Currently the “ECAD-Content” type (Derived data) object does not have a thumbnail associated to it unlike the ‘ECAD-Schematic’/’ECAD-Board’ where the viewables and thumbnail get generated as part of ECAD Check-in.
Our requirement is to have the thumbnails generated in the ‘ECAD-Content’ type object so that when it is passed on to the supplier he can see the viewable rather than pdf.
Since there is a need for collaboration with external vendors/suppliers via ProjectLink we would like to have the "visualization" file generated which a supplier can view using "Creo View".
Also with Windchill 11, WebGL component being made available wherein a user can directly view the visualization files via web browser. This would help to share only ECAD derived object to supplier which contains other supporting deliverables as attachments. Also we can prevent sharing the native files to suppliers which helps to be compliant as part of IP.
