Ds For Free
Yes, DesignSpark (DS) mechanical is a free CAD software, but not an open source PCS software. Creating your PCB design can be frustrating when you are required to use different internet sites to accomplish your dream of bringing your idea to market. Altium takes the frustrations out with their all-encompassing PCB environment build for you in mind.
Altium Designer has an open source PCB platform with MCAD DNA with one database supplying both the mechanical and electrical view. Multi-model support, clearance checking, component placement, and rigid-flex design take a common 2D setting into the realm of 3D. The mechanical view exchanges data providing integration between ECAD and MCAD, saving you a tremendous amount of time and testing for errors.
Features of Altium Designer include:
3D - visualize your board in realistic 3D with import modules and clearance checking
MCAD Co-Designer - communicate design objectives and track changes across MCAD and ECAD designs; avoiding errors
Rigid Flex - integrated circuitry solutions and rich 3D visualization
