The development of printed circuit boards has been a part of the SOLIDWORKS design process on the mechanical side for quite some time now. However, we didn’t step into the actual development process of printed circuit board(PCB) schematics and layouts until now. In this process, we begin to bridge the gap between ECAD and MCAD design. Instead of working in multiple design […]

SOLIDWORKS PCB   In SOLIDWORKS 2017 there are several new features and products entering into the SOLIDWORKS product environment. With electro-mechanical design, we often see a disconnect between electrical and mechanical designers. To bridge this gap, we have added innovative tools to unify design under the SOLIDWOKS umbrella. With the release of SOLIDWORKS 2016 SP3.0, we are proud to introduce a new product for the design of printed circuit boards called SOLIDWORKS PCB.     SOLIDWORKS PCB was added into […]
