SOLIDWORKS PCB Design
SOLIDWORKS PCB is focused on bringing the best of both worlds together. Do what you do best in SOLIDWORKS CAD and let SOLIDWORKS PCB, which was engineered specifically for SOLIDWORKS collaboration, handle all of your PCB design needs.
We’ve combined the best technology in PCB design with an easy-to-use interface and linked it with SOLIDWORKS CAD to give you an efficient design experience that gets your PCBs done quickly and easily — just what you need when PCBs are only a part of your product design workflow.
With SOLIDWORKS PCB, you get the best of both worlds - powerful PCB design technology and direct integration with SOLIDWORKS CAD. Keeping your electrical and mechanical designs in sync has never been easier with a managed ECO change process and distinct workflows that keep you at your most productive.
Powerful PCB Design Technology
At its core, SOLIDWORKS PCB provides the best in PCB design technology, capable of meeting the demands of today’s increasingly complex product designs. We’ve packed in all of the latest features to keep you at your most efficient from schematic to board layout with over two decades of PCB design technology running under the hood, all powered by Altium.
SEAMLESS INTEGRATION WITH SOLIDWORKS CAD
SOLIDWORKS PCB is a professional PCB design tool engineered specifically to bridge the gap between electrical and mechanical designs. Keep your ECAD and MCAD designs connected with managed ECO change processes, distinct workflows, and seamless integration with SOLIDWORKS CAD, all while maintaining your preferred workflow.
SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector (Powered by Altium)
SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector, for Altium Designer users, takes the guesswork out of electrical and mechanical design synchronization, providing a managed environment for design collaboration between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD mechanical environments. It easily links data between both environments, sharing critical design elements between electronic and mechanical design teams. With the SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector, everyone remains on the same page throughout the design process, helping to meet critical time-to-market goals and reducing the well-known costs associated with hardware re-spins.
- ECAD-MCAD Design Collaboration: Unmatched ECAD-MCAD integration and collaboration between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD that unifies design data and changes on both sides of the product design.
- Managed ECAD-MCAD ECO Process: A managed ECO process to and from SOLIDWORKS PCB and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD takes care of design changes including board shape, component placement, mounting holes, and cutouts keeping designs in sync.
- SOLIDWORKS File Support: Be confident in knowing the exact intent of your mechanical designer with SOLIDWORKS 3D file support that provides the most precise and pure version of component models and enclosures, ensuring that your 3D clearance check process provides a clear picture of board fit.
- Design Commenting and Revision Management: Take complete control of your design process and understand exactly what changes were made to your board design and when. Detailed design revision comments allow you to see a clear change history with the ability to accept or reject the changes.
