Breaking Down the Wall ECAD MCAD Mechatronic Design Collaboration



hello everyone and welcome to today's webcast on mechatronic design collaboration I'm the moderator Christa proko before we get started I want to let you know that you can submit questions for today's presenters by typing them into the Q&A panel at any time we'll collect them and address them at the end of the presentation I also want to mention that there will be a recorded version of today's webcast and we'll send you a link and a follow-up email now I'd like to introduce our presenters we're happy to have with us today two technical managers from corporate SolidWorks JP Emanuel is an expert on electrical design and Christopher Swain is an expert on PCB design now to start off the presentation I'm going to turn it over to our first presenter JP take it away hey thanks Krista hey everybody thank you for joining us here today and welcome to electrical engineering so as Krista said and just to kind of introduce myself this is me I'm up actually on in Connecticut getting ready for another another nor'easter another big snowstorm is apparently headed our way here tomorrow but just a quick background on who I am where I came from just so everybody has an idea how you know this is actually the submarine I was on years ago this is us the USS Alexandria up in the North Pole and then after several years of being underwater I came a defense contractor I did a lot of one-off designs a lot I learned D work you know specifically projects just like these they actually are pretty intricate they they started out as a white paper an idea and then we worked all the way through every phase of the design process including assembly installation on submarines and even training the crew how to use the equipment later on so I like to always start with like kind of an icebreaker and this is no offense to any mechanical engineers in the room but or on the webcast I should say but what I like to describe this as is what a mechanical engineer here is when he's talking to an electrical engineer because nine times out of 10 they have no idea what's going on my favorite is actually dig back to the future we have that flux capacitor right there so the typical design process that we see across the board in in whatever tool you're using or even if you're using pen and paper which we still run into is you have to draw everything out and then you have to draw your lines and and connect all the dots and edie text boxes or do whatever you need to to make that design correct from there we have to go in and document everything and typically we see that outside of the software and something like Excel creating our bombs creating our two from Wireless and then we have to go in and we have to audit that information and we have to second check that make sure all that information is correct well that's that process typically never ends now I'm guilty of it to where I am I constantly it's second check even a third check where it has to constantly go through revisions so what's all works electrical allows you to do is a lot takes allows you to take a lot of that back in information and pull it up front into your design process so you'll hear me say things like garbage in garbage out the more information you put upfront in your design process the better reporting the better back-end information you will capture and be able to move on to the next project the other item is the key factor no pun intended with that key connector there but we have this shared library where our manufacturer parts library can actually each part can be identified by multiple symbols so if I make a change to this part it will reflect in my schematic on every different instance of that particular connector so what I really want to show you today is I'm not going to go through the picks and clicks of drawing drawing wires and adding symbols because most likely we've all seen what how to add a symbol and if we want to get to that we can always visit that later but I really want to show you is some of the key features that I really like and why I enjoy using SolidWorks electrical by streamlining our process with these features we're going to go ahead and route some wires in three just so you can get an idea of that collaboration between the mechanical in the electrical space and then we're going to come back into the electrical space and we're going to show some of those reports so let's get to designing so the first thing I want to do just real quick this is our chassis here we're going to be working with and I'm open up on the 3d side so just to show real quick what our our project looks like in our project setup we have our project documents and I can actually view them from this end I can't edit them from this side however I at least have a view and and I can start to collaborate and communicate a little bit better because I can see where the designer on the electrical side where he's going with the project so with that open let's go ahead and take a look at Salt Works electrical so let me go to my Desktop here and I will open up SolidWorks electrical and again that communication collaboration is key we have our what's known as our projects manager and here we can actually see the first project that's in red lets me know that that's of course that's me lets me go ahead and open that project but it gives me a warning let me know that somebody else is already working on that project so again let's jump into some of those really cool features in our detailed schematic so what we have here is just our basic input power and we have a power supply well this power supply is something that we use all the time something that we're comfortable using and well I want to reuse it again I don't have to go and find an old project copy paste it so we have this nifty tool here called macro creation where I can actually initially I have to go in and I have to create this part and all these connectors and draw these lines but once I'm comfortable with that and most times these wires are going to be the same from point A to point B I can actually take that initial drawing that I made and copy it over into what's known as my macros palette I can give it a fancy name put it in a specific library and now it is saved and when I'm ready to use it again I simply drag and drop that right into my project just like that now the nice thing with this is that it captures all that metadata that's