Expedition to PADS migration

Is it possible to migrate certain designs from Expedtion to PADS. I know Expedtion has many additional features which are not availabe in PADS but what about simple layouts? Is it possible to migrate them from Expedition to PADS ?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

If you're on maintenance, you should be able to find what you need on http://supportnet.mentor.com/reference/other-info/Migrate-DC-EE-to-DxD-EE.cfm.

 

Other good starting points -- for anyone working on migrations and translations -- are the Migration Planning Guides and Dx/PADS translators pages on SupportNet.

 

Best regards,

Cathy

Hello,

 

Some of the messages are warnings, and the data that is incompatable is being given default rules.

 

Did you check the compatibality of the versions you are translating? Did you get any data after the translation?

 

You may need to file an SR on this one...

I haven't experences about the translation from ExpedtionPCB to Pads, but I think you can try to make CES database disable(openning .prj file using notepad editor, find  ' useCES "1" ' and change it to ' useCES "0" ' ,save it and re-run the traslation.
