3D PCB Tutorial Videos
Below you will find a collection of 3D PCB Tutorial Videos showing you how to get the best out of AutoTRAX’s powerful 3D capabilities.
The 3D PCB Tutorial Videos below are designed so that you can get the best out of AutoTRAX when it comes to 3D parts and 3D PCB visualization. These 3D PCB Tutorial Videos are designed to help and are not infomercials.
AutoTRAX comes with many parametric parts. A parametric part is a part than can automatically generate a 2D footprint/land pattern and a matching 3D model. All from a few simple parameters. So instead of having a library of 100’s of variants of a package type, you simply and quickly generate your parts.
Most Widely Adopted Graphics Standard
OpenGL is the premier environment for developing portable, interactive 2D and 3D graphics applications. Since its introduction in 1992, OpenGL has become the industry's most widely used and supported 2D and 3D graphics application programming interface (API), bringing thousands of applications to a wide variety of computer platforms. OpenGL fosters innovation and speeds application development by incorporating a broad set of rendering, texture mapping, special effects, and other powerful visualization functions. AutoTRAX leverages the power of OpenGL across all popular desktop and workstation platforms, ensuring wide application deployment.
High Visual Quality and Performance
Any visual computing application requiring maximum performance-from 3D animation to CAD to visual simulation-can exploit high-quality, high-performance OpenGL capabilities. These capabilities allows AutoTRAX to produce and display incredibly compelling 2D and 3D graphics.
An independent consortium, the OpenGL Architecture Review Board, guides the OpenGL specification. With broad industry support, OpenGL is the only truly open, vendor-neutral, multiplatform graphics standard.
OpenGL implementations have been available for more than seven years on a wide variety of platforms. Additions to the specification are well controlled, and proposed updates are announced in time for developers to adopt changes. Backward compatibility requirements ensure that existing applications do not become obsolete.
Reliable and portable
AutoTRAX produce consistent visual display results on any OpenGL API-compliant hardware, regardless of operating system or windowing system.
Because of its thorough and forward-looking design, OpenGL allows new hardware innovations to be accessible through the API via the OpenGL extension mechanism. In this way, innovations appear in the API in a timely fashion, letting application developers and hardware vendors incorporate new features into their normal product release cycles.
OpenGL API-based applications can run on systems ranging from consumer electronics to PCs, workstations, and supercomputers. As a result, AutoTRAX can scale to any class of machine that you use.
