SOLIDWORKS PCB: Bringing Together Electrical & Mechanical Designs

By Melitta Markey on


SOLIDWORKS recently debuted SOLIDWORKS PCB. This printed circuit board design tool integrates with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, enabling a completely collaborative electro-mechanical workflow.

SOLIDWORKS PCB is powered by Altium‘s best-in-class PCB technology. This design tool creates an innovative design environment in which electronic and mechanical designs are integrated at the data level. This enables full use of the suite of SOLIDWORKS tools, including heat flow and cooling analysis. 

SOLIDWORKS PCBSOLIDWORKS PCB also completely removes communication barriers between the electronic and mechanical designers with new collaboration tools and data integration.

Instead of relying on inadequate interchange files and manual version management, engineers from both disciplines can easily access the actual models developed by their colleagues. This enables all engineers to have access to the latest design iteration, eliminating delays and costs related to integration problems.

This new tool adds to the user-friendly commitment of SOLIDWORKS, helping you become more productive, flexible and responsive to market demands. Do what you do best in SOLIDWORKS CAD, and let SOLIDWORKS PCB handle the rest.
