NEXTRA 3D Package Suite
NEXTRA 3D package suite consists of severel tools, which enable to define and process 3D geometries, that are used as electronical components in NEXTRA. Component families can be created and managed by parameter arrays in a SQL database. The housing and connector pins can be created and saved separately. A total body is composed of the housing and the corresponding numbers of pins. Using this assembling technique component families with different numbers of pins per housing can be created in a short time.
3D package suite comes with many import and export interfaces of mechanical 3D formats for an efficient processing of the design models. Detailed 3D models of electrical components are used with other components or mechanical housings for the collision test. Another application is the visual representation of the circuit board with realistic components for product presentations.
