PCB SolidWorks 3D modeling

This is actually work from a while ago – but I wanted to share this. I’ve been working on a new version of the Power Monitor PCB that uses an ESP8266 and Teensy 3.2. Here’s the board mocked up in SolidWorks CircuitWorks:

And here’s the board in real life, with only a couple of components on it:

Pretty neat, right?  You can spend as much time as you want in SolidWorks CircuitWorks to get everything as photo-realistic as possible. The important thing is to get component heights, sizes, and locations right to make the design of an enclosure easier.
