SOLIDWORKS PCB 2018 IPC Footprint Wizard

Article by Delvin Masilamani updated January 23, 2018


The SOLIDWORKS PCB IPC Footprint Wizard is probably one of the most anticipated features for SOLIDWORKS PCB 2018; we expect this to reduce creation time, increase accuracy and create the necessary step files to synchronize with SOLIDWORKS. Along with creating high pin out packages it follows IPC-73551 standard.

Where to find these features:

Launch the PCB library > Tools > IPC Footprint Wizard

IPC Foot Print Wizard tools

The wizard will only launch with the PCB sheet open in SOLIDWORKS PCB and the tools ribbon has two options for IPC Footprint wizard.


IPC-73551 standards for creating Footprints

The IPC complaint footprints can also be created in batches using this tool and derives all the creation information from CSF or spreadsheets.
