EAGLE is the best PCB software package I've used so far, as It's easy to use, simple, and has a wide range of existing libraries. However, one thing that I'd really like to see included in it is some sort of 3D view. This is available on other packages like DIPtrace and Altium designer, but not (that I'm aware of) on EAGLE! Please consider adding this, as it's a really useful feature to visualise your board before production, and it helps in spotting any errors before you send it off!Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/thread/21437.

I have just had the opportunity to give the new IPROCircuit from Italian software company Fronema, a test drive.And boy, am I impressed! In this new release, targeted at the recently available IronCAD 2015, there is native Eagle support:A custom ULP does all the work that previously required going through SketchUp/EagleUp, and with a few mouse clicks I can now import my Eagle creations into the 3D realm of IronCAD.There are a bunch of easy-to-use features to help me handle component librarys, what to import (or to avoid), replace individual components (in case a package is missing, and I have a similar replacement), and much more.Of course, this requires that You already have and are using IronCAD, but if you don't, it might be worth the switch :-) The current information about IPROCircuit at Fronemas web doesn't yet mention this new version (v17), and the screenshots and videos are from a previous version, but I expect that to change soon.If you are serious about working in 3D with your Eagle boards, you should definitely have a look at IPROCircuit./MOriginal article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/142495?tstart=0#142495.
