Open any EAGLE CAD file (from version 6 and above) directly on your iPhone and investigate the PCB layout and schematics with your finger. Select parts and signals, manage parts and Bill of Materials.
Copper creates 3D versions of your PCB including parts that you assign from our extensive 3D model library to your footprints. Copper then renders a photorealistic representation in real time that you can touch, rotate and move in a virtual studio. Setup lights and materials like the solder mask or the floor.
Import EAGLE files from any source like the web (just download a ZIP file with EAGLE files), from Github, your Dropbox, or send PCB files directly via Airdrop, Mail or iMessage to your iPhone or iPad.
Every file you import is kept in Coppers library. This way you can build up a nice library of PCBs and Schematics right in your pocket.
Copper is also available for the Mac and both share the same codebase and file format.
This is a iOS 11 compatibility update fixing some minor issues with iOS 11.
- Fixed a crash in 3D mode under certain conditions.
- Fixes minor issues with specific schematics or layouts
Ratings and Reviews
If you use Eagle PCB software, you need this app. It lets you see both your schematic and board on your iPhone. It also shows a BOM file which makes parts ordering a breeze. If you delete a board it only removes it from your iphone, your original file is untouched. You can view either side of a two sided board as well as an x-ray view looking through the board. And also a 3-D view of your board. Like the eyeball in Eagle you can highlight a trace or part in the schematic and it will highlight on the board. I highly recommend this app. If you have an iPad it's even better.
Love the idea, but too many issues
This app is exactly what I was ever looking for. Review boards on the go on my iPad.
It works ok, but it still seems to be in beta stage. Too many issues. Silkscreen elements look completely different on the app compared to Eagle/Gerber/production. Which makes it useless for review.
Multiple inner layer nets are not displayed on a 4-layer board.
3D view is nice, but the part mapping for a comprehensive 3D view is not sufficient. All the boards I work with have “special” parts which are not available for 3D view. Too basic for any professional/serious use.
Again, I wish it were what it should be, but for now I would see it as a free teaser. But I paid for it and hope future updates makes it what it should be.
This works really well
I found this app to be a really pleasant surprise. It’s slick, fast, and just works. It makes reviewing eagle board files hundreds of times easier than pdf.
This is actually far easier to use for view board data than eagle itself.
