Xpedition Layout facilitates communication of design data to mechanical CAD systems using a ProSTEP-approved data exchange standard. Designers are able to communicate between disciplines at any time or frequency, keeping participants in their respective system’s comfort zone.
ECAD and MCAD designers can collaborate from within their native environments, eliminating the need to learn new tools.
Visualization of the PCB and its enclosure within the layout environment allows designers to optimize the layout based on the mechanical and manufacturability constraints.
To clearly identify a proposed design change, designers highlight the proposed collaboration object within the 3D viewer before applying the modification in their design. Consistent, iterative communication ensures team synchronization.
