SolidWorks IDF 3D Modeler

This allows you to add electronics assemblies designed in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) CAD packages to your SolidWorks assembly.

It uses the IDF standard which is supported by most PCB CAD packages.


How does it work

Creates a SolidWorks assembly from IDF files

Creates IDF files from a SolidWorks assembly

How Does it Work?



Creating an assembly from idf files
Creating An Assembly from IDF SolidWorks File menuFiles

  • Use the Import IDF command in the File menu

  • The IDF Import dialog box displays…


IDF Board File SolidWorks File menu

IDF Library File

Assembly Directory


Directory for SolidWorks parts SolidWorks File menu

Review IDF part heights

Color settings for auto created parts


Part for PCB is automatically created SolidWorks File menu

Parts from Library


Non Plated Holes SolidWorks File menu

Configuration showing PCB without Parts

Plated Holes



Top Parts creates parts

Printed Circuit Board Part

Bottom Parts


Creating idf files from an assembly
Creating IDF Files from An Assembly creates parts

  • Use the Export IDF command in the File menu

  • The IDF Export dialog box displays…


Set name of IDF files creates parts

Choose target ECAD system

Choose IDF version

Choose IDF units


Export searches for features by name to get PCB geometry creates parts

Export uses Part feature name to create IDF file entries

To get part geometry, Export uses known feature names in Parts if present, otherwise uses the bounding cube


Starting a new pcb assembly in solidworks
Starting a New PCB Assembly in SolidWorks creates parts

  • Use the New ECAD Assembly command in the File menu

  • Creates a “template” assembly with all features appropriately named ready for Export

  • The user modifies this assembly as required


Features with correct names ready to modify creates parts

Top and bottom template parts – copy and rename to create more parts


Solidworks idf 3d modeler features
SolidWorks IDF 3D Modeler Features creates parts

  • Supports IDF versions 2 and 3

  • Supports top and bottom placed parts

  • Bi-directional

  • Supplied with electronics parts library

  • Automatically creates parts if no library parts available

  • Fully supports the IDF Specification – route outlines, keep-outs etc.
