Importing Files into Windchill
There are two ways to import your objects into Windchill:
Import objects into the workspace using the embedded browser–You can use Tools > Import to Workspace to select files from your local disk or another location and import them into your workspace. Selecting a top-level assembly default collects all required dependents for import.
Import into the workspace is not supported for the files that come from multiple authoring applications.
Save an opened file to your workspace – When your Creo Parametric session is connected to a Windchill server, you can open an object in your application from a location other than a workspace. Then you can use Save to Workspace to save the active object in session with its dependents to the workspace. For more information, see Saving Your Work to the Workspace.
