Redlining

CADSTAR Redlining

Improving communication between multidisciplinary teams is a key way companies can maintain a competitive edge and promote design quality. Where PCB designs are outsourced, this becomes even more important.

In a typical scenario, Electronic Designers want to pass back comments while reviewing the design. Or, once a product has been assembled, Mechanical Engineers need to communicate an issue affecting manufacturing. All too often, reading comments on a printout is a frustrating exercise: comments can be illegible, incomplete, or even forgotten. This can lead to a disorganised review process or, worse still, unnecessary errors creeping into designs. By incorporating markers and comments alongside the design CADSTAR can help overcome these issues, making it easy for engineers to communicate between different departments or companies.

CADSTAR Redlining allows you to quickly mark-up designs during review and make it easy to communicate design issues. These markers can be added to the CADSTAR design without changing the actual PCB or Schematic. The Redlining marker is a simple item defined by a circular shape and can support the addition of descriptive text, color and line thickness.

Maximise the power of 3D with Board Modeler Lite

Jun 22, 2017

CADSTAR Board Modeler Lite bridges the gap between electronic and mechanical design allowing the PCB designer to work in a 3D environment, enhancing the design flow by reducing the number of design iterations – clearance errors are avoided, accuracy is improved as part locations can be aligned precisely to the mechanical enclosure, and resources are optimised by bringing physical verification tools into the CADSTAR design environment.
