    Powerful ECAD-MCAD Collaboration

    Take collaboration on electrical and mechanical product design to the next level

    The SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector was developed as an extension of Altium Designer for SOLIDWORKS users. This tool takes the guesswork out of electrical and mechanical design synchronization, programmatically linking the two design environments.

    Designers in both the electronics and mechanical design departments can stay on the same page throughout the design process by sharing data through a seamless interface. Ensure consistency and accuracy during collaboration, helping to meet critical project deadlines and reduce costs and delays associated with design rework.

    Capabilities of SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector

    Design Collaboration

    Native ECAD-MCAD integration and collaboration between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD eliminates the need for STEP, DXF and IDF file exchanges.

    Managed ECAD-MCAD ECO Process

    Keep your designs in sync. A managed ECO process to and from Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD takes care of design changes, including board shape, component placement, mounting holes and cutouts.

    SOLIDWORKS File Support

    Provide the most precise and pure version of component models and enclosures, ensuring that your 3D clearance check process provides a clear picture of board fit.

    Design Commenting and Revision Management

    Understand exactly what changes were made to your board design and when. Detailed revision comments allow you to see a clear change history with the ability to accept or reject the changes.
