I was using the Coil Designer with no issues. Now, it is giving me an error when I try to use the feature.
*Error* parseString: argument #1 should be either a string or a symbol (type template = "SSg") - nil
Once I got the error message, I decided to try it out on the design file a few days before and had no issues. The only main change I did on the design is reducing the layer count. I assume that this is what caused the problem.
Anybody encountered this issue? And hopefully found a solution?
Try this solution:
Saving and reloading the film records may resolve the problem.
1. To save the film records
a. Select Manufacture > Artwork - Film Control tab
b. Select all film records
c. Right Mouse Button and choose "Save All Checked"
2. To load the film records
b. Click on 'Load...'
c. Select 'FILM_SETUP.txt' file
If the issue persists, you will have to delete and recreate the film records.
Thank you for your suggestion. I had to get the board out and I just created the coil pattern on the design file that didn't have any issues. From there, I exported the subdrawing and placed it in the current design file. Once I did that, I didn't run into anymore issues.
