SOLIDWORKS PCB: Perform a 3D Clearance Check

By Wayne Brown on October 17, 2016


Picture1-3.pngSOLIDWORKS PCB provides electronic designers with a comprehensive PCB design solution. The integrated schematic and board layout environment allows users to develop their circuit boards efficiently in one tool.

Designers can create their schematics and board layouts easier, but they can also simulate their component placement in 3D to determine any clearance issues.

The 3D Navigation tool within SOLIDWORKS PCB enables users to orient their board in a 3D simulated environment.

Define a few simple 3D clearance design rules and SOLIDWORKS PCB can perform a full 3D clearance check. In addition, the built in Design Rule Check allows designers to customize to their design standards.

Furthermore, the check extends beyond components to any object in the PCB. With a real time, 3D view, it is very easy to resolve clearance issues early in the process.
