OrCAD PCB Editor,16.2

  • omit / ignore parts in a BOM(BOM_IGNORE?), also label as "do not stuff" automatically in BOM

    I've looked at several forms/user guides/help documents and I'm unable to find the answers I'm looking for. I'm using orcad capture 16.2. I do *not* have CIS :'( 1. Is there a straightforward way to keep schematic compenonts off of the BOM. e.g. a PCB pad, fiducials, etc. EDIT: I'm...

  • Orcad PCB Designer 16.2 Selecting vias when manually routing.

    Hi, I have a design where I need to use two or more different via sizes when manually routing some tracking. I have these vias defined and have added them into the via list. However, the problem is that I cannot select any via other than the first one defined in the list. I'm sure I'm missing...
