While the loads of data pasting capabilities of the schematic symbol wizard gave users something to cheer about, the rookie of the year in SOLIDWORKS PCB 2018 turned out to be the IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard. This thing has some fancy footwork! It’s fast feet can get your library in shape for the big show and is a huge help in library buildup as it renders your footprints while also building a 3D model all in one wizard!

Watch how the IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard guides us step by step as we build up a footprint for our PCB layouts, while also building and previewing the 3D body!
