I need help with CircuitWorks. We have had the add-in for some time and have not used it. One of our electronics guys made a beautiful file in eagle cad pro, and I want to import it into SW. Now I have never used CW before so please bare with me...
Should I open it through the CW tab or the regular file open and is there a difference? (please don't judge me on stupid questions:)
Whatever the open menu, I see an IDB file (do I need this IDL or IDF that I have read in all your posts?), (should I ask the Electronics guy to export differently)
When I open this IDB file, what do I do next (again sorry, newbie here). The CW small window opens up, and I see my board in all it's glory. (Do I drop in the components at this point? Or does eagle cad do that? Also do I have a library or do I need to make one? If I click on the Library button i get some parts that reside on my computer?Do I need this IDF or IDL at this point?)
It seems I do not have many options other than just creating the board (which is massive, 2000 holes)... so when click the build model button it makes a supper thick board 11in x 7in x 6in thk, It is suppose to be .125in thk. I know I can just dbl click on it and adj the thickness to what I need, but what gives?
I will take whatever help I can get.
