Pcb design adds 3D collision detection
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.
