For creating virtual prototype design by PCB design engineers, element14 has brought the EagleUp 3D design converter in 3D world.
The ground-up developed the EAGLE design community for enable to export 2D layout and make perfect 3D prototype simulations in Google SketchUp from cadsoft’s EAGLE PCB designing software. As a slimmer & energetic electronic device, modern PCBs have used to be mapped with accuracy in design processing season. By creating a realistic model of PCB, the one-click send overseas EagleUp’s characteristic speeds-up PCB model. It can be strictly examined for any type of modification and 100% accuracy, which proved really precious.
According to Jerome Lamy, the developer of EagleUp converter, CadSoft Eagle users can simulate the viability of their SketchUp models, much earlier the production process. And also the realistic rendering makes for marketing material before the users has the real product available for demo. The three dimensions model allows the creators to merge multiple boards in the same model to check out the misalign connectors & collisions of long components. The creating models can be used to weigh up airflow around the devices. The designers also convert mechanical designs from IGES & STEP available on the websites of manufacturer.
If needed, then the final SketchUp design can be export to other MCAD tools in STEP format. In user language program, EagleUp is converted in EAGLE ULP for customizing to specific design needs. The EAGLE ULP scripting language is in c-type syntax & access the all information about the layout. The built-in Ruby script is used to write the plugin in SketchUp.
The users can downloaded all the essential tools for EagleUp in free of cost for Mac OS platforms and Windows. The EagleUp webpage services as a warehouse for the most using electronic components. All versons of CadSoft’s EAGLE PCB design software contain Designlink. It also available from element14, bringing web 2.0 to engineers with more of ten thousands technical data and software tools.
