OrCAD Documentation Editor

Automating the documentation process

Intelligently automates your documentation creation process to produce complex PCB documentation

OrCAD™ Documentation Editor is a PCB documentation-authoring tool that intelligently automates your documentation creation process to produce complex PCB documentation in a fraction of the time versus traditional methods. Developed in the style and use-model of Windows desktop applications, OrCAD Documentation Editor enables you to quickly create the manufacturing drawings that drive PCB fabrication and assembly.

OrCAD Documentation Editor benefits

  • Intuitive Windows desktop application-style use-models and methods increase productivity and ease of creation for PCB documentation
  • Tight integration with OrCAD PCB Editor enables simple click-through passing of design data to expedite the drawing creation process
  • Intelligent automation saves hours, if not days, creating PCB drawings for fabrication, assembly, and inspection
  • Eliminates manual drawing of tedious document elements by automatically creating component assembly views, drill pattern view, details, and parts lists derived from the OrCAD PCB CAD data
  • Design changes made in OrCAD PCB Editor are automatically propagated to all effected drawing elements, dramatically reducing time spent updating documentation due to the design changes

PCB Documentation made easy

Unlimited PCB Views: Create and place unlimited views of the PCB. Each view may have its own display settings and may be formatted independently of the source data.
Drawing Creation: Draw elements by simply dragging and dropping from a tools pallet menu without a limitation on the number of elements that can be placed on a drawing.
Fabrication & Assembly Drawing: Support for constructing fabrication and assembly panel views. Drawing-detail wizards automate the layer stack-up, finger chamfer, and V-score drawing.
Mechanical Component Support: Define any drawing item as a mechanical component through a number of different ways and re-use them as needed in future designs.
Design Driven Documentation: Import CAD data to drive the documentation creation process, while additional external content may be imported and incorporated in the drawings.
ECOs: Perform engineering change orders (ECOs) by refreshing only the source CAD data, as all drawing elements remain linked

Design-driven documentation

OrCAD Documentation Editor drawing content is derived directly from the OrCAD PCB CAD data. Components, pins, assembly mounting sides, layers, vias, nets, assembly variants, part attributes, drill holes and symbols, and other critical design data are imported to ensure document accuracy. External content such as JPEGs, BMPs, GIFs, and TIFFs may be imported and incorporated in the drawings. OLE objects, audio, and video files can also be imported and linked within the documentation and stored with the documentation release package. In addition, Gerber and DXF files can be imported and exported.
