IDF Modeler

IDF Modeler

Circuit Boards (PCB) are typically designed using specialized PCB design tools such as PADS or Altium Designer. These are inherently two dimensional and incompatible with 3D CAD systems. The IDF standard allows for collaboration between electronics and Mechanical designers.

The Autodesk® Inventor® IDF Modeler uses the IDF standard to create PCB assemblies in Inventor. Creating a PCB assembly and placing it into the product assembly allows designers to identify mechanical design errors early in the design process when they can be easily corrected.

The IDF Modeler also allows users to make design changes to the PCB in Inventor, create new IDF files and automatically communicate those changes back to the PCB design system.

The Inventor IDF Modeler has been tested with Allegro, Altium Designer, Mentor, ORCAD, PADS, and Zuken. The product includes an option for PADS users to read/write PADS ASCII files to/from an Inventor assembly, bypassing the need for the PADS IDF Link.
