I have package symbol that I want to prevent from being placed on the bottom side of a PCB.
The ideal solution would be that I get some kind of warning when I try to place the symbol on the bottom side, but still have the option to override the warning in the rare case that I would like to place it on the bottom.Is it possible to do that?
If you assign a PACKAGE_HEIGHT_MAX property to the symbols placebound, you can then put a placebound shape on the bottom of the board with a PACKAGE_HEIGHT_MIN property. if the value of PACKAGE_HEIGHT_MAX for the component exceeds the value of PACKAGE_HEIGHT_MIN for the board, a DRC error will be generated.Regards,Harold Pattie C.I.D.Sr. PCB Design EngineerEntrisphere, Inc.(408)email@example.com
Another method is the ALT_SYMBOLS_HARD property. See the property reference manual
Where would one find the "property reference manual" ?We just purchased Cadence, our IT guys have yet to load it so I'm seeking any manuals.Appreciate any help.
