  • Re: Inserting excel sheet in schematic sheet
     When I insert an excel file Design Capture requires two clicks to define the size of the image. After that I can click on the image and drag any of the corner points to resize. Does this not work for you?

  • Re: Snap to symbol origin
    Hi Bud, I also get the same. I am using V16.6 with S016 hotfix. Just to try something different I also moved a component placement outline and selected snap to shape centre. It snapped to the component origin :). Jim

  • Re: OVAL OBLONG DRILL SLOT NC-ROUTE
    For comparison I have created an nc slot file which you can look at for differences in your setup. On the other hand you may need to change something in your CAM 350 but as I do not have that software I can not say. As for working with gerber files you could simply draw and dimension the slot in your drill drawing and let the board manufacturer ...

  • Re: OVAL OBLONG DRILL SLOT NC-ROUTE
     If I understand the question, it seems that you need to create a padstack and select Oval Slot for the hole type. Menu > Tools > Padstack > Modify Library Padstack... Choose and existing padstack and modify it then save under a new name. The slot appears in your drill legend, you then need to create the NC Route file.

  • Re: Visible user property values
    Hi Ole I have just updated to S016 but have the same result, if I make a user property visible in a format symbol I can not save the symbol. Unfortunately dbdoctor reports no errors. If I hide the property again the symbol saves ok. I get the feeling that what I am trying to do is not supported... Jim

  • Visible user property values
    Hi, I am using axlDBCreatePropDictEntry in in my allegro.ilinit file to add the user properties in all designs, if the do not exist already. I can add user properties such as design_name, design_no etc. to a format symbol and I can see and modify the properties when the symbol is added to a board. The problem occurs when I try to make the ...

  • Re: Mech parts in Orcad Design Entry
     Thanks Steve. I am looking for a way add a property to a symbol that will add a line to the bom for the mech part referenced. We do not use the database method because we have lots of clients who send us their designs/netlists and do not have a fixed part numbering system. I am hoping it is possible to add properties like prop_mech1, ...

  • Mech parts in Orcad Design Entry
    Does anyone know how to add mechanical parts to a schematic symbol so that they appear in the bom? I am thinking of connectors with associated screws etc. At the moment we create a bom and then manually add the mechanical parts. I am using v 16.5 but not the CIS part manager. Therefore I only use the Tools > Bill of Materials menu ...

  • New design defaults in Allegro 16.6
    Hi, I have a board called new_default.brd in the location specified by my wizard_template_path variable but when I start a new drawing without selecting a specific template I do not get the new_default board settings. Whats new in v16.6 says "New designs can be automatically seeded with a default template design" using this method. ...
