Can anybody explain what does it means this msg error?
When I update the PCB this happens:
" Netrev error detected. ERROR(SPMHDB-195): Error processing 'U8': Text line is outside of the extents.."
Is it about footprint drawing (text)? or is it about text inside some file, other text issues, etc?
Thanks in advance.
For me this happens when the part attribute on a part is changed to something too long to fit in the default extents (not the board outline, the size of the design area).
menu button. >Quick Utilities >Design Paramters > [Design Tab] [Extents]
The default extents in MM tend to be rather small.
I have translated an old version project and update it to 16.6. I have not created the footprints. I'm so new with OrCad yet. But I could feel the differences managing OrCad versus other PCB CADs, as Eagle or Altium.
Thank you so much for your answer, I have followed the steeps you share here, I have this right now:
I don't know what ot the 3 texts blocks is the one that is going out of the extents.
What is supposed that I must do with the extents parameter? Can I make it bigger? Must I edit some text value nam and do it smaller?
I don't know how to edit the text and change names, or how to know in what layer is everyone, there is no right click menu on the footprint to display this information. It seems to be a little more complex.
Thanks in advance.
Hi Eu. In the footprint editor you're ok. Everything fits in the 38x38mm Extents. What you need to look at is the board file you're trying to bring this into. If your design Extents are say 100x100mm you'll have no problems bringing this footprint in, as long as you don't shove it over into some corner of your board. If you do have that issue, just increase the board file's Extents (say to 200x200mm).
And there's nothing special about the board file Extents. You can make it as large as you want. Do a 'window world' and you'll see the board size vs the Extents.
always wondered if it was a "fence" to make sure we don't accidentally zap something 12 feet away from the origin or if it impacted the database size for the board.
