    Editing Copper pours V14.2 -vs- V15.5 Reply

    I just have loaded up the latest version of Allegro. But I have noticed that the copper pour menu has changed. Previously you were able to Edit>Shape select the shape then pick the elements you wanted cleared Via's, traces, small planes. etc... Can someone direct me in the new version on how these steps are done in V15.5.

    Thanks
    Brian

    Hi Brian

    In 14.2 Allegro was using Static shapes only - the shape required manual voiding to achieve the required DRC clearance. In 15.5 you have the choice of Static and Dynamic shapes - Dynamic shapes are linked into the DRC and will void automatically depending on the parameters of the shape. If the shape is dynamic there is not a option to void individual elements as this is done dynamically - you can however add properties to elements that affect the clearance (DYN_* properties). The shape Parameters define the way the shape behaves (voids to DRC values or Padstack values, clearance oversize, solid or hatched etc.

    To edit the shapes in 15.5 (or 15.2 and 15.5.1) use the Shapes menu - Shape->Select Shape or Void, then click on the shape - the shape will then get small "square" boxes at each vertex which can be moved. To add a manual void into the shape use Manual Void->Polygon or Rectangular or Circle.
