Mechanical Oriented Workflow

SOLIDWORKS PCB includes enhancements to ECAD-MCAD collaboration that improve mechanical-oriented workflow between mechanical designers and electrical engineers.

Features included in this release are:
  • Support of component placement and height barriers from MCAD to ECAD. Mechanical engineers can define and collaborate through PCB Connector any required PCB placement constraints for the surface of the board and the height in the SOLIDWORKS software.

  • Support of component locking collaboration between ECAD and MCAD. Mechanical engineers can collaborate through PCB Connector the "fixing" of ECAD components in SOLIDWORKS to protect placement of critical components in the PCB design.
