Re: Library Search

As always, I cannot guarantee a proper fit or fire resistance. Fire? :o I looked into the library location issues after my fiasco with diptracebeta/diptrace31 and found I could make a directory C:\diptrace\ all libraries without the usual User name:C:\Users\ Kevin \Documents\DipTrace31\My Libraries...

Re: Copper pour and a board cutout DRC error

I thought I'd seen that 0.01 somewhere; Check Verification/Clearances click 'Net Classes...' in the bottom right corner and you'll find Min. Width at 0.01, is 'Use Clearance in DRC' checked? -- 19 Jul 2017, 15:10 -- I just dropped a cutout on a PCB and fond the properties of the copper pour/ Border ...

Re: Design Rule number truncation

I get it now: I ran the auto-router with the old .152 setting which generated the errors and after I setup the Nets I still had the errors because I was still using the old trace width. I unrouted then routed with the new setting, da :oops: .

Design Rule number truncation

I did a layout that resulted in many errors but I found that internally DT is truncating 0.1528 to 0.15 then throwing a fit. The Errors: http://aaes.us/diptrace/oshrules.jpg Design Rules I: http://aaes.us/diptrace/oshrules1.jpg Design Rules II: http://aaes.us/diptrace/oshrules2.jpg Router Setup: htt...

Re: Does Diptrace have pre-made solder jumper patterns?

I ran into this issue and gave up - needed the board done so each address got it's own layout!
I just took the time to figure it out: Build a pattern:

Rule Setup not saving and Outer Diameter/Annular Ring issues

In Route Setup I can't name the rules. Vias has Outer Diameter instead of Ring Size as in Design Rules I'm use to annular ring so I could grasp Ring Size but Outer Diameter? (diameter of the pad - diameter of the hole) / 2 or in this case annular ring *2 + diameter of the hole So using OSHPark Desig...

Re: 3.101 drops connection on PCB

Read the " p.p.s. " in my previous post about the ratline being caused by a missing trace. Don't worry, this probably won't affect the functionality of your manufactured PCB.
