Now you can view your PCB complete with shadows, reflective surfaces, 3D copper and even see the solder.
AutoTRAX comes with many parametric parts. A parametric part is a part than can automatically generate a 2D footprint/land pattern and a matching 3D model. All from a few simple parameters. So instead of having a library of 100's of variants of a package type, you simply and quickly generate your parts.
This video shows you how you can move your parts on a PCB using the 3-D viewport.
This video shows you how to import a 3-D model from an external source iinto AutoTRAX. The part is also modified and the materials changed to give a more realistic appearance.
This video shows a comparison of rendering a 3D PCB with and without real-time shadows and reflective surfaces.
This video shows you how you can set the material texture for 3-D parts that you import into AutoTRAX. It also shows you how to modify the characteristics of the imported material to effectively have the equivalent of thousands of different textures.
This video show the header produced by AutoTRAX/Active3D.
You can view your PCB in fully interactive 3D. AutoTRAX will even generate the 3D model of your parts and the PCB automatically.
You can make your PCB semi-transparent and even separate the layers so you can see the internal structure of your PCB.
When viewing a PCB is 3D you can make the layers of the PCB semi-transparent and increase the visual seperation of the layers so can easily see the internal struture of your PCB.
This shows you how to add 3D content to a PCB or part in AutoTRAX. It also show you how to move and rotate objects.
