SOLIDWORKS® CircuitWorks™ is a powerful electronic CAD/ECAD translator that enables engineers to create accurate 3D models of circuit boards in SOLIDWORKS 3D design software.
Using CircuitWorks, electrical and mechanical design teams can deliver highly detailed models with automatic synchronisation between electrical CAD (ECAD) and mechanical CAD (MCAD), giving your company a competitive edge.
As part of the SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D technologies, CircuitWorks enables you to share, compare, update, and track electrical design data to help you more quickly resolve electrical-mechanical integration problems.
Mechanical and Electrical Engineers can work closely in creating complex designs, helping to speed up the product development process, save time and development costs, and accelerate time-to-market.
Backed by the unrivalled support of Australia and New Zealand’s largest team of Certified SOLIDWORKS engineers, SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D key functionality includes the ability to:
> Integrate ECAD data with CircuitWorks using IDF, ProStep™ (IDX), or PADS (*.asc) formats
> Create PCB outlines, keep-out/keep-in areas, locations of major components, and maximum heights—then pass the design to electronics designers
> Filter out holes, plated holes, slots, and vias to understand board mounting and interconnection and the mechanical aspects of the design
> Import detailed electronic designs from ECAD, review the design, then build the PCB assembly with SOLIDWORKS software
> Compare different boards and board revisions to fully understand differences
> Include design change notes as data passes between electrical and mechanical team members
> Track changes as versions of the design are exchanged between ECAD and MCAD
> Integrate ECAD design data into the 3D models for use with SOLIDWORKS Electrical and SOLIDWORKS Simulation products
> Maintain and control CircuitWorks libraries with SOLIDWORKS EPDM
