Connect your Altium Designer to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

pe4 Altium Connector to 3DEXPERIENCE

The pe4 Altium Connector to 3DEXPERIENCE enables you to connect the Altium Designer platform to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and to publish ECAD design information and manufacturing data into the corporate system for making your development process efficient and consistent.
Information driven through the connector is available to the different stakeholders in the company like supply chain, procurement manufacturing or even sales, allowing them to make the right decisions based on the actual and correct information.

Design Data Management

The Design Data Management functionality of the connector allows hardware engineers to manage schematic and layout data side by side with additional non-innovation data like plots, manufacturing outputs or documentation in 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Functionality at a glance:
  • Release full design projects to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and maintain the interal RCS repository for later collaboration
  • Save schematic and layout innovation data under process and access control of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Automatic execution of Altium OutputJobs for the management of additional data like pdf plots, manufacturing data or instruction documents together with the design documents
  • PLM collaboration with the engineering team or other stakeholders through team workspaces and projects
  • Version and revision control of the Altium Designer engineering data
  • Support of access and process control provided through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Access design data managed in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform directly through the CAD Tool

BOM Management

The BOM Management functionality of the connector allows hardware engineers to manage the electronic bill of material in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and even transfer early and preliminary bill of materials to the corporate system.

Functionality at a glance:
  • Staging view of the BOM before transfer to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to allow modification
  • Communicate BOMs even for early collaboration with other stakeholders
  • Verification of used parts in the design with status in 3DEXPERIENCE platform for early conflict verification
  • Replace corporate engineering parts with other corporate or vendor parts from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
  • Variant Support for Variant specific Bill of Materials
  • BOM scrubbing (e.g. removal of testpoints)and import of external partlist e.g. from a comma separated file
