When creating a PCB design, many designers are now using 3D models of their components in the process. Although the PCB design is created in 2D, designers are often looking at the design of the whole product rather than just their portion of the design—turning to the usefulness of 3D models for verification and accuracy purposes. Accuracy is key when designing a board and with the advance of technology, design requirements are becoming tighter and more stringent than ever. 3D models can add security and peace of mind that the board design is going to be functional before ever making it to the manufacturing floor.