built into these symbols so I have my power supply I have all those connectors that I need to go to that power supply I have all the individual wire information for each one of these wire types so it's capturing not just the symbol in the drawing the visual it's also capturing all that metadata that we need the other nice thing with this is if we're using it multiple times in a project if we notice over here I have PS one power supply one it did not overwrite any of my information that I have here and this is ps2 so it will it will account for and a nice little design role check where I can I can set it up if I want to overwrite this I can set it to be the same one but it's defaulted to be adding to a new instance of this so that it will add new instances to my build materials as we go forward so another thing that I like to point out another great feature and I actually when I first started doing this I started I discovered this on on accident but we have our wires here and obviously we have to connect that to an opposing page so I'm going to use what is known as our origin destination arrows tool here and this tool will allow me to connect those pages together so I'm going to go ahead and find the other end of this connector I have it here we have two leads here and I have two more over here so let me go ahead and connect those up a nice nice little design role check is if you notice if I try to bring my my cursor down towards the black wire my ground it's not letting me it's not letting me connect that because the wire styles the wire is different it's not just lines they're not just colored lines there's actually a lot of metadata built into these so I'm going to go ahead and select that and I will do the same for the other wire as well now when I'm ready to I can come in and I can simply double click and it will take me to the opposing page the nice thing with this more importantly is that if I export this information to a PDF let's say because a lot of people don't have Saltworks electrical you know our customers or our subcontractors that we're working with don't have it those are also hyperlinked in the PDF so instead of giving somebody that giant 11 by 17 book now I can just simply give them this and export it to a PDF and they can have a ruggedized iPad or something like that and ready to go out in the field so next thing I'd like to talk about is our terminal blocks so with the terminal block I could find the right drawing here there it is so with terminal blocks there's a lot of different ways you can set it up but one of my favorite things to be able to do is is create a terminal block drawing from my schematic that I already have what I mean by that is I'm going to go ahead and drop in some terminals here create a new terminal block and I'm going to simply go ahead and draw that terminal strip and if we notice on the left hand side there's a new drawing being created for us automatically you and just like that I have a new terminal block drawing so with this I can now create a new drawing something to give maybe to the guys on the shop floor or the folks don't want to exclude any women on that but anybody on the shop floor that might be actually starting to build a chassis or a cabinet whatever it may be you have a good starting point so to take this a step further than that we can go ahead and actually create a cable between these and let's go ahead do that real quick and I'm going to redraw that or update that drawing and let's take a look again and now we notice even more detail in that drawing where I have my terminals and the wires coming out of that cable turning back into a cable coming back out of the cable into going each to each pin on that connector or motor or relay or whatever it may be that we're actually connecting to so you can actually capture a lot of details in a different format than just a detailed schematic which might be hard for somebody to actually read so with that let's go ahead and take this information all these schematic sheets that we've created and go ahead and route in 3d so in order out in 3d once I have my design set up and I've made my parts I have to make my my connectors in SolidWorks 3d electrically intelligent which is adding connection points to them I have features here that I can route my wire so I'm going to go ahead and I'll just start with my socket Junction modules here I'm not going to route everything because we might be here a little while if I tried to write out everything so I'm just going to choose a few of these and go ahead and let it route now again I am taking my hand off the mouse I'm letting the software do everything for me what it's doing right now is from point A to point B it's looking at my schematic and looking at every single connection point I have specifically right now the ones connected to those socket Junction modules and it's trying to route them automatically for me I'm not sitting here routing everything by hand using splines from point A to point B it's taking into account certain things that I will show you in just a second what I've done as soon as it's done here but I did set up what is known as a guide line to kind of give an idea of you can see it in blue right there I set this up it's just a grid or however you want it this is totally user-defined to kind of give the wires an idea of where we should route the wires because if I don't set that up if they're just going to route wherever they want but we can see real quick with that that I do have several different wire types my five my 12 and my 3.3 routed throughout my cabinet and I can get a good get get a good idea of how to how my wires are going to route later on I just wanted to point that out this is another step we would take down the road but it's something very cool that we can see and visualize and communicate that again that communicate that design idea not just in our electrical team but to mechanical to marketing to logistics at subcontractors whoever maybe they now have a better idea of how our chassis our cabinet whatever we're working on can be laid out so back over in the electrical space a few more things that I'd like to talk about to help make our jobs just a little bit easier is something known as why're numbering I know that having been a defense contractor wire numbering can be a pain and I don't know how about anybody else if they have that issue to I there's been times where somebody throws a