If you need to import an electronic design from production files (Gerbers, drills, ipc-356 test point netlist) to any MCAD, you can use ZofzPCB.com’s new feature: STEP file export.

ZofzPCB loads Gerber files automatically, converts the board outline drawing into the bare PCB solid and PCB tracks into optimally constructed faces. Using IPC-356 bare board test point file, ZofzPCB can recreate footprint information and, with a very little help of the user, construct component 3D models, on the fly. The resulting STEP AP214 file is constructed as an assembly tree, containing additional information like component designators and, if a BOM file is also loaded, component names/values.STEP file export was the most often requested feature, by ZofzPCB users, it has now been implemented.

3D model of an assembled PCB, created by ZofzPCB, can be saved as a STEP AP214 file and loaded into any MCAD. ZofzPCB provides two distinct features.

The program is available now at: www.zofzpcb.com
