Need help in generating odb++ in boardstation..

Not open for further replies.
Thanks but I'm new to board station and in the File export there is to Autothermal,3D mechanical, IGES. Gencad.

I dont know where I need to go to find the odb++ toolbar..

Kindly help me and tell the way to generate the odb++

As I said, You generate ODB++ from within Fablink.

In Design manager, select the pcb, press the RMB and select Fablink. This wil open the design in Fablink. From there you can create all kind of output files.

Ofcourse you need to have ODB++ installed in the BoardStation environment

Thank u very much for your prompt response

If u dont mind.. kindly share me how to generate the IPC net list in the FAB link tool bar..

According to the info on SupportNet, there is no way of generating IPC-D-356 netlist directly. However, there is a AWK script provided by Mentor that wil extract the netlist from the neutral file.

I have never used this, so good luck. :lol:

If you are using ODB++ the netlist will be embedded within the ODB++ data, so shouldn't need the IPC-D356 format netlist.
