    Error of Export ODB++ Inside.. Reply

    Hi, All,

    I met an error during exporting the ODB++:
    eif_cadence-583003-Error translating input record

    ***********ERROR      22Dec2006.142228.713  2252  7.6.0R3(96) Windows XP

    Status raised : module - G:/s76/translators/brd2odb/brd2odb.c, line - 393

    Then I can't export the ODB++ files.
    My Allegro version is SPB15.5.1-43CF, and the ODB++ Inside version is 7.6.0R3.
    How to deal with this problem? Thanks!

    Hi Leonlee,

    I will be running the DBDoctor first incase of any issue with Allegro. This helps to fix any corruption in database.

    Set the Artwork film setting and Check if you are able to generate artwork with out any errors.
    If there are any errors in the film delete and recreate the film.
    Now try generating the ODB output.

    I am not sure what setting u have in the ODB++ menu. Give a snap shot of your setting.

    Try this.. Good Luck!!!

    Raj.

    Thanks, Raj,

    You are right, After I set the Artwork film and fix all errors. The fuction of exporing to ODB++ is OK.
    I modified the Decimal places:3 to 5, and modified Artwork format from Gerber 4x00 to Gerber RS274X.

    But, when I change the setting back to the old one, I can export the ODB++ too. No eif_cadence-583003-Error occurs.
    I don't know why, the error of artwork is the reason for ODB++ export, isn't it?

    Ohh great!!!

    I think the ODB++ may take the reference of the artwork setting initially. As you can see when you create anew design the artwork for top and bottom layers get created automatically.

    that's what I understand.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas!!!
