Re: What significance does 'Net Classes' and 'Load Classes' have in Schematic Capture

The only reference to " Load Classes " I can find is in the schematic help file under [+]Schematic > [+]User Interface > [+]Main Menu > [?]Objects , which states... " Load Classes – load net classes from previously saved rule file (*.rul) or directly from any layout file (*.dip). " Yes, that is all...

Re: What significance does 'Net Classes' and 'Load Classes' have in Schematic Capture

 
Umm, :? maybe Stanislav or one of the other Technical Support people can give a full and detailed explanation (with possibly examples) of how this works and how it is used as I am unable to find a reference to 'Load Classes' in the PDF tutorial.

Re: What significance does 'Net Classes' and 'Load Classes' have in Schematic Capture

Thanks for reply Tomg, but... Surely you can just create a schematic with components and wires etc. Then do a convert to PCB to get the ratlines and components into the PCB Layout.. Then do either a auto-routing or manual routing and add/adjust the traces in Trace Templates.. Then within PCB Layout ...

What significance does 'Net Classes' and 'Load Classes' have in Schematic Editor

Can someone please explain the significance 'Net Classes' (and 'Load Classes') have in Schematic Design and how do they work?   NetClasses.jpg   I quickly laid a simple schematic with 8 nets. I then went into 'Objects'/'Net Classes' and added a net class called 'Production' with no other parameters,...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

1. The system allows to add more manufacturers even without changing software (all forms and settings are XML based), so we plan to add more manufacturers in the future (single per region, we will not add 2 US manufacturers or 2 from China). ....or 2 from China Can you add these Chinese PCB manufac...

Re: Warning: Flipped component-Compare to Schematic

It is very interesing. Within the PCB Layout program I did a 'File/Export/Gerber' which reported the following message...   Flipped.JPG So I exited out of Gerber export and went through right-clicking of each of the components and selecting 'Unflip Pattern' and then doing a rotate to get them aligne...

Re: Warning: Flipped component-Compare to Schematic

This might have something to do with the new detection algorithm as I believe the latest version of DipTrace prevents PCB components from being flipped and also shows a warning if flipped components are detected. Is it possible that those components were unknowingly flipped in an earlier version of...

Warning: Flipped component-Compare to Schematic

Several months ago I was showing a friend DT and said how versatile it was to design schematics and PCB's. I laid out a few (<10) components on a schematic and connected them together with wires then did an Electrical Rule Check which reported 'No errors found'. Then from the schematic did a conver...

Pattern Editor-My way of aligning objects precisely

I could not find the component I wanted when looking through the component library - in this case a RV09 potentiometer (Bourns PTV09). So I decided to make my own pattern.... I found a specification sheet on the internet and tried to create the pattern. I added the connection pads, added the green s...
