How to add streamlines from Creo Flow Analysis?

After seeing the PTC Demo from LiveWorx of the Cirrus Vision Jet that had the streamlines around it in AR I would like to recreate a similar experience. https://twitter.com/LiveWorx/status/1011976485324795904 

 

How can we get the Streamlines from Creo Flow Analysis into Studio?

Is there a way to export those results to a PVZ or something like that?

If there is any other suggested method to reproduce a similar view that would be hugely appreciated.

In the latest versions of Creo 5.0 (5.0.1.0) and Creo 4.0 (M050) there is the option to Export the streamlines from the results:

This allows you to export an OBJ or a PVZ of the streamlines.  From what the PTC guys told me the rest of it is then done in Studio using some custom shaders, but I don't have the details on them unfortunately.

 

We've done some other work on this a while ago using the Vuforia SDK (now called Vuforia Engine) to bring in CFD results from ANSYS and overlay them on the physical product.  You can see examples here:

I saw this demo at LiveWorx this yeah and was also really interested in it as I was trying to do the same thing with simulation data from Star CCM+ and not getting anywhere.

 

I have not tried this but i was told by the guy at the booth was that Simerics has an option to export the flow at a .obj object. Which is then really easy to import into Vuforia.

Re: How to add streamlines from Creo Flow Analysis?

Great thank you, not sure how I missed that.

Only problem I am having now is the streamlines are losing their colour.

My pvz files dont display in Studio while the OBJ files do. 

Re: How to add streamlines from Creo Flow Analysis?

Currently it is not possible to import or export the color data with .obj file in Creo Parametric.

Thank you, I look forward to being able to when this is possible.
