Stacking of two PCBs 3D - the best way

I will create two PCBs where one is on the top of the other, interconnected by the Header type socket 2,54mm.


What is the proper way to visualize both of them stacked like a sandwich in 3D?

Should I create one Fusion project and draw two schematics in there? Or Can I split the job for Pcb1 in Project1 and Pcb2 in Project2 and then finally at the end somehow stack two PCBs together in 3d view?


What is the best way for such project?

Hello @christopher2KLSVU,

I hope this message finds you well. The best approach is in line with your second idea. Make separate electronic design documents for each PCB(They can technically be in the same project but if that's confusing just make a project for each PCB).

Two stack them you will create a new Fusion360 model and insert each 3D PCB into that new model.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best Regards,
