    I can't post pictures of this because it's proprietary and a nice competitive advantage, but my company has done an amazing job of integrating mechanical enclosure design with high voltage PCB design to make our products smaller, cheaper and more reliable. It basically involves 3-D CAD models of the enclosure integrating with 3-D models of the PCB assemblies to optimize high voltage creepage and clearance distances while minimizing overall product size. Pretty amazing stuff to see, IMO.

    And of course, the initial mechanical prototypes were 3-D printed, to help look for further optimizations... Gotta love those talented MEs (I'm on the EE side of these projects). :smile:
