Benefits and Description

With Creo Elements/Direct 17.0 all model modifications supported by the 3D CoPilot provide you additional feedback and control in form of dimensions.  When modifying a model, typically linear or angular values are always incremental to the initial position of the moving element. The new capability offers you the possibility to define the relative distance between another “from” reference or “to” reference, just by dragging the reference markers. Automatically the on-the-fly dimension is shown as feedback and data entry field for intuitive modifications.
