  • Using CM to control mechincal pin spacing
    How would one control the mechincal through pin to shape spacing using the constriant manager in 16.6? I figured Thru Pin to Shape would do the trick but it doesn't. The Hole to Shape will work but I'm not sure that is the correct constraint. Thanks!

     Ah! You got me thinking. My padstack didn't have a default internal layer defined.

  • Why is this ratsnest there?
    You can obviously see that these two pins are connected by a copper GND plane. Why does it want me to connect with a trace?

  • Re: How to wait for user input in script file
    Yes, that is what I was looking for. Using the record mode the script is generated with two extra lines of code that ask for the macro's origin and then picks (0,0) as the origin for the object being placed: pick_origin pick rel grid 0.0000 0.0000

  • How to wait for user input in script file
    Hi, First off, I hope this is the correct forum section for this post. I am recording scripts from the "File > Scripts..." menu in 16.6 and eventually want to combine them all together. A few of them require a user mouse click but this gets overridden when the next section of the script runs. For example, I recorded a script to ...

  • Re: Why can't you slide components?
    Ah ha! That is exactly what I was searching for. I can't believe I never tried that option. Thanks.

  • Re: Why can't you slide components?
    Thanks for the reply. I do understand it is for copper connections but why isn't it extended into components as well? When moving a component the connections stay where they are which is a pain if you want to move it say 500 mils... then you have to redo every single connection rather than just sliding the component (with hug only) then ...

  • Why can't you slide components?
    Hi, I am using 16.6 and can easily slide vias, clines, etc. but not components. Sure it might cause some issues but if it a simple 2 pin component or even a DFN/QFN component with hug only turned on it wont screw everything up. Am I missing something or is this just not possible? Thanks, Aric

  • Re: Creating a module
    The problem is the reference designators are almost identical on the two designs. Usaully we for each design we add a "_1" or "_2" to the end of the reference designtors for say design 1 and design 2, respectively. I think this is messy and requires quite a bit of manual work.  The place replicate option seemed to work ...

  • Creating a module
    Hi, I have 2 boards that I want to combine into a single board using modules. The boards do have very similarly named nets and symbols. After reading through some of the documentation I try the following steps: 1) Go to each of the 2 seperate boards and create a module with "Tools > Create Module". I select, by window, the outline ...
