If you’re sharing with something like Dropbox, everyone needs to have a compatible EDA to even view your design, and you have to muck around with privileges within your file server to make sure only the right people get access.
If you’re using screenshots, all hope is lost: nobody can zoom in; search is impossible; and good luck inspecting the attributes of anything.
Whether you’re posting a design review on a forum, communicating with your manufacturer, or just showing off: Upverter gives you the power to truly share your design with anyone on any platform. When you grant access to a group or make a design public, you’re empowering colleagues and friends to make a difference.
Designs shared on Upverter:
- Are fully searchable. You can search for any reference designator, part number, net name, or issue in the entire design and navigate directly to it.
- Are completely navigable. You can pan and zoom in on any part of either the schematic or PCB. No nasty screenshot pixels!
- Can be cross-probed. Select anything on the schematic and slam tab: you’re magically transported to the layout-side representation of your selection.
- Can evaluate design rules. If you just hand me a file from another EDA, I don’t share your constraint setup. On Upverter, anyone interacting with your design gets to see exactly the same design rule reports you see.
- Can be annotated. With the right permissions, shared designs can be marked up with our Issues Management tools. Others can highlight a region on your schematic or PCB they think is a problem and start a discussion about it – without leaving the tool!
- Can be embedded on your blog or forum. Forget screenshots or awkward links: embed the whole design right into your post, just like this: http://upverter.com/eda/embed/#designId=dc8aa1fa9dca80b9,actionId= (See our article on How to embed your design)
