Re: Show only a single net in PCB Layout?

Another option might be to temporarily change the color of the other nets to match the background color. You may also need to turn off certain layers ( Silk , Comp Outline , Courtyard , etc.) to reduce the remaining visual clutter. Depending on the number of nets in your design, it can become very t...

Re: Show only a single net in PCB Layout?

There does not appear to be a " Show Only This Net " option in DipTrace 4.3.0.1 . Right-clicking on the desired net and selecting either " Highlight Net " or " Trace Color " > " Custom... " (choose a vibrant color) to make it stand out from the rest is probably the closest thing to a visualization a...

Re: Rings Around Pads

Would it be possible to post a screen shot of the rings? Better yet, could you upload the PCB file (or a small sample that shows the problem) here?

Re: Cannot get past 'Warning! Pad size/spacing too small'

Try this to see if it fixes the problem... 1) Open a second board where the autorouter actually works as expected (make sure it is one with a similar rules/layers/vias setup), select Route > Save Rules... , give the new rules file a name, save it to a convenient location and close the second PCB wit...

Re: feedback on my first PCB

Initial Observations 1) Schematic: since there is nothing on sheet 2 it can be deleted. 2) Schematic: typically, ICs will have the reference designator prefix " U " (e.g. U1 , U2 , U3 , etc.). You can always add text labels next to ICs to clarify functions (e.g. DOOR1 , DOOR2 , DOOR1.1 , DOOR1.2 , ...

Re: teardrop color

...Can anyone suggest how to make these teardrops visible in the bottom layer... You have selected white for the bottom copper and for some unknown reason the teardrops aren't visible. This looks like a bug to me. If you change the bottom copper color to something like green, it will show up. Even ...