change at me and now I might as well just redo all the wire numbering and start over again so what I want to do is go ahead and number my wires and just like that I should have wire numbers very basic numbering configuration as we see here 25 and 37 and that number is driven from our wires remember I mentioned before that there's a lot more information behind these wire types so this information is a formula for every different wire type so if you are a defense contractor you might have to manipulate that number in accordance with what the government or what the military wants you to do in other cases if you ever own it homegrown wiring configuration wire numbering scheme that's totally up to you you would come in here and mess with this formula and set that up that way when you're ready to you can absolutely just come in and if you need to change it or remove them and go ahead and put them back and then give me a new number for that one so next thing we want to do is I'm going to go ahead and generate some reports so in order to generate reports very simple step I'm going to come to my projects Oh showed up on my other screen and I'm going to find the types of reports I want let's go ahead and choose a few of these and simply select okay and if we notice on the left hand side there are several reports that will be generated for us automatically again remember garbage in garbage out all that information that we captured in our design is being pulled into these reports from the design itself all that metadata is being pulled into these so we'll give this another 10 seconds or so let this finish now these these reports are totally customizable if you have a standard that you want to capture and and you need to show certain fields versus certain fields you can certainly do that you can edit these configurations for each one of these types of reports and manipulate them in in such a fashion and just about done almost one second there we go so real quick let's take a look at what these look like here and now they might be pretty generic nothing crazy I have a few items here that we want to count for I might want to add my description here you can again as I mentioned before you can set this up you can add additional fields such as maybe vendor maybe digi-key Newark whoever you buy your parts from McMaster and and add those to this list you can set up two different types of Bill of Materials one for the the folks on the shop floor and one for the logistics team who has to order this because they need to know the price and other information such as that whereas again the guys in the shop board probably don't care about what the price is the other nice thing is we can go in and take a look at our wires and just two quick examples of wires that we routed there is capturing the actual length the full length of all the wires or each individual wire that we routed in our cabinet so for this instance we need 46 inches obviously there's a few on the on the page before this and 16 here so it gives us a better idea of setting up and you know maybe we do buy our wire by bulk and you know thousand feet at a time but if you do need to calculate exactly how much wire we need for this particular project this is a great way to do that so I know I covered a lot really quick right there but few things that we did we definitely streamlined our process by using things like macros and using those origin destination arrows to communicate our design better to folks that aren't using SolidWorks Electrical just a quick view of what it's like to route our wires in 3d and then generating our project deliverables so a few benefits to this of course is increasing our communication collaboration time to market is extremely important eliminating a lot of hidden costs as well as streamlining our development a few other things real quick is a sawhorse Electrical if you haven't heard and if you're if you're new to it so SolidWorks electrical has a new add in now for solvers P PDM so we can actually connect to that and manage a lot of our information through the PDM product as well and one other thing I threw this slide in here is we have to start thinking about not just our electrical team or our mechanical team but who else in our team do we want to collaborate with you know we have obviously management that they want to see what's going on but we also have analysts we also have the shop floor add in the network team marketing logistics so on and so forth there's products that you can link all these products in such a fashion that you know you're working under the same umbrella working in the same project the same assembly let's say and you're passing that information back and forth successfully so with that we have one last slide here before I pass the baton over to Chris is if you're looking for parts let's say you have you're using allen-bradley or a lot of automation direct parts you can go ahead and check out Saul's electrical portal we call the ECP and they have a lot of those parts I think last I looked there was 112 million parts on that that website and if you've been using SolidWorks you probably familiar with 3d content central and toolbox who wants to go and reinvent a 6:32 screw and you don't have to and then finally my SolidWorks comm where you can go in and actually solve worse electrical I've actually personally been adding a lot of videos and basic content on how to create a symbol how to access my my libraries and how to understand my libraries and how they work so it's a lot of get starting videos to help you help you move forward in those first few months as you know learning that muscle memory of getting used to things so with that I will pass that over to Chris all right Thank You JP I'm assuming that you can see my screen now yes I can see your screen thank you very much good afternoon everyone thanks for spending a few minutes with us and allowing me to review our printed circuit board design environment and the title here is is we take this very seriously breaking down the wall between ecad MCAD those of you that have been in the industry for in depierre to time know that this is a reality it's not a metaphor and the mechatronic design collaboration process is an area in which we really differentiate ourselves and I hope to give you a little bit of a glimpse into what that's all about my name is Chris Swain I've been with SolidWorks for a couple years now but I've spent my