Bringing MCAD Enclosure to ECAD (STD users)
Assuming the board was already pushed and pulled, and the PCB has already been placed in the assembly of the device in the MCAD system.
After moving the enclosure model to the PCB assembly in the MCAD model tree, it is necessary to switch to the board assembly which has been pulled with the MCAD CoDesigner plugin.
If necessary, rebuild the assembly to ensure that the enclosure model appears in the assembly.
When you have everything you want to include in the assembly, click Push to transfer the data to the electrical engineer.
Do not keep the enclosure model in the assembly of the PCB. Must switch back to the whole device assembly and return the case model to its original state, excluding it from the PCB assembly.
Then the electrical engineer will see a notification about new changes in the MCAD CoDesigner panel in Altium Designer. Click Pull to see the list of changes.
Click on each line to preview the enclosure placement and accept the changes.
The model is placed in the way it was pushed by a mechanical engineer, and now an electrical engineer can continue their work on this model.
