      Importing .asc file using circuitworks and the board thickness is not correct. any idea of how to fix board thickness?

          Me too.  The default pcb thickness is 3.349mm [0.132 in], which isn't correct.  I'm not sure if the problem is my CircuitWorks setup, or that the PCB guy has an incorrect property in the *.ASC file that I'm importing.  I'd love to know if there's a place that I can override this default thickness.  Changing it manually after the fact is a pain.

            Check the thickness value in your pcb design software.  Our guys who used Cadence didn't ever set the Z value and when I tried importing a PCB assy once all the components were Z= 500mm

                Thanks Steve!

                 

                Also, I just discovered that even though the 'Thickness' property of the "Board Extrusion" feature is read only, the thickness values of each Layer are adjustable.  It's not ideal, but at least I can correct the board thickness.  In my case, I don't have much influence over the files I get to import.
