A!tium designer and thermal simulations
« on: February 19, 2011, 01:27:59 pm »
Hey everyone :) Long time no post ;)
I have a question to all those that work with altium designer and perform thermal simulations of their PCB's. Is it possible to do such a thing with AD (I know PADS can) or do you use externall software? And if so can you name that software?

Thx for any answer :)

Don't know about AD, but with Cadstar we used to use Flomerics Flotherm which could accept quite a few formats and gave us really good results

AD does not have any form of thermal capability built in.
I am aware of some who export various things and use external tools, but I don't know the exact details.
