With Creo Illustrate you can create rich 3D technical illustrations, 2D drawings, and interactive animated sequences that accurately reflect current product configurations and support formats from hard copy to Augmented Reality. The software:
CAD Data Reuse: Create 3D technical illustrations and animations derived from engineering CAD data.
Associative CAD: Keep the illustrations updated as product design changes.
Sequencing: Illustrate repair, assembly, and other procedures through static and dynamic illustrations.
Content Reuse: Create an illustration once, and use it across multiple publications.
Comprehension: Annotations allows for clearer communication through the use of call-outs, symbols, and other references to augment your 3D content.
Parts Lists: Generate full parts lists for all of your products, and use those lists to define a product structure.
Product Structure: Organize part-related content based on how those components fit within the product’s bill of materials.
Reduce Translation Costs: By replacing text with illustrated step-by-step procedures, 3D animations, illustrated parts lists and other graphical representations.
Augmented Reality Foundation: Seamless reuse of 3D illustrations and animations for AR.
We weren’t looking to produce faster just for the sake of saving time or money, we wanted to reinvest our authors’ time into other projects, like incorporating more interactive 3D content into our manuals.– Brian York, Principle Systems Specialist, The Toro Company
