ECAD Import Module Updates
Automatically Exclude Objects Outside the Board
When importing copper layers from IPC-2581 and ODB++ files, you can automatically exclude symbols located outside a specified distance from the edge of the board. There is an Ignore objects outside of board check box that, when checked, enables an expression field to define the offset distance.
Reload Layer Information
A new button, Reload Layers, is now available when importing the GDS-II, IPC-2581, and ODB++ formats. Use this button to reread the layer information from the ECAD file if the file has changed on the disk after the last time it was imported.
Support for implementation of the ODB++ Format was provided by Mentor Graphics Corporation pursuant to the ODB++ Solutions Development Partnership General Terms and Conditions (http://www.odb-sa.com).
