3D-MID technology combines electrical circuits with three-dimensional mechanical parts. This fusion of functionality opens up a world of possibilities within a vast range of application areas, and is now supported for the first time with new 3D layout technology in Altium Designer.
Design 3D Layouts In
Seamlessly Integrate Non-planar Electronic Designs into Your Altium Designer Projects
A 3D PCB document fits into your Altium Designer project structure just like a standard PCB document.
Synchronise Schematic Documents and Library Footprints with Your 3D Circuit Design
There’s no need to create any new components or footprints - simply work with your standard SMT components, wired together in the usual way in your schematic documents.
Enjoy the Freedom to Blend form with Function
Altium Designer’s 3D layout tool enables you to create designs that not only meet required electrical specifications, but are also works of art.
Allow Your Logic to Drive
Synchronise net and connectivity information from your schematic documents using the usual ECO process to ensure that your layout matches your design intent.
Work with Familiar
Lay out your design in accordance with the width and clearance restrictions defined in your design rules.
Use Alignment Tools
to Guide Your Layout
Guide your component placement, regions and traces with Altium Designer's alignment grids or MCAD-defined imported sketches.
Export Your Production-Ready
Data with a Single Command
Once your design is finished, it can be exported in a file format and data structure verifiedThe data format exported from Altium Designer's 3D Layout tool has been tested and verified by LPKF as compatible with their laser direct structuring production process. as compatible with the laser direct structuring process.
