Solidworks feature names for proper export to Circuitworks

Question asked by Edgar Nicolas on Jun 20, 2013

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 also has a height constraint (gap between the PCB and the instrument cover). How do I create these features in Solidworks to properly translate to Corcuitworks? In othe words, how do I define the "component keep-in areas" on both sides of the PCB? Is there a standard list of "feature names" (particularly compnent keep in areas, trace keepout areas) to use in Solidworks so that Circuitworks can recognize and process them properly? Thanks.
