Under Review: EAGLE and DipTrace PCB Design Tools for 3D Previews (.PDF Download)

Dec. 10, 2015

This article takes a look at how to get a 3D preview of a printed-circuit-board (PCB) project designed using mid-level PCB design tools, such as EAGLE and DipTrace. It also discusses how to integrate these EDA systems with mechanical CAD software. I will try to describe both software packages “as is,” and avoid any conclusions...
