Is there a way to re-use design constraints if the stack-ups are different? I just finished a 12 layer board and am now working on an 8 layer board which requires the same constraints? Ultimately all I would like to transfer is the spacing constraints. Is this possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You could try from Constraint Manager use File - Export - Technology File, the just select physical and spacing. In 16.6 there is the ability to create a generic tech file that uses Top, Bottom, Internal Signal and Internal Plane.
In reply to steve:
Has anyone found a solution for this one yet? I'm looking to copy over constraints for multiple different boards with different layer counts.
I'm on 16.3 and when I try to use the technology file it does not allow me to bring it in if the cross sections does not match.
If possible I like to bring in tech file from the whole board instead of just the constraints manager. (For items from setup/constraints/modes and etc.)
Please let me know if anyone has suggestions.

Cadence introduced a "generic" export in 16.6. From Constraint Manager try a File - Export - Constraints then at the bottom og the GUI click on Generic and Configure.
