Hi, Id like to attempt a skill program that takes the ref des. in Allegro and auto matically rotates them either 0 or 90 degrees. I dont have any experience with SKILL but I was looking thru the functions and did not see anything that would help. What is the best way to get started? I looked at the Cadence samples but these are all mathematical computation type of routines. Where would I find a routine that manipulates an Allegro database? Thanks, mw
please see cadence doc
I hope this helps out for some... http://www.amkor.com/products/notes_papers/Cadence_Paper1003.pdf
All, Moody's paper is also published on this community site under PCB Design/Technical Resources/SKILL. URL is http://www.cadence.com/community/allegro/Resources/resources_PCB/skill/tpamkor_skillcustomization.pdf
This is quite tricky. You have to select all text on the appropriate layes, i.e: axlClearSelSet() axlSetFindFilter( ?enabled (list "noall" "invisible" "text") ?onButtons (list "text")) text_list = axlGetSelSet( axlAddSelectAll()) axlCloseFindFilter() this gives all kind of text in the list text_list. Now iterate (use foreach) every element and check if it's on the appropriate layer i.e.: foreach( text_db text_list cond( (text_db->layer == "REF DES/ASSEMBLY_TOP" do_something( text_db) ) );end-cond );end-foreach in do_something() you have to remenber the parent id, the old text and then you delete te old text and create a new one with the right parent.. axlDBCreateText( old_dbid->text old_dbid->xy new_orientation old_dbid->layer old_dbid->parent) axlDeleteObject( old_dbid) That's it.
