Is there a method for adding a non-electrical symbol to an HDL schematic such that it gets passed on to board layout (Allegro). We are interested in getting tooling and non-plated holes into the layout in this way - especially in a manner where the IDX file that the mechanical engineer provides would be able to place the non-electrical symbol.
In order to create mechanical parts to be used in HDL-Allegro flow, you can use Part developer (PDV).
A mechanical part with the correct footprint can be passed to the Allegro PCB Editor netlist by defining the CLASS property on it.
To do this, use the following steps:
