- Creo ECAD-MCAD Collaboration Extension -
Accelerate Design Collaboration

Delivering innovative electromechanical designs is challenging for even the most experienced teams. Communicating design changes between disparate electrical and mechanical design solutions can be cumbersome and inefficient. Coordinating design efforts between functionally or geographically dispersed teams adds even more complexity to the challenge. The PTC Creo ECAD-MCAD Collaboration Extension can help you overcome these obstacles and improve design collaboration between electrical and mechanical designers. PTC is the only MCAD vendor offering this new technology, which leverages both PTC Creo and PTC Creo View. This technology will help you improve your electromechanical detailed design processes, reduce collaboration errors, and get products to market faster.

PTC Creo ECX is compatible with Cadence Allegro PCB Design, Mentor Board Station XE, Mentor Expedition and Mentor Pads.

In today’s competitive Electronics and High Tech market, ECAD and MCAD teams must work together seamlessly in order to get winning products to market faster. Traditional collaboration methods are no longer suitable. When design changes impact both ECAD and MCAD designs, more efficient tools are required to improve communication of design changes and proposals within each discipline’s established comfort zone. The Pro/ENGINEER ECAD-MCAD Collaboration Extension (ECX) gives you the industry’s most advanced capabilities to help you optimize your electromechanical detailed design process.
