Circuitworks alternatives

Question asked by Terry Thom on May 8, 2014

Hello

 

Started using Circuitworks to try to get a board assembly out of SW and have found it to be very poor plus our local VAR can't help with SW to CW export.  Seems this is designed for importing to SW not exporting from SW?

 

Anyhow are there other software packages out there that do this better?  Has anyone found a good tutorial on exporting from SolidWorks?

 

Here are some of the issues I am having

 

  1. Keepouts do not show on the correct side of the board
  2. No way to delete and re-define ecad export
  3. How do I define board XY zero
  4. Most of the time components only show up on one side of the board although they are on both sides
