Re: built a PCB design without accounting for mirroring,.. anyway to salvage some of this work??

Since you are not driving the PCB layout with a schematic, you might consider trying one of the solutions below... Solution #1 Assuming your library components are correct and the PCB patterns are actual components with names matching those found in the libraries... 1) Make sure all layers are acti...

built a PCB design without accounting for mirroring,.. anyway to salvage some of this work??

In one of the first PCBs I designed as part of a larger project I didnt use a schematic, simply built it by eye. In my recent PCBs I started to use schematics as it makes things a million times easier and this made me realise a fatal flaw with the first PCB I built without any schematic. the bottom ...

route multiple traces to single point, maintaining same trace length

Hi, Im trying to build very basic PCB in Diptrace, without much knowledge of the software I have gotten by with the basic tools and finished most of the basic design. There is one final thing that would be too tedious do with basic tools means so Im hoping there may be more a efficient way to do thi...
