Community topic for Automation

Hi All,

 

I would like to know, if anyone else is interested in a separate area inside the community, where we can discuss all the automation stuff.

In the EE Flow we already use automation for CES, DxD and Expedition. It would be great when we could exchenge experiences and maybe share or develop common code to improve the software.

 

regards,

Andreas

Hi Andreas, here I am.

 

 

I start only recently to develop a little application to fill Expedition Title Blocks.

I'm not an experienced programmer but step by step I wish to create a set of programs to automate my job flow.

 

 

Regards

Bortolo

Re: Community topic for Automation

 

Hi Andreas,

 

I already know these documents and I start to study AATK from version 3.

 

 

I developed some programs for my own use ( PCB Project manager and something like MOV / CAMOUT, automatic documentation , gerber verification and so on.. ) in VB6 to automate my job ( without using Automation layer right now )

My job is PCB Designer and I'm not a skilled sw developer so developing is slowly ( when I have time, after dinner at home )

 

 

Thanks

Bortolo

I support the idea of an automation sub-community.

I would support this as well.  I believe this is a very good suggestion.

Re: Community topic for Automation

Hello everybody,

  More than a year since Andreas Schaefer suggested to establish a community, dedicated for automation.

  Since I started now to learn and write some simple programs, it is my interest too, to take part in such a group.

  So, where is it? Promise to take part...

Re: Community topic for Automation

Andreas,

 

I support your idea and would like to suggest, request, that the community also invite PADS flow, besides EE.

 

The community including PADS becomes significantly larger. PADS in many configurations uses DxD as a front end.

And the changes from DxD 2.5 to 2.7 are similar.

 

I will do my share by suggesting to PADS users that the view and visit that site.

 

In last e-mail Cathy suggests the use of already existing community.  Is that where we should guide questions.?

 

Andy.

Re: Community topic for Automation

Yes, I would suggest the existing Automation & Scripting community on http://communities.mentor.com/mgcx/community/pcb/design_tasks/automation_scripting. That design area is not intended to be flow-specific. In fact there is a small number of PADS-specific scripts already posted. See http://communities.mentor.com/mgcx/docs/DOC-1363 .