entire career in the printed circuit board design industry and I'm based just outside of Boston so let's let's take a look at this and what we're doing in terms of our messaging we're trying to be clear in the definition of what we're doing here mechanically driven workflow for printed circuit board design that sounds like an oxymoron we're talking about mechanics and electronics but the two need to be spoken in the same sentence because in looking at our objective we need to consider the complete design process the complete product design rather and up until not long ago and and continuing today is a fact that a lot of data a lot of information a lot of responsibility for the same product is in fact segregated siloed separated and it can't be in order to achieve if we want to achieve the levels of efficiency that we require things such as basic as a creation of a board outline anyone that's had to do it and working in an environment where you're communicating data between the mechanical engineer and the electrical engineer know that even for a basic rectangular board it's still difficult and if it's more complex with curves and cutouts it can be a real nightmare component placement driven by the electrical engineering group but must be refined by the mechanical engineering group because there are critical components from the mechanical perspective those that plug into connectors components LEDs and switches that need to be accessible on the edge or through a cover all an integral part of the form fit and function of this product that you're developing then of course the need to be able to view the state in either 2d or 3d depending on what exactly that you're doing and key to all this as JP just mentioned with respect to electrical is the ability to manage all data in one location with one utility and something that many or all of you already have and that is SolidWorks PDM so this is the key in looking at your environment it's my understanding that most of all of you already have SolidWorks CAD that's why you're on this call now you probably either have PDM or you're considering it and SolidWorks PCB fits right in there and is able to leverage the entire SolidWorks ecosystem and the solutions that are already existent there so we're actually providing greater value without having to spend more money by leveraging the power of PDM and being able to integrate more closely with the mechanical environment and again all aspects of the design this is a design that I'm going to use to do a quick demo here but this is a real design and as you can see there are a lot of different elements and these elements are designed in different solutions so the board they're obviously designed in SolidWorks PCB there are some cables that are in there that were designed with all works electrical and of course all the mechanical aspects are covers the the clamping mechanisms etc designed with the SolidWorks CAD solutions in the printed circuit board design process we've broken it down into five sections it's not this is an our invention this is the way it's done but what differentiates us from everyone else and what's unique to SolidWorks is the ability to collaborate with that is really the heart of our solution component research a lot of people call library management or library creation we include everything including going and finding the part of the web as JP said who wants to recreate a 6:32 screw who wants to recreate an OE o 5 footprint schematic capture of course bringing all the elements together the the symbology with the correct interconnect and the rules as the engineer requires in order to create the functionality of our product which is then physically implemented in our printed circuit board through the placement and routing of the components and the traces and of course then the creation of the deliverables the key here is that items 1 through 4 are not serial processes these are done in parallel we can't wait for one person to finish in order for someone else to start so we provide an environment that allows each of the people that are working in these areas to communicate with the other so that we can work forward everyone is doing productive meaningful work and able to share their results with their counterparts so in terms of collaboration the way it's done today and I've visited lots and lots of prospects and people that have turned into real customers and what they've told me is that in the creation of a board outline it takes several steps and the reason is because of the methodology that's being used I dfid X or step and it takes I always ask how many times does it take and I'm told 10 to 20 times and some people offer that to somebody else a note takes us more than that so and that's just a creation of the board and getting it right and that is key to it's key to have the board fit into the year into the enclosure or into the product within which it's going to reside and then the placement of the components a lot of trial and error law to manual checking and component placement data is communicated through the same standard interface files and then what do you do to track the changes well some people don't even try but the documentation of the changes who did what when and where is pretty important to the process and again a lot of manual steps a lot of opportunities for error well we do have a better way we're able to create the board outline from the exact space within which that board is going to live the board outline assembly can be started either on the mechanical or the PCB side all that's communicated with the integrated functionality associated with the solution and the components are driven by electrical intent so the electrical engineer a printed circuit board designer is the person that actually does the placement but the mechanical engineer can refine the placement they have the ability to move those components around to meet the mechanical needs as well and the interference checking standard utilities within SolidWorks CAD so it's it's the same set of solutions that you're familiar with that you know and love and you're able to perform those same processes with the elements associated with the printed circuit board and then tracking changes and all communication is done with the again the collaboration solution where the exact chronology of the changes who made what change and when and what change were presented and which were not accepted