ECAD-MCAD Collaboration between SWPCB and Altium Designer
SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector enables collaboration between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS PCB. It is an Altium extension tool that enables seamless sharing of 3D data without requiring import and export of STEP, DWG, or IDF file formats. This collaboration not only improves the ability to move data between the MCAD and ECAD worlds, but it also removes much of the manual administrative tasks that the 1st generation of collaboration demands. It goes beyond moving STEP files and in fact, it is not even moving STEP files!
Here are the key benefits:
Efficient and real-time collaboration between ECAD and MCAD teams
No need to import and export STEP, DWG, or IDF files between ECAD and MCAD teams
Respin due to miscommunication between ECAD and MCAD teams is avoided
