The Pulsonix 10.5 release includes new 3D viewing options for component and enclosure transparency, lighting, and clash markers, and component-to-component distance measurements. Users fix problems in the 3D environment by repositioning objects in single-axis movements, making it very easy to move components while also maintaining proper alignment with the board and other components. Beyond fixing problems, the new 3D exploded view enables users to visually inspect the via structures and copper of internal layers of multi-layer PCBs. Finally, for precise and intuitive view positioning, Pulsonix now supports a 3D SpaceMouse, allowing users to rotate and zoom the view simultaneously with one hand, while the other uses the mouse to make component positional changes. Also new for the 10.5 release is the ability to define constraint rules by area in the schematic around components and nets, and then propagate those rules to the PCB environment. Users can also gain improved control with the ability to turn on or off individual rules, seeing which rules are being violated in a single table view, spreadsheet style filtering of rules, and other convenience features. Track impedance tooltips now make it fast and easy to see the impedance, capacitance, inductance, and propagation delay for any track on the PCB. The tool features a new bus connection and multi-net routing capability in its schematic editor, as well as new dynamic copper pour improvements, thermal spoke additions, tab routing options in Panel Editor, better layer stackup visualization, and more.
