Benefits and Description

When a component is created in ECAD and it is sent to MCAD, the component is shared and exists in both applications. The shared component is linked through the reference designator and unique id. During the collaboration process, when the ECAD tool updates the reference designator of a shared component, then the reference designator of the shared component is also updated in MCAD.
