Board Modeler Lite is a unique, stand-alone solution that bridges the gap between electronic and mechanical design. It is the most effective design review tool available, displaying both electronic and mechanical information in a single environment. Board Modeler Lite reduces iterations between departments, decreases duplication of effort, and provides greater accuracy.
Malvern Panalytical (formerly Malvern Instruments) have avoided costly mistakes and ensure the electronics fit the space constraints available by using Board Modeler Lite in conjunction with CADSTAR PCB design and their 3D mechanical software.
« Our latest project included more than 20 PCBs, all of which fitted first time. The ability to fully characterise the 3D board with accurate models, plus the ability to check for and resolve clearance errors, helps us produce better documentation for test and assembly, and most importantly ensures we get easily manufacturable products in a shorter time. We also find that Board Modeler Lite is very useful as a design tool. It allows us to try multiple design ideas and develop virtual prototypes so that we can see what will and won’t work before they go to manufacture – which obviously reduces our costs.”

We are a science based company, where electronics plays a supporting role to the physical domain. One of our customer’s requirements is to reduce Cost per Bench Space so the footprint of the finished product is critical, meaning we have to fit the boards in any available space.