so it's a complete tracking of everything that's going on so what I'm going to do is I'm going to go through a quick demo this is the only part that I'm really going to demo of the actual collaboration process so what we're going to start with this is the SolidWorks PCB environment and we're going to be communicating with the mechanical environment so this is our prosthetic arm used by stroke victims to help with movement if they've lost a movement of their arm hand or fingers and those of you that are familiar with SolidWorks will recognize every single command that I'm doing right now what I've done is I've started a board in this environment and what I'm going to do is I'm going to place this board into this environment and this is just our starting board so the starting point is the placement of the board we want to make sure it's placed exactly as we need it in the x y&z axis as a mechanical engineer I know that the board needs to live exactly on that spot and now I want to fit the board into the space what I've done in anticipation of this I've already created a profile based on the space that this board needs to live in so just go in here and in that mini-strokes I have created the exact board outline to fit into my product with the cutouts and curves and everything else as a printed circuit board designer I can tell you that this is absolutely one of the most tedious tasks in the printed circuit board design process because there isn't a printed circuit board design solution out there that has a reasonable set of utilities to allow you to do that going back to my board perspective I'm going to go ahead and use the integrated communication mechanism built into our connector I'm going to communicate with my printed circuit board designer and I'll request please place critical components exact board outline assembly vo a created I'll go ahead and post that the only requirement from a configuration perspective is that the printed circuit board designer and the mechanical engineer are pointed the same server they don't have to be in the same office the same building or even the same part of the country as long as you're pointed to the same server you're good to go as you can see in my lower right hand corner where my collaboration window is I'm immediately notified of any changes that occur if I happen to open this design for the first time so the mechanical engineer has been doing some work on this design he's he or she has sent that design across I open this for the first time first thing in the morning this is the first thing that I'll see I can go ahead and view the changes I can preview the proposed changes and then I can go ahead and accept it if I want to and this becomes my board outline at this point I can go ahead and read in my changes I'm just using the e co-manager I just want to place my quote/unquote critical components which for me in our language means the connectors first I'll go ahead and disable everything select the connectors and go ahead and there are my connectors in the starting location I can go ahead and place these and right now my placement is tentative because I don't know exactly where they need to go I know that from a printed circuit board design perspective as long as they fit within the confines of the board outline I'm good to go I can go ahead and push this over to the my mechanical engineer and I can stay connectors placed please check for fit and I'll go ahead and post that now it's within this environment that we've established the relationship between the schematic symbol the PCB footprint and the 3d solid model if we want to we can go into 3d mode and we can do an examination of this to see to make sure that everything looks good we can do an inspection of the results but we're going to continue the change process here going back over to the mechanical engineering environment I see that new changes have been detected I get the message I can go ahead and view those changes I feel the same process I can go through view the lists I can preview each but for the sake of time I'm just going to go ahead and check them all I've accepted them and it will read in those 3d solid models which I've linked to my footprint on the mechanical side and here I have my board so this is the board with the connectors place but more importantly I want to see the connectors on the board place inside of my product and this is essentially a virtual prototype I can check to make sure that the components are fit correctly as they should be fitted and I see right away that there's a couple of problems this connector is supposed to be plugged in this battery pack and these connectors aren't exactly lined up so I can very quickly and easily go in here and I can choose to make some changes I can go ahead and plug this in I could do a mate standard mating process and go ahead and move this connector as well and then I discover that the problem is more serious and I realize these connectors are in fact on the wrong side of the board so I'm going to have to go ahead and I'm going to place this in the correct XY location and then from AZ perspective because of the electrical implications that's going to have to be corrected by my printed circuit board design colleague so go back to the board use my collaboration window push us back over and I'll say connectors incorrect XY location must be on board bottom and we'll post that I'm sitting over here my printed circuit board design environment I see the changes let's see oops connectors on the wrong side I'll go ahead and view the changes same behavior I can click to see an animation of the proposed change so I can see where the mechanical engineer is placing this just in case they're doing something really wacky and they're going to make some kind of a problem that's going to be very difficult for me to undo these all look reasonable I'll check them all I'll accept them and they've been moved now I can go in here and I can move these from the top layer to the bottom layer you you and I can go through it I can do an inspection on go ahead and rotate this and say yep there they on the bottom looks good and we can continue on so what I just did was live this was not recorded so the the speed of communication is really the only real restriction is your IT infrastructure but that's how fast this works but those were live commands and those are live actions that I took now we're going to go back into presentation