xLM Solutions has developed a new tool that helps eliminate the disconnect between electrical and mechanical computer-aided design, also known as ECAD and MCAD, enabling companies to unlock new efficiencies, save time and enable a high level of collaboration between teams.
The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Creator from xLM Solutions automates the creation of 3D PCB models in SOLIDWORKS based on 2D DXF files from your ECAD system, eliminating the time-consuming and repetitive task of building a representation of the board manually.
The solution can also create assemblies based on the designed boards and components (i.e. resistors, capacitors, diodes, etc.) that are placed on the board. The tool will read the coordinate file and will pick and place each component in the correct position on the board, resulting in a full assembly with every piece in the right place.
The PCB Creator contains everything you need to automate the creation of complex 3D PCB boards in SOLIDWORKS based on 2D DXF files.
Created 3D PCB board with multiple layers based on DXF files
Ability to perform pick and place of components on board based on components
Board creation wizard for complex boards
xLM’s PCB Creator improves efficiency and expedites the time it takes to create SOLIDWORKS models and assemblies of the PCB board with components. Get in touch with our team to learn more.
