT directory).
To get info about file version, you can create text file test_ver.vbs, put the following code into it and launch it. You will get test_ver.txt file.
Option ExplicitDim fso, fc, f, fs Dim strPath, strFile, adresar_s_filtry
'On Error Resume Next
adresar_s_filtry = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\GRPHFLT"
strPath = "test_ver.txt"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set strFile = fso.CreateTextFile(strPath, True)
strFile.WriteLine("FileName,Last Modified,File Version")
Set f = fso.GetFolder(adresar_s_filtry) Set fc = f.FilesFor Each fs In fc If fso.GetExtensionName(fs) = "FLT" then strFile.WriteLine(fs.Name & "," & fs.DateLastModified & "," & fso.GetFileVersion(fs)) End ifNext
