    autosilkUtils.il Reply

     Hi All:

    Hopefully Dave Elder reads this ?

    I am running Allegro 16.5  S018 and tried to run the autosilkUtils.il SKILL script.

    Everything seems to work except it does not put the DRCs into the walker popup window.

    Hopefully someone can fix this ?

    This is a great tool

    Thanks,

    Les

    Hi Les,

    It should work. What version number does the utility show in the form?

    Versions after 8.23 are suitable for 16.5 although my latest (unreleased version is 11.04)

    Dave,

    I am getting the error when my board outline is created as shapes. They are the designs templates.

    Is this a limitation or can you help in getting this fixed?

    E- (SPMHDB-185): Filled SHAPE may not exist on layer 'BOARD GEOMETRY/OUTLINE'.

    E- *Error* plus: can't handle (nil + nil)

    TIA.

    Thanks,
    Nagaraj.

    This is an Allegro limitation. You cannot have filled shapes on the BOARD GEOMETRY/OUTLINE layer.

    Dave,

    I don’t have any filled shapes in board geometry. But I have board outline created as unfilled shape.

    When I run silk skill I get the error message.

    Thanks,

    Nagaraj.

    Hi Nagaraj,

    There is no problem having your outline as a shape.

    What function are you running? Can you please me send a screenshot?

    Re: RE: RE: autosilkUtils.il Reply

    Do you have BOARD GEOMETRY/OUTLINE in a silkscreen film list?

    Please snapshot the other tab too.

    Here is the snap shot.

    I appreciate your time in helping for this issue.

    We have included the Board outline in all films.


    Thanks,

    Nagaraj.
