Pushing Tasks to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform (2024 FD01)

To push tasks to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform:

  1. From CircuitWorks, click the CircuitWorks application menu , then click Options .
  2. On the Prostep EDMD tab:
    • Select Use Prostep EDMD.
    • In Read and write Prostep version, select v 3.0.
    • In Shared folder, specify where to share Prostep EDMD files between CircuitWorks and the ECAD application. Ensure that you have write permission for this folder.
    • Select Use GMT style date in IDX communication.
    • (Optional) Select Reverse rotation direction of components on the underside of the board. When cleared, the component does not rotate - it goes on the underside of the board instead of on top, as a mirror image of the component.
  3. On the SOLIDWORKS Import tab, under Conductive layer modeling, select Complete (slower).
    SOLIDWORKS creates all the layers so you can see each layer of the board.
  4. Click OK, then restart SOLIDWORKS.
  5. From CircuitWorks, click Push (EDMD toolbar).
  6. In the EDMDPushPull dialog box, under Ready to push change:
    1. For Collaborator, enter a name.
      You can enter the first, last, or both names.
    2. Click Check Name and search for a name to add.
    3. (Optional) Enter Comments.
    4. Click OK.
    The baseline data is pushed to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in Prostep EDMD IDX 3 format through the 3DEXPERIENCE Collaborative Tasks. The task is assigned to the ECAD engineer. If you push a change or response file, the software prepopulates the Collaborator or you can change the name.
