Does anyone having experience with integrating PADS and CATIA?

Either by IDF, Step or by using the ECAD<>MCAD Collaborator?


We are currently using IDF format for sending data from PADS to CATIA, however there are several issues with this.

We have also started using step files, however despite it has several advantages compared to IDF, it is very slow and cumbersome to handle boards in CATIA.

We are wondering how others are exchanging data with CATIA - and what is their experience?

Especially if you have experience with ECAD<>MCAD Collaborator from PADS to CATIA.
