PCBCAD51 full pcbcad design package plus simple XNA and direct x 3d rendering modules.

PCBCAD720 full pcbcad package without 3d rendering modules but has very fast screen redraw.

PCBCAD360 full pcbcad package without 3d rendering modules but uses C++ for very fast screen redraw.

Hi Nigel,

Received the download and security key. Thank you. I have not initiated download yet due info in post 23.

Referring to Post 23 and reading information from the website it is quoted:

" 3D PCB viewer module. (not PCBCAD360)" , brings questions:

1. So, is it included with the pcbcad720 version, or do you need the pcbcad51 for 3D rendering of the pcb.?

2. Also, is the 3D viewer like the ones you see for populated pcb's so it gives the builder an idea of what the pcb looks like with components installed.?

3. Based on your answers on the above, if I wanted the 3D capability, could you supply another download/security key for the 51 package, since I have paid for the 720 package already, but have not downloaded it.

Thanks for the help with this, confusing for a newbie trying to find his way.

MM

You don't need 3d rendering in PCBCAD720.
The 3d viewer is very basic just a 3d representation of the pcb using grpahic shapes.
I rarely use the 3d viewers, the 2d pcb component outlines how the limits of the components anyway.
Regards Nigel

Hi all,

Can any of the buyers give some initial feedback of how they have perceived the software? I am looking for a software with not to steep learning curve,


All the best Wino
