San Diego, CA (Jan 14th, 2016) – Digital Dimensions, a SOLIDWORKS value-added reseller since 1995, has announced today that it is expanding its line of engineering and design software to include Altium MCAD Co-Designer: SOLIDWORKS. This add-on allows ECAD and MCAD designers to send and receive design changes between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS.
“PCB data can finally be effortlessly shared between your electrical team using Altium Designer and mechanical team using SOLIDWORKS.” said Gordon Pursel, Product and Marketing Manager at Digital Dimensions. “The MCAD Co-Designer extension from Altium will take hours of guesswork out of the design process. Design collaboration becomes seamless with a managed change environment between ECAD and MCAD domains, while integrated data keeps electronics and mechanical design linked together.
MCAD designers working in SOLIDWORKS and ECAD designers working in Altium Designer can use the collaboration panel to push and pull design changes from one application to the other. As soon as a push is performed, the designer on the other side will automatically receive notifications in the collaboration panel regarding the incoming changes.
Effortless ECAD/MCAD Design Collaboration
- Integrated Design Data - Design collaboration becomes seamless while integrated data keeps electronics and mechanical design linked together.
- Distinct Workflows - Mechanical and electrical engineers work in their own respective workflows, all while keeping design data tightly linked.
- Work Efficiently - Eliminate process bottlenecks, start a board layout in either SOLIDWORKS or Altium Designer and immediately share this critical integration across all teams.
