I'm evaluating the SolidWorks PCB Connector for data exchange between Altium and SolidWorks and I wonder why the whole geometry is being missed when pulling the PCB through the Connector. The board itself is being translated and shown properly, the components appear correctly in the feature tree, but you cannot see them. When opening a component you see an empty feature tree, no geometry.

Alle Techniker kennen die Schwierigkeiten, die sie erwarten, wenn es nicht gelingt, die Workflows und Daten der Elektro- und Mechanikkonstruktion zu integrieren. Eine Panne in der Kommunikation führt bei der Fertigung mit kostspieligen Prototypen und diesen gefürchteten Konstruktionsänderungen zu steigenden Kosten. Überschrittene Budgets und Termine gefährden Ihren Produktentwicklungszyklus, wobei es andernfalls mit den richtigen Werkzeugen für ECAD- und MCAD-Integration und Workflow-

“Electronics” is a very generic word today. It wasn’t when I was growing up, but I did grow up in somewhat of an electronics revolution, as PCs and electronic toys made their exciting debut when I was a kid. I was fascinated by how adding electronics to everyday toys brought them to life in a way I had never imagined possible. Today, that evolution continues.

I have no idea what this means. I can push the project successfully to the Connector from SWPCB, but my coworker tries to pull it into Solidworks CAD and sees this error message. Any ideas what its talking about?

I just installed PCB 2018 PR1 and whenever I try to sign in I get an error message stating "Failed to retrieve User. Error retrieve data from database". This is occurring from both inside PCB itself and if I try to access the Vault web console. The beta was working fine, not sure what went wrong with PR1.

How can I set the default font/size for designators on a board layout? Or can I change all designator strings in one command? You can right click and choose Find Similar Objects and by that filtering out the designators.

Can't define coordinate system SolidCAM I am trying to test the SolidCAM, so I opened a part file while watching different tutorials on youtube on how to start. I seem to have a problem at the very begging.

I reopened a project I had designed and released a while ago, made some schematic changes, updated the PCB, and now I need to redraw some traces. When I start the interactive routing tool and press tab to get the menu, I get a warning "The PCB has no valid via style rule defined".

Nearly all components that I use I generate myself and keep in library files for when edits are needed (which is fairly often). Is there a way to link to the library from the schematic so I don't have to search for it manually? KiCAD does this with a library editor link available from the context menu, which is very convenient, but I don't see anything similar here.

Before I generate all my data, I check the BOM and make sure the suppliers I've specified have my parts in stock. So far, if there's a supply issue I have had to go to my library and change the information, update all components in the schematic, then re-generate the BOM. There's gotta be a way to just select the second part supplier information that's already linked to the part, right?

Is there any way to get the variables from the data card paired up with the title block parameters in SW PCB? I haven't found anything on the ol' intertubes that says we can. Oh how nice it would be to have all of this tied together.

It may surprise you to know that it is the exception to find an electronic device that does not have a printed circuit board (PCB). Every device around you has one. There’s a bigger picture to consider when comes to the PCB, especially as we enter the age of mechatronics. The purpose of the PCB has changed over time and its role in mechatronics is going to be very important.
