DXF Import

  • Importing .dxf file from SolidWorks into OrCAD

    Hey guys, I was trying to import a .dxf file from SolidWorks to create a custom board outline. This is the messsage I got in return. Not sure what to do with it. Has anyone encountered a similar problem and can share how to solve it? Regards, Rico DXF Import Log: Reading Layer Conversion File Error:...

  • DXF import into Allegro 16.3 / 16.5

    I have used dxf imports before in Layout 15.7 and we had a simple way to use layers for the basic designs and then import a v12 dxf. But when I try to develop a basic board outline for Allegro 16.3 or 16.5, there does not appear to be a way of importing the plated and non-plated holes into a PCB. What...

  • DXF import in Allegro (argh!)

    I'm desparately trying to import a vector based logo into a Orcad PCB 16.2. However, this for some reason suddenly seem impossible: If I try to import DXF I never seem to be able to "view selected layers" (and thus never import anything). The dialogue does however show me DXF layer names...

  • photoplot outline for complicated, imported board outline shape?

    Hi everyone, I'm going through the process of generating manufacturing files. Step 1 appears to be to add a photoplot outline. To create the outline, I relied on someone using a mechanical CAD tool to generate my board outline - I imported that outline as a .dxf file and assigned it to the Board...

  • Re: Reg: SMA connector

    Not all manufacturer offers free footprints. To many, maintaining a library of such is difficult. For instance, handeling the solder mask openings vs copper surfaces differs from region to region. There is always a risk that you will end up trusting a footprint that you yourself did not create according...
