Rubius has developed a CAD integration plugin that saves up to 70% of the design time.
For PCB designers, complicated data transfer between ECAD (used to design boards) and MCAD (used to model enclosures) can be a real pain in the neck. To check the compatibility of the board and its enclosure, engineers have to convert 3D models into an intermediate format and exchange files and comments with each other. With every geometry update, they have to do it again. As a result, model verification can take up to 70% of the design time.
Rubius integration plugin transfers data directly between ECAD and MCAD, and allows PCB and enclosure designers to work on one product at the same time. Read more about the project at the link.
