Hi

I bought this linker to Solidworks and am happy with the improved interface with our mechanical engineer. I can make a board outline in Protel with connectors and perhaps some large components. There is a Solidworks 3D drawing file for each footprint.. The linker creates a Solidworks representation of the board which can be edited for mechanical considerations and the changes passed back to P99. One or two such iterations usually suffice. Desktop EDA also have a linker to Autocad and DXP versions of both.

DXP does support this

Subject: [PEDA] Height limit on PCB, Protel 99SE sdk and more


Hi,


We often several areas on PCB where component height is limited.   Currently
Protel 99SE doesn't support this feature (I don't know DXP).  I have to look
back into the component's data sheet frequently. To make things easier, a
solution is to put the height info into schematic symbol( one of library
fields).  You may understand it is still a pain.  I am thinking to develop a
server to help me in automatically gather the height info in schematic, then
generate component classes by height and the height limits of PCB areas,
generate DRC rules.

Is there anybody familiar to  develop Protel Server here?   I need Protel
SDK for Protel 99SE, and I need somebody's help in doing the programming.
Maybe we can start the first open-source programming from here.

Thanks.

Jun Gong
