Design reviews often take a lot of preparation. Marking up and annotating a file isn’t that difficult, but sharing your work? Do you have a reliable way to pass on the information to reviewers? For those who use PLM, you might pull the data from the PLM database and then save or print the file. But if you use PTC Creo View with PTC Windchill, there’s an easier way says Matt Sheridan,director of PTC PLM marketing, and presenter at the upcoming PTC Live Global event.
When PTC Creo View is integrated with PTC Windchill, you can easily share your markup data via email with other PTC Windchill users. Here’s how:
Find your saved annotation within PTC Windchill.
Right-click and from the pull-down menu, select Save Annotation.
In the Save Annotation window, click Save as Link.
Then click Email filename.
When the recipient clicks the link in the email, PTC Creo View launches with just the content the user needs. Not only does this save time, it ensures anyone who receives your link sees exactly the right information. You can even email animations this way.
Best of all, the data is still hosted within PTC Windchill; so it’s much more secure than sending email files over the network.

Sheridan will present two topics, including one about PTC’s just announced new offering, PTC PLM Cloud. He’ll also talk about how, in a multidisciplinary/multi-CAD environment, an engineering bill of materials is more important than ever.
