DRC gap errors

Gang,

when running DRC on a project, I get an error about spacing

gap= .000000919 rule .006

Now .006 is a lot larger than .000000919, so what does DRC kick an error back?

Re: CPL and BOM files

Since I wasn't, so far, able to get past the robot, how does one find out that the JCSC part numbers are?

Re: CPL and BOM files

Thanks...
I have a small pcb with a dozen or so parts. Common as salt, but haven't been able to get pass the robot file checker. I'll give it a try. The parts are 99% resistors in the 1206 size. One transistor and two LEDs.I was hoping to see a few bucks per board.

Thanks.

CPL and BOM files

gang...

I've been toying with the idea of having some small pcbs with SMD parts assembled by JCLPCB.

I generated the BOM and CPL files

however, they robot at JCLPCB says' invalid format"
the files are .cvs

what's wrong?

Re: Is is possible to have two different spacing on a copper pour?

TOMG, That sort of worked. I got the spacing I required on the mounting holes, however, since they were connected to net1, all the pads on net 1 now had the .04 copper spacing. it's more or less okay, because there were only a few pads connected to net1 I'm going to work on the pattern and try it th...

Is is possible to have two different spacing on a copper pour?

Like the title says, is is possible to have two different spacings on a single copper pour? In my example, I need some hardware connected to a TO-3 device. I need extra space between the two holes so the hardware does not connect to the copper pour. If I tell the copper pour to space .04", then ALL ...

Curved text?

Gang....

is it possible to have curved text?

I'd like to put some text (Top silkscreen) along the circumference of a circle.

thanks...

Re: placing components around a circle

FYI...
Worked like a charm.
I had to mark the location of the parts with a hole then import the schematic

Re: placing components around a circle

Damn, I'm going to give that a try. I put a part down at 72º, then another at 144º and so on. However, when I got 'round the circle, nothing lined up correctly. After I put down the 72º parts, I'll need to mark them with a mounting hole, then when I pull in the actual schematic, I'l have reference p...
