CADbro 2021 Released for Better Collaboration on 3D Models


Reading time ( words)

ZWSOFT released CADbro 2021, an easy-to-use 3D CAD viewer for whoever needs to collaborate on engineering data, especially salespeople, technicians, quality controllers, designers, etc.

Import More Information in Less Time
Thanks to the upgraded translator of CADbro, users can import more versions of files, such as CATIA® V5-6R2020, Creo® 6.0, Inventor® V2020, and NX® 1899, and access their part attributes, for example, material.

Besides, the Quick Import command loads the display data and the geometric data for measuring or basic editing in a shorter time.

Modify and Collaborate on 3D Models Easily
When modifying the 3D model in the desktop app, users can easily find the command needed with the new Command Search function.

Plus, Datum CYSY and axes that facilitate the measurement of objects can be created. Datum axes are especially useful when the axis of a particular model is not in line with any default coordinate indicator.

To ensure a safe and reasonable assembly design, users can check the minimum distance between components with the new Clearance Check function.

Users can also predefine the explode steps of the model and upload them together to the cloud. Afterwards, the exploded view can be examined according to the pre-defined steps on the web.

Share Smaller Files via QR Code
To make file sharing even easier and file opening even faster, users can now generate a QR code for the model file. Also, the size of .Z3DS files shrinks without any loss of quality.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Turning ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out' into ‘Good In, Good Out’

03/23/2021 | Tamara Jovanovic, Happiest Baby
In the PCB design cycle, it is so easy to unintentionally introduce “garbage” into your system. Unless you have time to extensively check everything you bring in from an external source, it is very likely that something will not match up with your design data. In the end, this means you’ll have to put more work into your design and basically reverse-engineer a part that was supposed to save you time and effort.

Karen McConnell: Recipient of the IPC Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame Award

03/11/2021 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
"I heard about IPC when I started a new job at UNISYS after graduating college. I moved from ASIC design to printed circuit boards," said Karen McConnell after being inducted into the Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame. "At the time, in the late ’80s and early ’90s, there were rumors going around that printed circuit boards were going to disappear, and ASICs were going to take over the world. But something in printed circuit boards fascinated me. I minored in robotics in college as an electrical engineer and the data used to fabricate, assemble and test the boards is actually all robotic language. I was hooked."
