In traditional engineering design processes, electrical and mechanical design workflows have often been separate from each other. This has mainly been down to the tool sets used to create these designs.
The Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection changes all of this. It comes packed with tools that make collaboration between electrical and mechanical teams simple and easy. Check out the video below highlighting the electro mechanical workflow with Inventor and AutoCAD Electrical.
Inventor can also import IDF files from popular PCB design tools such as Autodesk Eagle, allowing users to check clearances between mechanical and electronic components.
