The 3D circuit board model converter is a specialized module used to import a 3D circuit board model, designed in systems like P-CAD and Altium Designer (also named Protel in the past). The converter can read the standardized data exchange IDF format in KOMPAS-3D. The converter works with IDF-files exported from P-CAD (v. 2000-2006), OrCAD (v. 9.X), and Altium Designer.
Once imported into KOMPAS-3D, the 3D models of printed circuit boards are then used to arrange other devices, blocks, equipment modules, and so on.
If necessary, all the components of the board’s assembly model can be accompanied by BOM (bills of material) items. This form of circuit board BOM is generated directly from 3D models of assemblies.
