Humair Mandavia is a Seniior Technical Marketing Manager at Zuken focusing on Package and system level design. He recently wrote a piece on the Zuken blog page (click on the box on the right to see the entire blog) talking about components and connectors models. He describes his light bulb moment as follows:
"That’s when the light bulb came on. We opened the 3D Model Wizard within Board Modeler and were able to take the dimensions from the datasheet, and then use the values to automatically create 3D parts for the missing components on our design. We spent only 15 minutes characterizing 10 unique packages, and created the models within seconds."
Thinking about a problem in a different way is often the solution to a problem that at first seems daunting.
