component overlap not flagged

#1 Post by kjrowett » 12 Dec 2019, 21:31

DT PCB let me place a 0402 resistor "underneath" a 64 pin TQFP package - i.e. both components were on the same layer.

Is there a way for DRC to detect this?

Not in the current version of DipTrace (3.3.1.3), unless their copper objects happen to collide. Supposedly, this oversight will be taken care of in the upcoming version (v4) with the addition of a "Courtyard" layer that will indicate, and allow enforcement of, pattern boundaries.
