Collaboration on PCB Design

MECODES with CATIA V5 and Cadence Allegro

This is a virtual representation of a robot Poppy created in CATIA. MCAD engineer will use MECODES software suite for CATIA to collaborate with ECAD engineer using Cadence Allegro.

Arduino PCB is already placed on top of robot’s head. MCAD engineer sends a baseline file describing entire PCB design structure, so ECAD engineer can simultaneously work on the PCB design. ECAD engineer will now import baseline to an empty project in Allegro. The state of a PCB design in CATIA is now synchronized with the state in Allegro. ECAD engineer can now makes changes to his Arduino PCB project and proposes them to MCAD engineer.A proposal file is now being sent to the exchange folder MCAD engineer recieves the proposal file containing changes made on ECAD side.

All changes satisfy design from mechanical perspective, therefore MCAD engineer accepts all changes and sends a response file. ECAD engineer is now aware the changes are accepted. Further collaboration can continue.
