  • Confirming board fit with STP model of mechanical enclosure?

    Hi, I've got a board that unfortunately I do not have the board layout file that was done by the mechanical designer. I have the STP file of the enclosure, and have already made one prototype round of the boards. Of course, some of the mounting hole are 1mm off and .3mm too small.

    How do you import the STP file and confirm the fit and placement of your board using Altium Designer? Is that possible?

    You can create a footprint using the STP model as a body and place the footprint on the board.

      Thanks. I looked at this a bit more, and Altium likes for you to Place >> 3D Body. You can do this without a footprint (though a footprint would work too).

      Here is their write-up on this.
