Another newbie here! My issue goes as follows:
I am building my component symbols libraries for my project, and am working with the design guidelines from the PCB manufacturer. There, they require what they call a "Placement Keepout Area to Neighboring Component Placement Keepout Area", that is a placement keepout or courtyard from other component placement keepouts, to ensure certain clearance between components.
The question goes, which is the best way to define this clearance when creating the part symbols? The easiest way I guess would be to set the package boundary so that it cover the real physical boundary of the package plus the required clearance. The drawback of this, is that the 2-1/2 view will now display the package + clearance. Is there any other bound or keepout that would do the trick?
Thank you very much!
