Board Outline and Cutout Changes (2024 SP2)

CircuitWorks can generate MCAD change files based on board outline and cutout changes. You can then send these changes as IDX 3 files to Cadence® Allegro®.

ECAD either accepts or rejects each of these changes. Based on the ECAD IDX 3 response file, rejected changes reappear in CircuitWorks. Click Build Model to apply those changes to the SOLIDWORKS assembly.

When you make board outline or cutout changes, any other changes are omitted from the same change file (such as components, holes, or keep in/keep out areas). You need to send those as additional changes later.
