CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite

Manipulate Electronic and Mechanical design information in a single consistent environment

CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite bridges the gap between ECAD and MCAD, enabling the PCB design engineer to manipulate both Electronic and Mechanical design information in a single consistent environment


  • Board Modeler Lite enables bi-directional translation of data between CADSTAR and any 3D Mechanical system, via the generic STEP or ACIS data format
  • You can create a 3D model of your PCB design using either accurate 3D models or simplified extruded outlines, then export it to STEP to share with your colleagues
  • Track and Copper information can also be included, enabling you to verify physical contact or clearance between the PC board and the enclosure, or view the interconnect between tracks on internal layers using a Section view
  • Multiple boards can be converted and modelled together to verify the interaction of connectors and cables, and mechanical items
  • Parts can be relocated to avoid potential clashes with other parts or the enclosure, with a dynamic display of 3D clearance errors as items are moved
  • Initial design data can also be pre-defined in the Mechanical design system and imported to CADSTAR via Board Modeler Lite
