Learn the basic user interface of the software and how it can be customized.
- [Instructor] The Solid Works PCB user interface…may look somewhat familiar to us, as it's quite similar to…any other Solid Works software we may have used.…Also, if you've ever used Altium Designer before,…this is also going to look very, very similar,…as Solid Works PCB was started…from a partnership with Altium.…So, right in the middle here, I have my main design window.…That's where I'm going to be doing…my schematic design and board layout designs.…
And of course up at the top,…I have a number of ribbon bars here.…They're just holding all the tools and commands…that we're going to be learning throughout this course.…And in addition to this, I have a few side panels open.…So right now, on my left hand side,…you can see I have my Projects side panel.…So that just shows me the current project I have open,…just a simple project here,…as well as all the documents within that project.…So here I just have two documents.…I have my schematic as well as…my board layout document here.…
Over on the right hand side, I have…
