Hello, I am a new Allegro user and until I get trained in August I am having to self train using the help documentation and demos. I have ran into a problem with finding how to define the board stackup. The documentation staes you can use any of the following.*Cross section icon*define xsection command line*Setup - cross section menuI seem to have none of these available to me. I even added all icons and menu items in my preferences to make sure I just had it hidden. I also made sure that I was creating a .brd file and not a symbol, etc.Any help would be appreciatedThank You
I'm going to guess that you're using the Studio version of the software, and that you need to be in either Performance or Expert to use this feature.
So would there be an equilavent in the version I am using?Thanks!
Probably not...there are some things you just can't do without the more powerful suite of tools. Perhaps someone else can offer ideas here...?
in PCB L Product try Tools -> Setup Advisor. In dialog click Next and then click on Edit Cross-section button
To edit the stackup in Studio, go to Setup - Subclasses then click the Etch button. BTW, Cadence informs me the XL version of the stackup editor will be available in Studio in release 16.0 along with Constraint Manager to manage Physical and Spacing Constraints. Randy
