Windchill structure visualization tool (hide)

Windchill structure visualization tool (hide)

The structure visualizzation doesn't permit to see the product in the same way of Creo View,

the components that are in hide in the layer tree are anyway shown in the structure visualizzation, could be good to have

a preference that permit to reproduce the same layer tree status also in this environment.


Kind regards,



I have a column added to the structure tree for the Creo feature number, (Windchill team decided to call it component number  ).  I sort by this column to make the model tree order the same as what you see in Creo Parametric and Creo View.  If an item is suppressed in Creo, then the item floats to the top with a value of "-1" for component number.  I don't know if this works for your scenario?  For the life of me, I haven't figured out why this sort order isn't OOTB default for the structure tab in WC.



Thanks very interesting! Anyway my concern is about to hide items on Creo layer tree, because if I checked in a model with some components in hide the rappresentation (pvz) shown the same as per the 3D model, but unfortunately the "structure visualization" keep all components in "show" this could be sensed but I'd like to have the possibility of the choice.

I hope to being clear...
