PCBWorks has teamed up with SOLIDWORKS to provide an extensive electro-mechanical collaboration design package. The best way to get familiar with this new and exciting software is to try it out yourself with a PCBWorks Free Trial.
PCBWorks has released a great introductory tutorial which anyone can follow as a step-by-step guide to test out the software and take a sneak peek into the vast potential of this great product.
The tutorial goes through the full electro-mechanical design process for a simple astable multivibrator, and illustrates the power and capabilities of collaboration between PCBWorks and SOLIDWORKS. You start off by generating the electrical schematic using the schematic editor.
Once you’ve generated the schematic with the help of the component library you can move forward to the circuit board design within the PCB editor.
When you are happy with the PCB design you can move on to the mechanical output of the board and push this information to SOLIDWORKS for the mechanical design phase of the project.
The mechanical design team can generate the mechanical envelope or housing and make and mechanical board changes as needed. They can then push this information back to the electrical design team with the click of a button for approval or revisions.
