Three Methods for Building MCAD Ready Components

Created: April 19, 2021

One of the most difficult and frustrating things to arise when traveling to a foreign country is the language barrier. Communicating a simple greeting can sometimes seem like a big hassle. The same thing is true for different CAD tools. When your tools aren’t speaking the same language, you’re going to run into problems.

Bridge this gap by building out your component libraries with everything it takes to truly define a component, including 3D models that seamlessly propagate into the PCB editor and beyond.

Watch this video to learn about:

  • Add existing 3D models to your components

  • Search and integrate components with their 3D models directly into your libraries

  • Create new components with 3D models based on the component package geometry
