Built to address the challenges of electronic product design by enabling seamless
collaboration between your electrical and mechanical engineers.
CoDesigner provides fast results by only analyzing and applying design changes. You always maintain control by choosing which changes to apply.
CoDesigner enables you to work in the context of your device assembly with native MCAD data, which keeps your mechanical references healthy.
Let CoDesigner deal with revisions and data formats, so you can focus on what truly matters – your design.
Set up the initial board geometry (incl. holes and cutouts) 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.
Automatically place all the components from a data management system on the MCAD side.
Transfer copper from ECAD to MCAD as a decal or as extruded bodies (eg for simulation purpose).
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.
* 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.
Open the MCAD CoDesigner panel in Altium Designer or the Collaboration Panel in Altium NEXUS client.
