Learn how to make changes to a PCB from the mechanical side. In most cases, this may be done by mechanical designers; however, this can also be done by electrical designers, depending on the specific company. See how this makes use of the SOLIDWORKS mecha
- [Instructor] Now that I've created this more 3D…and mechanical design of my printed circuit board,…this can be very useful to make edits and changes,…let's say, on the mechanical end of things.…So very commonly, a PCB might be fitted…into an enclosure of some kind,…and we'd need specific clearances and tolerances,…and so on, to fit correctly into that enclosure.…So that might be the mechanical team's job…to make those edits and changes.…
So what's nice about this is…instead of just jumping back and forth…through email or talking to your team members,…this board shape here is tied directly back…to my SOLIDWORKS PCB.…So as I make that change here and save it out,…it's going to automatically save out and update…on my SOLIDWORKS PCB side of things,…again, using those Push-Pull tools, as we'll see.…So let's take a look at this collaboration…and integration now going back to the electrical team.…
So what I have here, if I take a look at my assembly,…is a very simple assembly file.…It's called, that name I just gave it, O3 LilyPad PCB,…
