Hi, Originally posted in cdnusers.org by ejlersen
I've created a skill program which can help you backannotate pick and place data from Allegro PCB Editor into OrCAD Capture CIS. The benefits of this is that you can create pick and place data in Capture CIS and thus reflect the actual design variants.
I would strongly recommend you to read the header of the skill file since it explains the different posibilities for x,y placement export. Currently it exports the symbol origin so if you would like it to export the body_center instead you need to change the skill program - or feel free to email me.
