MCAD CoDesigner Updates
With the latest update, MCAD CoDesigner panel got a new improved user interface. Mechanical engineers can now use Single Sign-On (SSO) to sign into CoDesigner from their mechanical CAD. CoDesigner now shows the relative ECAD Origin (the origin which is visible in ECAD and defined by the ECAD engineer) in MCAD, and it now supports SolidWorks 2022.
In this section, we highlight features we might have had for some time, but we would like to make sure more people know about them.
You can attach comments to an entire document or a specific object, visually highlight an area directly in the design, and tag people to quickly resolve issues. You can comment both in Altium Designer and in the web interface of Altium 365, no need to leave your design environment to collaborate in real-time.
The Project History in Altium 365 provides an easy-to-use graphical project timeline. Plus, it is a way to quickly restore previous versions if something accidentally gets deleted or modified.
