I want to see the pcb footprint when a schematic symbol is placed.
Example: CAP1206 on PCB Editor side, same on schematic symbol side.
PCB Editor path to footprint library is: P:\a_PCB_Design\CADENCE PCB DESIGN\SYMBOLS\CAPS, symbol CAP1206.dra
Schematic symbol library path is:P:\a_PCB_Design\CADENCE SCHEMATIC\Library\Lester\CAPACITOR.OLB, symbol CAP1206
INI file setup
[Footprint Viewer Type]Type=Allegro[Allegro Footprints]
Dir1=P:\a_PCB_Design\CADENCE PCB DESIGN\SYMBOLS\CAPS
followed by rest of libraries
When I select the schematic symbol (CAP1206) in the design and RMB for show footprint, I don't see the footprint.
On the command line it says: Allegro footprint CAP1206 not found in search path.
I do have the, P:\a_PCB_Design\CADENCE PCB DESIGN\SYMBOLS\CAPS in the Paths, Library, psmpath on the PCB EDITOR side.
What am I missing for this to work?
It could be a few things.
1. Make sure the dra and associated *sm (psm, bsm, ssm, osm, fsm) are in the same directory).
2. You don't mention a Dir0=......
3. You have a space in the psmpath. It might / might not cause an issue but you could try replacing the space with a _
