Converting ECAD Files to ProStep EDMD

You can convert any type of supported ECAD file to a ProStep EDMD Baseline file.

Before sending ProStep EDMD file information, you must enable ProStep EDMD file syncing.

  1. Open the ECAD file in the CircuitWorks application.
  2. On the EDMD tab, click Sync with ECAD sw_sync_tool.gif.
    The Sync with ECAD dialog box displays a summary of the messages to be sent with the ProStep EDMD data.
  3. In the dialog box, click <Click to edit note> to add an optional note, and click OK.
    New ProStep EDMD data is saved to the shared folder as a ProStep EDMD Baseline file.
    Changed ProStep EDMD data is saved as a ProStep EDMD Changes file.
    If you sync by email, in addition to placing the ProStep EDMD file in the shared folder, the CircuitWorks software attaches new ProStep EDMD file to an outgoing email.
