    MCAD CoDesigner

    Built to address the challenges of electronic product design by enabling seamless
    collaboration between your electrical and mechanical engineers.

    Supported MCAD Tools
    PTC Creo

    CoDesigner works directly with electrical and mechanical data via a built-in panel within Altium Designer or Altium
    NEXUS and a plug-in built into the MCAD application. No manual conversion and exchange of files required!

    Stress-Free Collaboration

    Fast and Manageable

    CoDesigner provides fast results by only analyzing and applying design changes. You always maintain control by choosing which changes to apply.

    Design in Context

    CoDesigner enables you to work in the context of your device assembly with native MCAD data, which keeps your mechanical references healthy.

    Focus on Engineering

    Let CoDesigner deal with revisions and data formats, so you can focus on what truly matters – your design.

    Key Capabilities

    Board Setup

    Set up the initial board geometry (incl. holes, cutouts, keep out areas) in MCAD (according to an enclosure) and transfer it to ECAD.


    Place mechatronic components (like connectors, displays, and LED's) in MCAD and automatically place the corresponding full component footprints in ECAD.

    Data Management

    Automatically place all the components from a data management system on the MCAD side.

    Copper Transfer

    Transfer copper from ECAD to MCAD as a decal or as extruded bodies (eg for simulation purpose).

    Silkscreen Transfer

    Transfer a silkscreen from ECAD to MCAD as a decal.


    Transfer changes to the board geometry and to the component placement back and forth. The receiving engineer can accept or reject any change.

    Available with

    * Altium Concord Pro on-premises requires additional licensing
    from Dassault Systèmes in order to integrate with SOLIDWORKS.

    Free access provided for all other supported combinations of ECAD and MCAD software.
