bundle files
A file type saved from the Creo Elements/Direct Annotation module that contains both 3D data and 2D drawings
contents file
The 3D data file that contains information about the contents of an object.
A configuration is an alternate view of an assembly with parts moved into new positions. It may also contain a camera perspective and zoom level, and drawlist information.
Information attached to an assembly that contains alternate position information for the parts below the assembly. Formations were replaced by configurations in version 2006 and are obsolete.
geometric resolution
The level of detail you can create in your model. For example, if you set your resolution to 1.0E-6, you can create edges with measurements as small as 1.0E-6.
instance file
The 3D data file that contains information about the instance of an object.
lightweight model
A lightweight model is a three dimensional graphical representation of a model that looks like any other model in the viewport. However, lightweight models use less memory because they do not include detailed information or metadata. You can only load a lightweight model from Creo Elements/Direct Model Manager.
The basic component in the assembly structure. It is described by the following information:
1. Part name
2. Location
3. Geometry
pseudo folder
A folder displayed only in the Structure Browser which groups related items to help organize them visually. Psuedo folders are not created in the file system when you save your parts and assemblies.
shared parts
A copy of a part that retains an association with the original part. You cannot change a shared part; the part will change when you modify the original. Shared parts are also called instances.
taper feature
Taper information saved with the contents of a part that is updated as the part changes. You can modify a taper by selecting the taper feature in the Structure Browser, and all the information stored in the feature is displayed in the dialog.
The feature is updated whenever you change the part where the taper feature is attached. If you create the feature with the standard Taper command, and the taper becomes invalid for a face, the face is removed from the feature. If all faces in a taper feature are invalid, the feature is removed from the Structure Browser and the part's contents information. If you create the feature with the Advanced Taper command, and the taper becomes invalid, the feature will also become invalid.
task panel
The primary task menu in Creo Elements/Direct Modeling, which is located on the right side of the screen. Press F9 to open and close the task panel.
