Its been a long time since I've worked designing PCB's. I'm using Orcad Capture for elaborating the schematics and then, and this part is where I'm having a problem, trying to creat the PCB Boadr, creating the NetList, etc etc. I follow all the steps and I even tried doing it with a simple RC circuit to see if my design was the problem. But gives me the same error.
Now, what is the error yu might ask. Well, after creating "successfully" the Netlist, the PCB editor opens BUT, and this is the imporant part, THERE IS NO PCB in sight.
I really dont know what migh it be. If any one can help me with this I would really apreciate it.
P.S: using ORCAD 16.6 on Windows 7 x64.
Are you expecting to find a finished PCB?
You need to add a Board Outline and Place Keepin, then you can use the Place>Quickplace to get the Parts onto the canvas, or use Place>Manually to place components from the Placement list. PCB Editor designs can have many thousands of parts, it wouldn't be productive to "just dump" the parts onto the canvas in all cases.
In reply to pcbapc:
Old Mouldy is correct. Once you have created the netlist, you need to go into the PCB editor (which should open automatically) and place the board outline. Then manually place the components from the picker.
I tend to not use the component keepout/keepin areas when I do an initial design as these are only additional areas that need to be changed when the baord outline needs to be expanded or reduced. Once I know how much area is required, I adjust the board outline and then add the keepout/keepin areas.
The impossible we do straight away. Miracles take a little longer.
