Simple online ECAD to MCAD file conversion

Upload files from your Electrical CAD system and view them online in 3D for free.
Add detailed 3D component models and download files to use in your Mechanical CAD tool.

Import from ECAD

Import ECAD files from popular Electrical CAD Systems like Cadence Allegro, Mentor PADS, Mentor Xpedition, Autodesk Eagle and many more. Ecad.io can read IPC2581 files, native Autodesk Eagle files (from v6 onwards), and the common IDF 2.0 and IDF 3.0 ECAD-MCAD interchange formats.

Preview & Edit

Preview and explore your Circuit Board online in 3D for free. Locate components and keep-in/keep-out areas. Delete unwanted items and replace simple component shapes with detailed 3D component models from our Library, or upload your own.

Export to MCAD

Download your 3D board model as a STEP file to use with Mechanical CAD systems like Inventor or SolidWorks. Send it to Autodesk Fusion 360, Autodesk A360 or cloud storage like Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. Use your 3D model to check for interference, for thermal analysis, or just to create a detailed model of your finished product.
