Pcb design adds 3D collision detection

April 19, 2022  Stephen Law

PULSONIX Version 12.0 pcb design software adds 3D capabilities, significant speed improvements and highly requested usability enhancements. Software also features 64-bit processing and multi-core support, allowing users to quickly visualize design changes in 3D even with large designs and stacked boards. 3D capabilities include 3D collision detection for both multi-board designs and board folding. This allows designers to visualize boards in a stacked or folded configuration and to verify boards and components fit together in the intended space. Automated clash detection will flag any space violations, and there is a new capability that allows designers to ignore clashes that are intended for known connection points like plugs and sockets. The 3D capabilities are integrated into a consolidated 3D design menu that organizes setup and operation for a more intuitive workflow. This simplifies the interface and enables new functionality while minimizing complexity.
