Benefits and Description

With Creo Elements/Direct 17.0 you can intuitively and efficiently create and position 3D dimensions of different types. Depending on the selected geometry for a model in the viewport, the system provides an intelligent, context sensitive detection of the appropriate dimension type to create a distance, angular or radius dimension. The new intelligent dimension method is optimized for fast documentation of measurements and to support 3D model modifications.  These dimensions can be stored with the model and used for 3D documentation.
