Any traveler knows that a bad map is worse than none at all. Think of your product. Would you want a customer to miss a product benefit due to information that's poorly presented? Or a member of the service team to be baffled by puzzling documentation that's also out of date?

With Creo Illustrate, you can be sure these key users will have current information presented in a way that's easy to understand. You'll have more confidence that your product will be experienced, serviced, and maintained as you intended.

Creo Illustrate combines 3D illustration capabilities with associative CAD data to deliver configuration-specific graphical information — information that reflects the current product design — for operating, servicing and maintaining products. It enables you to create 3D technical illustrations that make complex products and procedures understandable to customers and service staff.

The software also interprets heterogeneous CAD formats and is fully integrated with Windchill, Creo and Servigistics Arbortext products — to deliver fast, up-to-date 3D information for the support of products throughout their lifecycle. Creo Illustrate can also restructure CAD engineering bills-of-materials (eBOMs) to create information structures for parts and service procedures or other illustration purposes.

Creo Illustrate Features and Benefits:

  1. Clearly convey complex information: Create 3D animations to visually describe complex service procedures for easy consumption
  2. Reduce translation costs: Replace text with illustrated step-by-step procedures, 3D animations, illustrated parts lists and other graphical representations of text
  3. Increase illustrator productivity: Automate illustration change management throughout the service information lifecycle by maintaining an associative link to original CAD files
  4. Automate parts lists creation: Generate parts lists and call-outs directly from CAD metadata to produce dynamic parts lists
