Step AP–242 Support for Visualization Representation
You can import and export STEP AP242 with either 3D precise (B-rep) or tessellated geometry for parts and assemblies containing only graphical product manufacturing information (PMI).
Release: Creo Parametric 4.0
Benefits and Description
You can easily import and export STEP AP242 with either 3D precise (B-rep) or tessellated geometry for parts and assemblies. This includes the import and export of graphical Product Manufacturing Information (PMI). You can define the PMI as polyline or as tessellated PMI. This visualization representation will not include any core semantic PMI, only graphical.
Defined cross sections are included in the import and export of cross sections.
This supports the standards for long-term archiving (LTA) of digital data, ensuring Model-Based Definition (MBD) can be consumed downstream.
