ultiboard

I have created a four layer pcb in Ultiboard 11.  When I try to export as dxf,  the application freezes.  I have never had a problem exporting dxfs in the past when using Ultiboard 11.  Are there any known problems with dxf exports from Ultiboard 11?

Re: ultiboard

If I remove the cutouts on the sides of the pcb,  the dxfs export okay.

Hi,

 

I opened your file Ultiboard 11 and was able to export the DXF without a problem. The file is 17Mb so I can't attach it here.

 

Try to export your design to two files with the layers split between them. I know it's inconvenient but I can't really think of something since the export is working fine with me.

Re: ultiboard

Hi,

 

Components who do not have footprints do not transfer from Multisim to Ultiboard, you must assign a footprint for the component in Multisim.

Please post your future questions in a new thread so you guarantee a response for them.

 

Thank you,
