    Teaming up on a Design Reply

    I'm looking for some guidance on the following.  A co-worker and I have teamed up on a fairly intense 12 layer design (controlled impedance, DDR, tuned traces, 684 ball BGA, etc)  My partner is responsible for placement, routing and meeting all of the technical design challenges and I am responsible for cleaning up the design cosmetically (silk placement, fab dwgs, assy dwgs etc) and preparing it for release to fab and assy.  I am aware that there are features within the tool (v 16.5) that enable a team approach to the design (sub-drawings, clip files, etc) but I have very little experience using those features toward this end.  Can anyone clue me in to documentation or tutorials that may be available for accomplishing this?  A sincere thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    I'm still on 16.3 so I don't know what you can do on 16.5, but it is possible to just record a script and run it on another person's board.

    I have used pretty old skill file "set_refdes.il" for importing silk screen refdes location from a different board also.

    If you need to do silk, fab, and assy then I think recording and running the script should work prety well.

    I would first try out a short script to make sure it will run well though.
