ECAD-MCAD Collaboration: Need support in importing Via holes in Creo from IDX file.

ECAD-MCAD Collaboration: Need support in importing Via holes in Creo from IDX file.

Hello All,

We are using ECAD-MCAD collaboration at our company where we use Creo 3.0 for MCAD and and Mentor for ECAD. Copper information on vias, copper pads, planes and traces are supported on the Mentor side, however it is not supported on PTC within IDX. This is very much needed feature to bring holes in MCAD so that it can be used for editing or creating new features in Creo and also to make them visible on drawings. 

Request you all to review this Idea and vote accordingly. 

 

Thanks in advance..

 

Regards,

Ravindra Mane
