Components placed on boards are not following the CWX co-ordinate system or being placed by the origin. The LED's should be on the opposite side... During the Building Model I get error creating vias/pads. Wondering why is that happening? Thanks, Milos How are you using Circuitworks? Is the ME defining the board outline, keepouts, and some major components and then sending it to PCB Layout? What ECAD are you using? How do you handle changes? What do you make s... Hi, We use Eagle to generate a .emn and .emp file, then we build the board model in Circuitworks. In Solidworks 2018, prior to SP3, it would build the model quickly. Starting in 2018 SP3, during the "adding component... I have Solidworks Premium 2018 and am able to load in the Circuitworks add-in. However; once loaded if I try to load an ECAD file I get the following error: "Solidworks was not found on this computer, so ... Trying to come up to speed with circuitworks 2018 with IDF 3.0; when defining the board side for a placement keep out, my only options are "top" and "bottom" even though the IDF 3.0 specification allows for the additi... I'm trying to figure out Circuitworks. I have managed to get my file to export, but some of my keepouts are shifted. Here is what Circuitworks looks like: Note the light blue circles are not concentric with ... I'm sure the solution is relatively simple, but how can I get my model to generate with the parts in the proper orientation? Right now they are being generated like: Hi All, I have been working with a Hardware Engineer to create a Rigid Flex PCB in Altium - now I would like to export the PCB with all of the components and be able to bend the flexible parts in order to valid... I am using ascii file from Pads to generate the board outline. PCB has some cutouts within the board and they are clearly visible in preview of Circuitworks. When the board is build up and transferred into SW there ar... I am wondering is there a way of associate one model to more than one component in one shot? What I mean is to select more than one component and than associate same model to all of them. Reason asking for this is whe... Just installed/Upgrade for Student Version 2018-19. How do I enable the Add-Ins. I see 12 of them on SOLIDWORKS Add-Inns tab, but can't do any thing with them Hello, I am trying to export a copper shape and PCB profile as a DXF to PADS from a part that has been made in Solidworks. I do not have access to circuitworks. We have been proceeding with the technique... I've built or downloading a number of components in SW and
placed them in my library. I save them in a directory called "CW
Library", and in options/models/ "Save the models Circuitworks
creates to these folders" dial... At my office we utilize SolidWorks (SW) and Altium which is
like Circuit Works (CW). Our engineers cannot figure how to get a
single board assembly saved as one part instead of a 400 part
assembly. Just give me someti... I have the original idx file, which was a test for our board layout. This has been opened, built and saved. I am attempting to open the next version of the idx file and I get a CircuitWorks error: "A ProStep ch... Am attempting to exploit all of the Circuitworks to ECAD and back transfers. Specifically, how to create a MCAD part with naming and coordinate system to get same orientation as ECAD symbol to support transfer and pla... Currently working on a PBC assy. where one section on the primary side has a height constraint for electrical components (meaning it can only accommodate a component with so much height) and opposite the primary side ... I'm trying to export a model to CircuitWorks as a two-sided single layer pcb. This board doesn't have any components, it's simply a board with a conductive layer on top and on bottom, with some via holes through the b... Once creating and saving an assembly model from CircuitWorks, re-opening the assembly comes up with Internal ID's missing. How can that be if I have only just created it?
