I have a flex design in solidworks. I would like to bring the design to Pads by exporting from circuitworks. What I got is only the outline. All traces are missing. How to solve this issue?
You require a IDF version 4 import into Pads, if it only accepts IDF 3.0 then you will not be able to transfer the routes. What you could do is export the board as an IDF, import that into Pads. Then export the routing as a DXF file import that into Pads. Depending on how good the DXF import is you may have to use the DXF as a template and route real tracks over them.
IDF version 4 will export tracks etc, or else a DXF import into PADS.
