Exporting out to ODB++ for Valor checking, the placebound outlines come over. When Valor sees these placebounds it thinks they are the component body outlines. How can we prevent the placebounds from coming over into Valor? Can anyone help?
Before you do the translation, select the Show/Hide Extended Options icon (upper left). When the additional sections are available, in the "Component Outline" section choose "Assembly". Hope this helps!
Thanks for the reply, it worked.
Great! I appreciate you letting us know. That way we all learn a little more instead of just wondering if it worked... Thanks!
Take care that your assembly outlines only contain component outlines. Valor will treat polarisation markers etc. as part of the outline and increase the device extents accordingly.
Yes your right! We noticed that the polarized band on our caps, which is a separate shape, bumps out further then the body. But it's something that we know about and can live with for now. We cant wait for version 15.5 to come out this summer which has a new DFA drc check just for ""body to body"". Thanks for the reply
