    Tutorials or Quick Start Guide for PCB Editor Reply

    I am new to PCB Editor and I am needing a quick start gude.  We have been using layout but that product has been discontinued.  The design process in PCB Editor seems to be very different than Layout so I'm having problems getting started.

    There should be a Windows Start Menu item under the Cadence tools for Tutorials that walks you through every single step...

    Located on your system here:

    %CDSROOT%/doc/algrotutorial/algrotutorialTOC.html where CDSROOT is the install path.

    The tutorial for PCB Editor says coming soon on my version of the software.  I was able to find what I need on sourcelink.

    We are also moving from Layout to PCB Designer and I have just rewritten the tutorial for my laboratory course. I've attached it in case you are looking for a *very* simple introduction to PCB Designer. The tutorial is written for second-year undergraduates and contains revision material for electronics, Capture and PSpice, so please don't feel insulted. It is their first exposure to PCB design. This is the version for demonstrators (instructors), which includes some tips for when things go wrong.

    The handout includes a lot of local material because we have designed a library of footprints for manual construction by inexpert students and our in-house processing of PCBs is primitive. If people find the document useful, I'll take out the local stuff.

    Unfortunately the file was slightly larger than the limit for uploads so I have split it into two. The appendices will follow in a further posting.

     Here is the final part of the tutorial, which is intended mainly for instructors (and as a reminder to me).
