  • DXF output from Capture
    Does anybody know if DXF output from Capture works at all in v16.5 or 16.6? We have tried in v16.5 with no luck error message tells us DXF is not available at this time. Does that mean its functionality has not been implemented? Or are there other issues at play? I really need to get a number of schematic somehow into dxf ...

  • Re: typical Allegro learning curve ?
    I know this is a touchy subject for long time users of either Allegro or Expedition. It really comes down to what you have used the most and what you got used to. I have also used both tools but Expedition more, and I would have the opposite to say I would take Expedition hands down over Allegro. Both are very powerful tools. I have never ever had ...

  • Re: Allegro Placement Challenge
    Well in all honesty if the real concern is about truly managing placement conflicts, making the two boards in one design file, I do not see how you will get any real benefit. You still have to keep manual track of what you are moving where and their heights. Only benefit I see is yes both boards are right there to look at for placement while you ...

  • Re: How to export from Orcad Capture to PADS?
    Let me understand, first you mention PCB Editor then you mention Capture, so I assume you them mean both a schematic and pcb layout want to get translated from Orcad Layout & Capture. In both cases you really don't need to export anything, PADS has Orcad translators for both layotu & capture, so it woudl just be a question whether the ver ...

  • Re: Gerber file with different extension
    Those particular gerber/drill file extensions are standard output from the Altium tool. But yes from Allegro they would all be .art as standard. I would be surprised someone set Allegro to output as standard Altium outputs? That fab house should be able to read them in as separate files no matter what the extension is. as long as they ...

  • Re: NetList export from OrCAD to PADS or ALLEGRO
    OK well from first post, Again as I said in first responce, you must have a part type defined that is actually in a library. These warnings/erros can be cryptic, but, either one of two things you did not use the ECO process after a first load of net list or just imported netlist and parts are really already there. Or in fact you do not ...

  • Re: NetList export from OrCAD to PADS or ALLEGRO
    Remembered, Under teh netlist create "Other" tab that is where you can control what field will get populated in the netlist for footprint, or in this case it will eb a part type for PADS. You will need to verify that all of your symbols/parts have a proper footprint filed defined by making sure either Orcads default footprint field ...

  • Re: NetList export from OrCAD to PADS or ALLEGRO
    First how familiar are you with PADS? With PADS (pending version you are using of PADS) you need to export the PADS2000 format pads2K.dll there is a later version you can download that will also some back annotation? I think but if you are using any version of PADS 9 or later you need to use the 2K output and will also need to modify the ...
