Hello Everyone ,Originally posted in cdnusers.org by psj
I have some quetions ( Cadence Allegro PCB Editor Version 15.2) :
1) What exactly is the purpose or use of the create detail command?
2) When I use the command Manufacture---Variants---Create assembly drawing..,
I get a error messgae stating :
ERROR: Variants file 'variants.lst' not found!
And no output is generated ...
What exactly this means? Can anyone let me know ?
3)Regarding plotting , can anyone tell, if we specify exact x and y co-ordinate for the position of plot ( layout ) on the paper? ( Most of the times it appears at the centre of the paper )
4) How can the cuouts be defined in the allegro PCB Editor ...By the way, they can be defined on any layer ( eg. board geomety--outline layer or some other layer ) , but is there any specific layer on which cutouts on the board can be defined ? So that CNC routing program at the manufacturer's end would automatically recognise a cutout on the board( from the gerber file )?
I tried to add a rectangular cutout in the board in the Class Board geemetry and Sub class NC route_path and I tried generating a NC route file .....but when I viewed the log file , I had a message
WARNING: Can't find NC Route bit file (ncroutebits.txt)!
Using T01 to route ALL route cuts.
Is anyone familiar , where exactly is the ncroutebits.txt file is located and its purpose ?
(Only those slots were recognised by the NC route file those were defined using the pad designer......)
So let me know anyone has any idea about this?
