Bridge the Gap Between Electrical and Mechanical Design with SOLIDWORKS PCB

Article by Erin Elliott updated November 10, 2016


A major challenge for electrical, electronics, and mechanical design teams has been the inability to transfer data efficiently between electrical and mechanical tools. SOLIDWORKS® 2017 has bridged that gap with solutions that brings Electromechanical Design together into a single, cohesive environment. The new capabilities take advantage of a unified environment for schematic and layout tools that combines the electronics design expertise of Altium® with the ease of use of SOLIDWORKS.

See how the combination of SOLIDWORKS and Altium allows you to seamlessly synchronize electromechanical design with our on-demand webinar below:

With SOLIDWORKS PCB 2017, you can:

  • Select the best routing options based on design constraints
  • Customize electronic design rule checks
  • Locate and select new components with real-time supplier data
