Ok so I found a good tutorial and printed it out and now i can't find the URL. But the short hand:
- Not Directly
You can open and commit a AD Schematic file within Circuit Maker You cannot open a PCB file directly, but can export from AD as "PCB Binary 4.0" and import it into Circuit Maker You can open AD .SchLib and .PcbLib files directly with Circuit Maker but cannot use them in your designs Need to upgrade your parts, with a system like:
Find part in Civa, and do "Build your own"
Cut/Paste Schematic symbol from your AD .SchLib into the CM Civa part
Cut/Paste PCB symbol from your AD .PcBLib into the CM Civa part
Replace the original Unmanaged Part in your schematic with the one you just created
Anyways, That is the gist and there is the original, better writeup that I can't find right now. I just went through this on a design this weekend and it worked ok. The only Gotchas were that I accidently changed the origins on some footprints during the cut/paste so when I resynced my updated schematic with the PCB it shifted some parts around.. no big deal. Also, this is easier with small designs of course :)
