PCB converter module for Google SketchUp provides 3D eCAD tools
PCB Converter for SketchUp can be downloaded free from the DesignSpark SparkStore at www.designspark.com, from the RS website or from the plug-ins area on the Google SketchUp website. Electronics engineers are able to export their PCB designs into Google SketchUp to assess their compatibility with the mechanical constraints of enclosures and mounts. This allows them to make design decisions immediately, and avoids the need for redesign requests and design reviews. Users can then incorporate 3D models of popular electromechanical components to complete their design. CAD models of products in the RS product range can be downloaded from its website in SketchUp compliant format (*.skp) and used in the tool.
