I normally don't autoroute anything, but I'd like to try it on a board I'm working on. Problem is this board is 8 layers and my seat is limited to 6 layers. I'm thinking I can remove the layers where I have the power and gnd planes from the stack up and disable those nets in CM. Then add the layers back in after the routing has been done.
If this will work, how do I "lock" any existing traces I have routed to prevent the autorouter from moving them?
I have been having issues replying to posts. I log in, hit reply and I get kicked out. Guess they are getting tired of my inane questions / comments.............. Hopefully this post goes through.
Thank you for your tutorial on the autorouter. I have not yet tried any of the latest suggestions, but hope to over the weekend.
The training course I had was a three day course and just covered the basics. It was an emmense help as I would probably still be floundering without having taken it. I'd have to take the advanced course to get into autorouting. Since I do 99.9% manual routing, I don't think an advanced course is in my future.
