New level of MCAD-ECAD integration
12 November 2008, Electronics Technology

Altium developed an advanced solution for integrating mechanical (MCAD) and electrical (ECAD) design environments.

Developed as part of Altium Designer, the new solution enables realtime 3D PCB visualisation technology, making it possible to link to external STEP models from within Altium Designer to bring, for example, the model of the casing into the PCB design environment.

It allows designers to create the board shape directly from the case model, do full mechanical fit and clearance checking, and update their board design or component choice and placement to ensure a perfect fit and conformance to physical design constraints. If the mechanical designer changes the case design, this is updated within Altium Designer. The complete board design can also be output as a STEP model for use by the mechanical designer.
