Altium Designer's On-Demand licensing offers a global floating license capability, within the geographic scope of your license and the conditions set out in the EULA, without the need to implement your own dedicated system provides a flexible, streamlined approach to licensing, allowing you to obtain a license in seconds, when and where you want it.
This documentation is now considered legacy and only remains useful to those who already have the extension as part of their installation. If required, contact SOLIDWORKS for information about the SOLIDWORKS PCB Connector. To learn about Altium's latest Co Design technology, use the link in the feature box below. Altium continues to develop MCAD-to-ECAD Co Design capabilities. Now available as an add-in for SOLIDWORKS version 2018 and higher, Co Designer supports: bi-directional transfer of complex board shapes with cutouts; bi-directional transfer of placed components as 3D models; MCAD to ECAD transfer of native components; and support for rigid-flex PCBs. Today's sophisticated electronic products come in all manner of unusual shapes and sizes - designing these products demands close collaboration between the mechanical and electronic design teams throughout the development process. Helping with this is the new MCAD Co-Designer: SOLIDWORKS® extension for Altium Designer, allowing the ecad and mcad designers to directly pass design changes back and forth between Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS®. Make a change to the board shape or the positioning of a critical component in Altium Designer, then click a button to pass those changes across to your fellow designer in SOLIDWORKS. Underlying these collaboration capabilities is an ECAD-MCAD Project Collaboration Server (or Altium Vault), storing the board shape, components and the designers' comments. The Altium Designer PCB project must be stored in the Collaboration Server/Vault as a managed project for Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS to be able to collaborate on it. As well as being used to store the ecad data, the Collaboration Server/Vault also stores the shared design elements, including the board shape and an mcad model of each component. The other function of the Collaboration Server/Vault is for storing the collaboration change history. SOLIDWORKS and Altium Designer collaborate with each other through an ECAD-MCAD Project Collaboration Server (or Altium Vault), whose behind-the-scenes role is quite transparent. The designer working in each application uses the add-in has been installed for SOLIDWORKS. Changes made in either editor are Pushed into the Collaboration Server/Vault, which can then be Pulled from the Collaboration Server/Vault into the other editor. 3D component models can be passed back and forth during collaboration. On the Altium Designer side, the model must be part of the component (placed in the PCB Library editor). Free 3D models placed directly on the PCB are not supported. The following 3D model formats are supported: When a Push is performed in Altium Designer, each PCB component is saved as a Parasolid model and uploaded to the Collaboration Server/Vault. For this to occur, the 3D Body object that holds the component must be visible in the Altium Designer workspace, if it is not visible, then the component is not uploaded to the Collaboration Server/Vault. In Altium Designer, the visibility of 3D Bodies is controlled in the Show/Hide tab of the SOLIDWORKS has a broader range of drawing shapes, which can be used to define the board shape, and cutouts within the board. There is a high level of support for these shape in Altium Designer, with slot, ellipse and parabolic shapes being supported. Currently, spline and conic shapes are not fully supported, however it may be possible that the spline shape you create in SOLIDWORKS does transfer correctly to Altium Designer. Supported shapes can be used to define the board shape and/or board cutouts in SOLIDWORKS. As the board shape or a cutout, these shapes behave as regions in Altium Designer. Where possible the shape will also be editable, but this is not possible for all shapes. In Altium Designer, the project must be created as, or converted to, a managed project, which is stored in an ECAD-MCAD Project Collaboration Server, or Altium Vault. If you are creating a new project, enable the Managed Project option in the Both Altium Designer and SOLIDWORKS present potential changes using a simple animation, flashing or animating a purple shape to represent the new object / location. The animated GIF below shows an example of three component relocations being passed from SOLIDWORKS to Altium Designer. Click on a proposed change to animate it in the workspace, enable the Accept checkbox to update the design to include that change. Use the commands in the right-click menu to toggle the state of multiple checkboxes.
