The application was developed with the purpose of simplifying the task of inspecting circuit boards as their components have reduced in size considerably. Even though it was developed for electronics industry the application can be used in other industries as well.

Name: DXF Overlay | Art. no.: 306008
DXF Overlay allows you to inspect a sample using a DXF file as an overlay. By simply adding the file and using it as an overlay on top of the sample, you can easily see the sample and the drawing file live on the screen. One of the greatest feature of the app is the search bar that can be used to search for specific parts in the sample. This enables the user to easily find the component that could be faulty or needs a more thorough inspection.
The app was developed for inspecting PCBs due to the miniaturization of components in the industry, but can have many other uses in different industries. In agriculture, for example the DXF app can be used to validate sizes of seeds.
DXF is an abbreviation of Drawing eXchange Format and is a file extension for a graphic image format. This format is typically used with AutoCAD (Computer Aided Design) software.
How to save an DXF file?
For best user experience with the DXF Overlay app, we recommend exporting DXF files directly from CAD data when possible. It is also recommended to only export the template you want to use as an overlay and to exclude drawing headers, production specifications, etc from the export. It is not recommended to export DXF files from Gerber/CAM data as these are likely to be all vector based. This will increase the import and rendering time and prevent the app from performing a text search. In order for the DXF Overlay to follow the magnification levels of the microscope, the DXF file has to be in scale 1:1.
