Electrical and mechanical engineers can collaborate to design printed circuit boards (PCBs) that fit and function in SOLIDWORKS assemblies, bridging the collaboration gap between Electrical Computer Aided Design (ECAD) and Mechanical Computer Aided Design (MCAD). Using add-on tools, such as CircuitWorks, designers and engineers have the ability to read ECAD files in SOLIDWORKS. In this blog, we'll go over what CircuitWorks is and the benefits of using this add-on.

TriMech’s solution partner, Nano Dimension, has recently created the world's first fully functional 3D printed Internet of Things (IoT) communications device. They were able to 3D print, assemble and test the device 90% faster than traditional manufacturing using their proprietary additive manufacturing process. This milestone brings with it exciting new possibilities for how we design and create the next generation of smart devices.

Just last year at SOLIDWORKS World 2016 in Dallas, Texas, SOLIDWORKS PCB (Printed Circuit Board) was added to SOLIDWORKS' product portfolio. It's a huge game changer for mechanical and electronic design teams, integrating Altium's best-in-class PCB technology with SOLIDWORKS CAD capabilities. To help users navigate the new software, we put together a SOLIDWORKS PCB guide series, covering everything from version control to the ECO process and even design for manufacturing.

Companies are growing at a rapid rate, and so are the demands for collaboration between departments. In the past, printed circuit board (PCB) designs were exported in various formats to be shared with the mechanical design engineer. Bidirectional communication was non-existent, slow and frustrating.
