Key 3D Features

The objective of this important release is to provide a superior environment to visualize, verify and document a printed circuit board.

  • 3D manufacturing data visualization – Allows modeling of imported Gerber, Drill, ODB++, or IPC-2581 data into a 3D PCB facsimile as well as model the 3D PCB on a fabrication or assembly panel.

  • 3D Design View Port – Quickly switch between 2D and 3D views using the new 3D Design View port.

  • New 2D/3D PCB Stack UP visualizer – A "What if" sandbox to orientate artwork layers, insert construction materials, define via technologies, and add thickness and other material attributes in a stack up environment to ensure the 3D rendering has been implemented.

  • 3D documentation – Use the 3D PCB model in documents to further clarify design intent or augment traditional 2D documents.

  • Support for 3D objects in PDF export – Users can export the 3D model or 3D document in Adobe® PDF format.

  • Cross Product Integration – Release 2018 creates an integrated 2D/3D manufacturing data preparation environment.
