Starting with In Creo Parametric 8, you can create, edit, import, and collaborate on ECAD cuts and slots.
A slot is a specific type of ECAD cut with an attribute to identify it as a slot. Slots are imported as a separate cut feature along with attributes that identify them as ECAD Slots.
You can import and export ECAD cuts and slots with an IDX file (EDMD version 3 and above) when they have an ECAD MCAD ID. Changes to a cut or a slot (such as add, move, and delete) are fully supported.
Changes to a cut or a slot (such as add, move, and delete) are fully supported in ECAD-MCAD collaboration (getting, proposing, and sending changes).
Tips : Cuts and slots without an ECAD_MCAD_CREATION_ID_STRING parameter are imported and exported as part of the board outline.
Note, the following are the limitations –
- The hole filtering out functionality on import is not applicable for slots.
- An imported slot cannot be converted to a hole or a cut.
