About Importing the Views of Creo Elements/Direct Associative Drawings
When you import Creo Elements/Direct*.mi, *.bi, and *.bdl drawings with the Drawing associative with model option selected under Views in the Import MI dialog box, the following types of views in the drawings are transferred as associative views to Creo Parametric:
General views
Detail views
Cross-section views (full and surface section)
Partial views
Cutaway views
Views containing configurations
Views containing secured parts
However, the following types of views are only imported as 2D views with model geometry as draft entities:
Broken views
Dependent free-oriented views
Rotated detail views
Cross-section view unfold
Views with outlines
A detail view is a specific area of an existing parent view and is defined by a border. Partial views are similar to detail views, except that the original full view is replaced by the partial view. Cutaway views are imported as the associative local cross-section views.
The orientation of the views after the import of the Creo Elements/Direct*.mi, *.bi, and *.bdl drawings is the same as the orientation of the views before the import of the Creo Elements/Direct drawing files. View sets that include view-specific details such as the standard and dependent views, references between the drawings and the 3D models, drawing structure information such as sheets, layout, scaling, construction geometry, symbol parts, hatch types, and so on that constitute the 3D model data and are relevant for the creation of drawings are imported.
