View any EAGLE CAD file on your iPhone or iPad and generate realtime photorealistic images of your PCB in real time. Touch your PCB and share with the world.
Open any EAGLE CAD file (from version 6 and above) directly on your iPhone and investigate the PCB layout and schematics with your finger. Select parts and signals, manage parts and Bill of Materials.
Copper creates 3D versions of your PCB including parts that you assign from our extensive 3D model library to your footprints. Copper then renders a photorealistic representation in real time that you can touch, rotate and move in a virtual studio. Setup lights and materials like the solder mask or the floor.
Import EAGLE files from any source like the web (just download a ZIP file with EAGLE files), from Github, your Dropbox, or send PCB files directly via Airdrop, Mail or iMessage to your iPhone or iPad.
Every file you import is kept in Coppers library. This way you can build up a nice library of PCBs and Schematics right in your pocket.
Copper is also available for the Mac and both share the same codebase and file format.

Ratings and Reviews
Great potential, stale
This app has great potential but it is not actively
developed, and lots of bugs have accrued.
This app is very useful, I’ve enjoyed reviewing my projects on the fly anywhere away from my computer, but after a week of having this app installed my screen on phone phone started to glitch, when using the app I’d tap several times on something and no response, then suddenly all my taps quickly happened and was unstable. Outside of the app my screen would do the same thing, the touch screen would stop working in sections, I would force quit the app and the problems went away until I opened the app again. After upgrading my phone I installed the app again thinking it was just the last phone. After a week on the new phone with the app installed same issues came up. I deleted the app completely and now my phone is acting normal. Not sure what’s happened but it’s sad to not be able to keep the app. It’s great.
If you use Eagle PCB software, you need this app. It lets you see both your schematic and board on your iPhone. It also shows a BOM file which makes parts ordering a breeze. If you delete a board it only removes it from your iphone, your original file is untouched. You can view either side of a two sided board as well as an x-ray view looking through the board. And also a 3-D view of your board. Like the eyeball in Eagle you can highlight a trace or part in the schematic and it will highlight on the board. I highly recommend this app. If you have an iPad it's even better.
