Numerical Innovations (NI) today announced its official release of ACE 2D/3D Translator Version 8.3.0 (64-bit).

ACE 2D/3D Translator is a "Full-Featured" CAD Software solution that will easily convert between ALL common EDA and CAD formats: DXF, Gerber, GDS-II, DWG, Postscript, PDF, HPGL, NC Drill/Rout, OASIS, Image files, ODB++, IPC-2581, SVG, and 3D formats STEP, STL.

The software allows users to convert CAD formats in just 4 STEPS! In addition, ACE has a friendly and modern GUI which drastically reduces the learning curve. Most users are able to successfully convert their first files in less than 5 minutes.

“ACE 2D/3D Translator is such a powerful CAD Conversion software solution – packed with Value and for a fraction of the price, when compared to other tools” states Miranda Yip, Chief Sales Officer of Numerical Innovations.  “We are especially excited about the new and improved 3D Step, IPC-2581 and SVG export features!” mentions Yip.

ACE 2D/3D Translator is for designers of PCB’s, Microwave and RF circuits, as well as laser cutting and Inkjet printing manufacturers.

Listed below, are a few of the new features on V8 of ACE 2D/3D Translator:

  • 3D Step Export. Extremely optimized B-Reps curves detection to minimize outputted STEP file size. 
  • New Export as Wireframe. Extremely fast and useful for reference in various 3D Software tools.
  • IPC-2581 Export. New option to export compressed files (*.tgz, *.zip)
  • SVG Export. Easily output optimized SVG files which can be useful for hundreds of purposes.
  • Full support for Flex and Rigid-Flex Designs. Includes new Layer Subtypes, Stackup Zones & more.
  • Open/Save Numerical Workspace files (*.wrk). 100% compatible with FAB 3000 and
  • Align Layers in ACE Editor (menu: Edit | Align Layers). Easily Align any input data before export.

Many Fortune 500 companies trust ACE 2D/3D Translator for their critical designs, including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Intel, and AMD, to name a few.  There are many customer testimonials listed on the ACE page at the NI website.

PCB Designers Are Really Product Designers

02/09/2023 | Zachariah Peterson, NWES
As I look back on 2022, I’m realizing that my company plays multiple roles in client projects beyond just designing circuits and PCBs. Sure, we’re primarily a PCB design company, but we also help with things that happen outside the PCB. This includes tasks like enclosure design, defining mechanical constraints, simulating electrical behavior, mating boards into larger assemblies, selecting cabling, and defining test requirements, all of which slowly creep into the standard scope of work for design projects.

Polar Instruments: Simulating PCB Potentialities

12/08/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson checks in with Polar’s Martyn Gaudion on the evolving needs of global PCB manufacturing markets in a post-pandemic world, where generating accurate PCB specification documentation is essential to successfully navigating today's rampant supply chain constraints. Polar has positioned itself to meet these needs through agile software product developments that allow OEMs and fabricators to simulate material interactions and end-product specifications, including in-demand features like a comprehensive "structure view" that allows users to visualize all the transmission lines on a given a PCB. Though keeping pace with the demands of a rapidly growing industry has been challenging, Polar's commitment to innovation has kept its software suite ahead of the curve.
