You have a blank PCB board. Now what? Every electronic product has a printed circuit board inside, but how was the design implemented? Early on the demands of the PCB were simple. The board provided mechanical mounting for the components and connected the appropriate pins together. In today’s world, the mechanical requirements have become more complex as components have shrunken to the point measurements are made in fractions of a millimeter.
Altium's PCB design technologies can solve these challenges. In preparation for transferring the design from the schematic editor, Altium allows you to define the board shape, configure the drawing sheet, setup the layers, and define any keepout requirements. The ultimate objective is to generate the output files needed to fabricate and assemble the board.
With Altium Designer you can do that by:
Creating boards of any shape or structure
Having a flexible workspace with cartesian and polar grids
3D PCB design
