Benefits and Description

Performance improvements:

Creo View 2.0, when working with Windchill, now provides a local cache for .ol (geometry) files, providing significant improvements in load time for subsequent re-use of the files. This applies to both the Visualization Tab and Creo View. This caching should also provide benefits in reduced Windchill and network loading.

Usability improvements:

Security improvements:

The Windchill/Creo View CAD and Interference workers support forms-based authentication provided elsewhere in Windchill 10.1.
