You’ve got the most powerful and productive PCB design tool in Altium Designer, and now you need an equally powerful set of collaboration features. When STEP models and file translations just aren’t cutting it anymore, you need a platform that creates a rich, intelligent data link between Altium Designer and your mechanical designer’s environment.
Take the stress out of your collaboration process, and get your designs done both on time and on budget with the SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector extension. Design collaboration becomes a seamless process with a managed change environment between ECAD and MCAD domains, while integrated data keeps those design-critical components linked together as one.
SEAMLESS DESIGN COLABORATION
MANAGED ECAD/MCAD CHANGE PROCESS
When the electronic and mechanical design domains are working together, it’s easy to get products to market on-time and on-budget. The SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector extension makes collaboration an easy and streamlined process with linked design data between Altium Designer and your mechanical designer’s environment in SOLIDWORKS®.
Shape-based conflict reduction technology
Get the most precise data to understand your mechanical designer’s original design intent by linking to Parasolid models for enclosures and component models. Native mechanical models takes the guesswork out of your 3D clearance checking process, ensuring that your board fits right the first time.
