Mecadtron is an enterprise that has specialized in 3D integration of mechanical and elctronical CAD data. Original data can be imported directely from a variety of CAD tools and can be displayed in a shared view. For cross section optimisation it is possible to make collision checks in 3D Nextra view between the imported date records. For generating flexible and rigid-flex printed circuit boards it can be run circuit paths, placed componants in the NEXTRA 3D mechanic environment and the processing finally exported as two-dimensional data to the eCAD system. To define clearance and creapage distances the shortest paths can be calculated in the three-dimensional environment from one object to another through the air or along the surfaces.
Alternatively the shared date can also be issued as STEP file.
