    Changing the grid size in Allegro PCB Editor Reply

    Hi,

          All of our projects are been put in (mm) dimensions only.In PCB Editor me had kept the grid size as 2.54(mm) initially. Then after some referred on line books i divide the value by 2 (i.e).,2.54/2=1.27(mm). If i kept this means i have to zoom the components by too inner.Its create me put the manual routing problem in editor.

    So can provide the solution that what is grid size want to kept in editor.

    The default grids are 100 Mils for Non-Etch and 25 Mils for Etch, if you choose a "default" board as the starting point, that is what you will get. You can set as many, or as few, of the required settings in your own "template" BRD file and use this as a "Template", in PCB Editor, File>New and as the "Input Board" in Capture. For example, you could set the units, design size, grids and so on, as required in the "Template" BRD file.
