Import Conductors data

Import Conductors data

I am using Creo Parametric - Release 7.0 (connected) Release 7.0 and Datecode7.0.4.0

Which EDA vendors can provide .eda files for "Import Conductors data"?
https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article/cs251196
This format seems unknown by all of them.
Can Zuken CR8000 data be converted to .eda format? How?

This is the PTC Support provided solution:

The following is import conductor into Creo workflow:
1. Use ECAD software to save a copy to baseline idx.
2. load native ECAD file into Creo View ECAD, then save to PVZ file, unzip pvz and then get eda file
3. Import baseline idx into Creo Parametric, it will get an ECAD assembly file
4. Import conductors into ECAD assembly file by eda file.
By the way, Import conductor tool is available in ECAD assembly mode only, not provided in regular assembly.
That means, to use Import conductor, users need ECAD MCAD Collaboration license.

Hi,

please ask PTC Support.

.eda is a PTC file format. I am not aware of any EDA design tool that will export a .eda file. You need to have Creo View ECAD to use this.

 

Creo View ECAD adapters has tools to convert an EDA design to an intermediate file format (IFF) and then to the .eda file format.

 

See feature comparison here:
