I have a very odd shaped PCB outline and wish to make planes for it. Somewhere in my background I remember the ability to create a shape the same shape of the outline using the menus and being able to reduce the shape to be 50mil smallerthan the outline.
Does anyone remember this ability in Allegro. I was using Allegro until 2 yrs ago but now use Orcad Layout.
The same with the routing keepin
N i z e said:using a shrinked Z-copy of the outline in the route keepout layer and then changing the trace width of this...
Forget this! The route keepout layer seemingly only support filled shapes. I ended up setting the grid to "nothing" and painstakingly modifying all the fills (by hand!) to fit the route keep in (a shrinked board outline). Feels insane to spend so long time on what basically must/should be computer/software task. Will be interesting to see how it should have been done (and what a valid search term is) ;-P
