How to replace compact pcb by a solid block
A compact PCB can be replaced with a block by using orthotropic conductivity.
1. Create the compact pcb as needed.
2. Get the values of Kp (Effective conductivity (inplane) and Kn (Effective conductivity (normal) from the PCB properties panel.
3. Create a solid block of same size as the pcb.
4. Apply the values of the values for a new material with orthotropic conductivity i.e., Kx, Ky, Kz. Users can get this value as and use them in the solid after providing layer information.
5. Delete the compact pcb.
