ECAD/MCAD Collaboration Solutions: Integrating Mechanical and Electrical Product Design
Electro-mechanical design continues to gain importance, as the majority of today’s products have both electrical and mechanical components and systems

mechanical cad design  as defined in the mechanical CAD environment. Mechanical design engineers also cannot test for electromechanical interactions such as proper cable connections or circuit continuity because netlists and other electrical data are not yet made available. Mentor Graphics' Expedition PCB, Board Station XE, and PTC's Pro-ENGINEER are the first ECAD and MCAD tools to adopt the EDMD standard and introduce this tight level of collaborative integration. Because EDMD is a published standard, it is expected that

CAD Model Quality Testing


With 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models taking on a broader and more significant role in the development of new products, CAD files must flow smoothly into downstream applications. Sometimes, however, errors do occur. An off-the-shelf software tool can detect problems in the design stage so they aren’t discovered at a crucial moment in the manufacturing process, when it may be costly—or even too late—to correct them.
