How to export MCAD data from CR-8000 Design Force

Tech Tip: How to export MCAD data from CR-8000 Design Force to enable faster thermal simulation in ANSYS Icepak


This video demonstrates how you can export a STEP file from CR-8000 Design Force including automatically editing your package shape and deformation spec to reduce heat transfer and fluid flow simulation time in ANSYS Icepak. Changing the micro-bumps in the detailed model using an octagonal shape and simplifying the grid pattern (size) will reduce the meshing and calculation time without sacrificing accuracy, leading to faster thermal simulation.
