Export a PDX package

A Product Data eXchange, or PDX, package is a compressed file that contains part, multi-level BOM, approved source, and similar design data, as well as related file attachments. PDXpert exports PDX files in accordance with the IPC-2571 and IPC-2578 standards (www.ipc.org).

The PDXpert website describes what data is included in a PDX package. Search the web for PDXpert attributes to IPC-2570 elements

  • In the workspace, click on an item window, open the context menu, and select the Export PDX Package command.

    To display the context menu, click the secondary (usually right) mouse button while hovering on a part, document or change form window.

  • Navigate to the desired folder, and click the Save button to save the PDX package file.

A PDX package viewer application enables users to open and browse PDX packages, and usually allow extracting file attachments. Some manufacturing (MRP/ERP) systems can import part and BOM data from a PDX package.
