Creo ECAD-MCAD Collaboration
Creo ECAD-MCAD Collaboration is an interactive environment for native ECAD tools, Creo Parametric, and Creo View ECAD. ECAD and MCAD users can propose and share design changes and synchronize the mechanical and the electrical aspects of an ECAD assembly design. Deletion, modification, and movement of assembly components, and changes to the board outline constitute a design change. The current design is compared to a design before the latest changes, the compare-to-design, in Creo View ECAD Compare and an incremental EDMD IDX file is saved. Either side can use Creo View ECAD to view the proposed changes.
The incremental EDMD IDX file includes the content of the incremental design change and a record of the change history. Use this incremental EDMD IDX file to propose and review design changes in a workflow across Creo Parametric and the native ECAD tools.
