Explore the collaboration between SOLIDWORKS PCB and SOLIDWORKS mechanical. Learn how to use the collaboration tools to push a PCB board design from the SOLIDWORKS PCB electrical design team to SOLIDWORKS mechanical design.
- [Instructor] One of the major benefits of SOLIDWORKS PCB…is the collaboration and integration…between the electrical design and the mechanical design.…So, in many cases you'll have your electrical designers…designing up the schematic here and the PCB board layout.…And then on the other side of things,…you'll have the mechanical designers…to generate any mechanical layouts,…or say to fit into a mechanical enclosure.…
And usually there's a lot of back and forth…between the two different teams…to make sure everything fits nicely,…for example a PCB, a footboard,…fitting inside of an enclosure, let's say.…And SOLIDWORKS PCB collaborates these two teams…by making it really easy to push and pull board designs…from our electrical design software to our mechanical.…So, let's take a look at that process here.…So, so far we've created our electrical schematic here.…And then I could just open up my other document,…my PCB board layout here.…
And here's the start of my board layout.…Of course right now it's completely empty,…
