Default An ORCAD question

As several people on this thread seem to use or know a little of ORCAD, can anyone tell me if it's possible to import an ORCAD DOS design from the past (version 3.10) onto a newer one (version 9.0). Which are the steps?

Thanks!



Carlos

Convert the old ORCAD into a DXF file. Then import into the new one.

Have you checked the components outline ? If its set to global and not restricted to one side you will have an Design Rule Check violation.

Sometimes ORCAD don't seems to understand that you want to place on both sides

carlmart...
Are you importing the whole project, with schematics, or just the layout??
In principle , you should be able to import directly, but be prepared to run the library manager parallell, as you might have to define all teh footprints again. There is also an import function if your old file is an ASCII netlist or MAX file. There is no reference in the manuals or help files to the older versions.

Konrad:
In component mode, mark the comp. in question, - right click and "opposite" ( Shorthand - "T") ( you should see the footprint change colour according to the top/bottom layer colour )
BTW-Konrad..how far north ??