mode so what's key here is that we are collaborating we're not translating we're not converting or not interpreting there we get it right the first time and just in the couple of problems that I found using the virtual prototype concept I think I saved at least one unnecessary prototype maybe more that alone probably would have paid for the cost of the solution the other important element to remember is that the engineers remain in their environment the mechanical engineer doesn't need to become a printed circuit board designer and vice versa unless they want to great opportunity easy to use easy to learn solution we think there's great opportunity for saving time and material just with the collaboration aspect looking at component research a lot of people call this library management library creation we offer the ability to do all of that and more one of the key utilities here the ability is to using the integrated supplier link manage the suppliers that you're actually doing component searches for as the electrical engineer is looking for the right component for their design studies have shown that over half of an electrical engineers time is spent just in looking for the right part and this is the part in a demonstration when I'm sitting in a room and all the electrical engineers are nodding their head so using this utility we're able to by focusing on the approved suppliers the ones with whom you may have an established business relationship you can go to look for a connector for example you can ensure that the parametric data is correct that the availability is there for the quantities that you're looking for and that the price falls within your budget so this is using this integrated supplier link we're able to do that the the we also provide about 250,000 parts just as a starter library so that's a good start as we all know there are millions of parts out there so this will get you moving on the right track and what we're by providing these utilities the efficiency and component research a good starter library the integrated supplier link also the ability to create components as required within the environment it gives the engineers more time to do actual design work with in the printed circuit board design solution it is an integrated solution it is when I say integrated it was developed as a part of the printed circuit board design environment they're not two different solutions from different companies that were merged under a graphic user interface and within this environment the electrical engineer is able to create the circuit the circuitry that will provide the functionality and performance of the product that's being developed and also provide all the supporting documentation as are an integral part of the function of that schematic so the part the fact that it's an integral part of the complete design solution with a streamlined interface and easy to use we think is a huge differentiator in terms of just being able to bring a solution into an environment where there may not have been a printed circuit or design solution before or there's something old that you're looking to replace and upgrade and bringing people up to speed very quickly is really part of the objective here going to the physical implementation process that is the placement and routing of the components and connections as required to fit on the board to fit within the mechanical environment the structure or that the board is resident in and to ensure that all of the traces and signals are our converge are routed to the rules as defined by the electrical engineer is key so in terms of the going through the design verification process you're able to assign and define rules for virtually every aspect of the design from electrical needs to your routing specifications specific to surface mount technology plane layer creation etc etc so there's a very fine level of resolution that can be defined from a rules perspective per net per layer etc etc so in terms of the physical implementation of the electrical engineering intent this environment allows for that exactly as you saw you can work in either the 2d or 3d mode to help and visualize and really understand what's going on from a design perspective not just electrically and mechanically and again this is an integral part of a complete unified solution and the last name of course is outputting your deliverables those things required to go through the manufacture assembly and documentation of this design so what we're able to do in the support of the board VAT and manufacturing process is for each one of these steps we can configure the output format in this case for the Bill of Materials there are a number of fields a lot of user definable definable fields that can be created we can format that bill materials exactly as required in this case selecting which layers we're going to output information for identifying exactly where that's going to be stored on our network and a single button push to generate all that data and of course this is a process if you're doing a lot of designs at the same type you can have environments you can have this established for each that your you are assured of creating the output design output data in a consistent manner but again all in one location that's really the key message here a quick and efficient process and the consistency of the data ensuring that it's formatted exactly as you're looking for is really the driving element so we've covered very quickly all of this the intent is to show you something here that will pique your interest that will make you want to see more and I hope that we've given you a little bit of glimpse into that usually collaborations enough people want to want to see more but in terms of the SolidWorks PCB solution it is a complete solution covering all aspects of the design process and if you're looking for some additional information on the web you can go to SolidWorks PCB comm there are some tech tutorials there's about fifteen two to three minute videos of picks and clicks on performing specific functions not meant as a replacement for training but just to give you an idea for the ease of use of the solution there's a lot of information at the SolidWorks comm website and of course we strongly encourage you to always contact Fisher Unitec for more information so I apologize for going through that as quickly as I did I did want to make sure that that data was covered
