E3.3D Routing Bridge

++E3.series 3D routing bridgeTo help strive for right-first-time design and to support full digital mock-ups Zuken have developed links between E3.series and all major MCAD vendors, Using the E3.3D Routing Bridge, schematic and connection information from E3.series can be interfaced to all major MCAD systems. Collaborating between E3.series and your chosen MCAD tool allows concurrent design. Mechanical engineers and electrical engineers can work independently or collaboratively.


  • ++E3.series 3D routing bridge Transfer component information to MCAD (connectors, pins, splices)
  • Transfer to-from data to MCAD (inc’ gauge, colour, type)
  • Check for clash detection in MCAD
  • Check for bend radius
  • Calculate length of wires and segments in MCAD
  • Transfer lengths and segments back to E3.series
  • Automatic creation of manufacturing documentation in E3.formboard (dependant on MCAD system)
