Load the Model Into Creo Illustrate
1. Open Creo Illustrate.
2. Click Link in the Import drop-down menu to link the file to an existing CAD model. Linking the model ensures that all updates to the source model are reflected inside Creo Illustrate as well.

4. Select the Update after confirmation only setting on the Manage Link window and click OK.
5. To get the model to appear in the New Figure window, click Default and ensure that the Preview checkbox is selected. Once the model appears, click Create.
