SOLIDWORKS PCB supports all of the various output types necessary for board fabrication and manufacturing. Some of these outputs are used for fabrication files, and some for assembly files and sourcing. Because of these different needs, these outputs can be configured and stored in a special file then generated in a single command. Learn more about ECAD/MCAD collaboration: http://solidworkspcb.com/

SOLIDWORKS PCB has unique capabilities to view and check the board in 3D. 3D models are added to components for accurate clearance checking. Some thigs may not be obvious in 2D can be easily identified in 3D such as unintentional component overlap or precise reposition of silkscreen. Copper can be included in the 3D export of the PCB for final validation inside of SOLIDWORKS.

Developing and managing multiple product configurations from one PCB project is done through Variants in SOLIDWORKS PCB. Use Assembly Variants to un-install components or even completely load a different component, as an alternative replacement part onto the same PCB. This is can be done while automating the multiple assembly files required for each configuration including BOM, pick and place, PCB assembly drawings and schematics. Variants eliminates the need to create a unique version of the

Shaving many hours of the setup process using SOLIDWORKS PCB trusted easy managed libraries helps with the timeline and budget. Key to any design is to find and source the right components. SOLIDWORKS PCB made component selection simple through real time Supplier links. Supplier links connects directly to major part suppliers from within SOLIDWORKS PCB providing accurate parameters, data sheet, pricing and stock information to make the best selection.

Design Synchronization between the schematic and PCB can be very tedious during the design development cycles. Whether transferring schematic design to a new PCB or making changes to an existing design, design data must be kept in sync at all time. SOLIDWORKS PCB ‘s unified platform helps keeping your workflow organized and streamlined with its integrated robust design synchronization engine through the ECO (Engineering Change Order). It compares the design data between the nominated schematic

SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector allows for a seamless collaboration between SOLIDWORKS PCB and SOLIDWORKS. With the help of the Connector, we enable mechanical and electrical teams to work together effectively with a single reference for product design. Changes to the board shape or the positioning of critical components are transferred between design teams from one application to the other. Notifications about incoming changes appear automatically in the Collaboration panel, as soon as a Push is

Der Wunsch, „Direct Editing“- Feature zu entfernen und die Assoziativität zur bereits existierenden Verknüpfungen in anderen Baugruppen zu behalten, wurde in SOLIDWORKS 2017 umgesetzt. Das wurde möglich mit der neuen Funktion „In Körper umwandeln“. Hier ein kurzer Film dazu, bei 1 Minute 55 Sekunden sieht man die neue Funktion „In Körper umwandeln“. Gezeigt werden auch die neue Funktion 3D Interconnect zur nativen Verwendung von Inventor-Dokumenten.

With SOLIDWORKS world coming up soon in LA, I'm sure everyone feels the glitz and glamour that comes with Hollywood. In celebration of such an amazing, yearly event we have made a few little Hollywood themed 3D printable. For this one we have used SOLIDWORKS and 3D printing to make our own little Hollywood hills replica. It was so cute, we got cheeky and made a second but this one with the SOLIDWORKS logo in the hills.

With technology advancing so fast and getting cheaper, it is easier than ever get access to it. This allows amateur filmmakers to have access to equipment that used to cost thousands of dollars and is now readily affordable to almost anyone. One piece of equipment is the gimbal stabilizer. This is a kit that has two motors and will keep the camera level while the operator moves.

In part 3 of our 4-part series on building this functional geared heart pendant in SOLIDWORKS. Up to this point we have built the gear functionality into the design and we’ve created a little window into the inner workings of our heart. In this part of the series we will build some functionality into the back side of the parts to make this a unique reversible design. Along the way we will provide some best practices for pulling back on the history tree to make “last minute edits” to the design

Many of us SOLIDWORKSusers would be considered gearheads, or high-tech enthusiasts. But some of us take our “gear-headed-ness” to such a high level that our enthusiasm for all things mechanical just pours from our heart. This tutorial series is for you, the SOLIDWORKS user that says “Nay, I am not just a gearhead, I’m a gearheart.” In this four-part series we’ll be building a functional geared heart pendant using mostly essential SOLIDWORKS features, with a few unique part and assembly features
