ECAD and MCAD No Longer Need to Exist in Isolation [VIDEO]

Article by Rod Mackay updated November 18, 2015



SOLIDWORKS PCB (formerly PCBWorks) takes the guesswork out of your Electrical CAD (ECAD) and Mechanical CAD (MCAD) collaboration process by integrating directly with SOLIDWORKS® and your existing mechanical workflow. What does this mean for you?

  • More control over the PCB design process. With linked design data, you can change component placement, board shape, and mounting holes for a PCB directly in SOLIDWORKS, and instantly sync those changes to SOLIDWORKS PCB.
  • Improved collaboration with your electrical designer. Changes to your design can easily be pushed to SOLIDWORKS PCB with a managed Engineering Change Order (ECO) process, keeping your electrical designer on the same page during your entire product design.
  • More simulation options. You can now open PCB designs directly in SOLIDWORKS with access to copper information, providing you with enhanced simulation options.

SOLIDWORKS PCB is designed and built by the PCB design experts at Altium, and includes a powerful PCB design engine that easily handles today’s design demands for your ECAD designer.
