When I designate an object (more specifically a feature or quilt) in Creo, how do I see it in Windchill, what will its relationship be to the CAD document, is anyone using this functionality? I am looking for a way to show that a part has published geometry from within Windchill.
I don't believe Creo Parametric passes any additional detail regarding "Designated Area" feature to Windchill and as such, Windchill only works with the model from a CAD Document level.
As to identifying if a part has published geometry from within Windchill, if the CAD Worker has published the model, you'll see a visualization thumbnail when viewing the object (folder list, search result, information page) and a representation/annotation in the Content tab of the information page.
Hi Craig, Im interested in the functionality of Designate (Model Intent > Designate) rather than Designated area.
As below, in addition to parameters, I can designate also designate Features, Surfaces, Edges, Quilts, Annotation elements and Curves. The tooltip suggests that there is a way to see these designations in PDM.
There is some documentation, but its not clear how these designations can be shown in PDMLink
