I am fairly new to Allegro (16.0), so bear
with me. I am trying to use the autorouter, and it is killing me.
first, it wont connect VCC and GND nets to my VCC and GND planes, even
though the autorouter says it's 100% complete. second, it is ignoring
my constrains when it autoroutes. it will run traces right over pads,
and put vias straight through internal traces. what gives? I set my
spacing to be at least 10mil (some things are 12+).
here is an
image of what autorouter does to me:
does anyone know why my silkscreen layer does not always move with my
components when I move an entire group? the silkscreen moves twice as
far in a given direction as the rest of the parts, but only when I
select multiple parts.
ok, so the VCC and GND was a problem with the property no_route being set. I am not sure how it got set, but eliminating that property fixed the problem.
I still have a problem of it ignoring the constrainst. in every case I can find on my board, the autorouter has room to place vias and traces in the right locations, but it simply chooses to violate the constrains and put them too close. here is the "Show Element" file for one of the the DRC errors:
