PCB Layout CAD : Routing Work

Isometric Routing

It is possible to execute Isometric Routing by specifying the Route Length and Tolerance in the DRC Settings.

Type Content

Real-time Isometric Routing

While routing, it is possible to draw routes for which the length is adjusted automatically.

Tune Route Length

Specifies the location and adjusts the route length after routing.

Make Routes Isometric

Automatically adjusts the route on the drawing so that the route length of the specified isometric route is within the tolerance.

 


Real-time Isometric Routing
The following will explain how to execute isometric routing.
(1)

[Settings]
=> [DRC/MRC Settings].
Configure "Route Length/Isometric Routing" settings.

(2) Select [Create PCB]
=> [Route].
(3) While routing, it is possible to draw routes for which the length is adjusted automatically.
(2) For [Route], when you want to make adjustments later instead of pulling routes for which the length is adjusted automatically, change the "Route" settings.

 


Tune Route Length
Specifies the location and adjusts the route length after routing.
(1) Select [Create PCB]
=> [Tune Route Length]
=> [Tune Route Length].
(2) Click the location where you want to insert the Tuning Shape.
  By dragging, it automatically becomes the Tuning Shape.
  The Tuning Shape can be adjusted from the Property Window.
  When using Tune Route Length, you can confirm the route length at the bottom of the screen.

Route Tuning Settings

The following will explain each setting for Route Tuning.

Item Content

Tuning Shape

Selects a Tuning Shape.

45 Degrees Arc Corner Arc

 

Maximum Amplitude

Sets the Maximum Amplitude for tuning.

Gap

Sets the inner route gap.

Trimming Length

Sets the Trimming Length for inner routes.

 


Make Routes Isometric
Automatically adjusts the route on the drawing so that the route length of the specified isometric route is within the tolerance.
(1) Select [Create PCB]
=> [Tune Route Length]
=> [Make Routes Isometric].
(2) Configure each setting and then click "OK".
(3) Click the "Close" button.
  The route on the drawing is automatically adjusted so that the Net route length of the specified isometric route is within the tolerance.

  The Tuning Shape can also be adjusted from the Property Window.
