The PlacementArea.vbs script will report the area usage of the board (Board Outline) against the area of all components (Placement Outlines) including top vs. bottom comparisons. User has the option to include or exclude Test Points (components from the Package Group "Test Point"). All other components containing placement outlines and having no unique reference designators (I.E. Tooling Holes) will have their area reported using their cell name as the ref des. All placement outline areas (there may be multiple outlines per component) are accumulated under their refdes or cell name. The script will write to "BoardCompArea.txt" in the pcb\LogFiles directory and may be viewed using Expedition's FileViewer.
