1 Solid Edge IDF 3D Modeler This allows you to add electronics assemblies designed in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) CAD packages to your Solid Edge assembly. It uses the IDF standard which is supported by most PCB CAD packages.

2 How Does it Work? Creates a Solid Edge assembly from IDF files Creates IDF files from a Solid Edge assembly

3 ECAD Packages Supported Mentor Cadence Pads P-CAD Protel ORCAD Veribest Any that supports IDF

4 When these toolbar buttons are added to Assembly

5 Creating An Assembly from IDF Files Use the Import IDF toolbar button The IDF Import dialog box displays…

6 Import Tab IDF Board File IDF Library File Assembly Directory

7 Settings Tab Color settings for auto created parts Edit IDF part heights Directory for Solid Edge parts

8 Options Tab Select IDF Features to Import Select PCB hole types to Import

9 Select Parts Tab If any boxes checked, only selected parts are imported

10 Feature Names Tab

11 Status Tab

12 Board Tab View the IDF Board file

13 Library Tab View the IDF Library file

14 Choose the Create Assembly button on the import tab …

15 Parts from Library Part for PCB is automatically created

16 Non Plated Holes Plated Holes

17 If no library parts are available, the program automatically creates parts

18 Top Parts Bottom Parts Printed Circuit Board Part

19 Creating IDF Files from An Assembly Use the Export IDF toolbar button The IDF Export dialog box displays…

20 Choose target ECAD system Choose IDF units Choose IDF version Set name of IDF files

21 Export searches for Parts by their name in the Edge Bar to get PCB geometry Export uses Part Edge Bar name to create IDF file entries To get part geometry, Export uses known feature names in Parts if present, otherwise uses the bounding cube

22 Starting a New PCB Design in Solid Edge Use the New ECAD Assembly toolbar button Creates a “template” assembly with all features appropriately named ready for Export The user modifies this Assembly as required

23 Features with correct names ready to modify Top and bottom template parts – copy and rename to create more parts

24 Full IDF Support Top Place Outline Bottom Place Outline Place Keepout

25 Solid Edge IDF 3D Modeler Features Supports IDF versions 2 and 3 Supports top and bottom placed parts Bi-directional Supplied with electronics parts library Automatically creates parts if no library parts available Fully supports the IDF Specification – route outlines, keep-outs etc.
