Hi guys,   I'm evaluating the SolidWorks PCB Connector for data exchange between Altium and SolidWorks and I wonder why the whole geometry is being missed when pulling the PCB through the Connector. The board itself is being translated and shown properly, the components appear correctly in the feature tree, but you cannot see them. When opening a… (Show more)

I have no idea what this means. I can push the project successfully to the Connector from SWPCB, but my coworker tries to pull it into Solidworks CAD and sees this error message.   Any ideas what its talking about?

I just installed PCB 2018 PR1 and whenever I try to sign in I get an error message stating "Failed to retrieve User. Error retrieve data from database". This is occurring from both inside PCB itself and if I try to access the Vault web console. The beta was working fine, not sure what went wrong with PR1.

How can I set the default font/size for designators on a board layout?  Or can I change all designator strings in one command? Thanks for any help,     Craig

Hi guys,   I am trying to test the SolidCAM, so I opened a part file while watching different tutorials on youtube on how to start. I seem to have a problem at the very begging. They are defining the coordinate system in different way which i tried all and it's still not working. First I tried to use a coordinate sys that I created before that.… (Show more)

Hi As a new user to SW PCB I'm still getting used to where the tools are hidden. How do I interactively lengthen a route using a trombone shape trace? Thanks.

I reopened a project I had designed and released a while ago, made some schematic changes, updated the PCB, and now I need to redraw some traces.   When I start the interactive routing tool and press tab to get the menu, I get a warning "The PCB has no valid via style rule defined".   This makes no sense. I have via rules. I'm not even trying to… (Show more)

Nearly all components that I use I generate myself and keep in library files for when edits are needed (which is fairly often). Is there a way to link to the library from the schematic so I don't have to search for it manually?   KiCAD does this with a library editor link available from the context menu, which is very convenient, but I don't see… (Show more)
