In the DxDesigner-Expedition flow the variant information is shared between the tools, no need for an explicit export. Open Variant Manager in Expedition and you will see the variants you defined in DxDesigner. Are you trying to do something else with this information?
i need to export the pick & place data.
normally i do this with report writer, but with DXDesigner the report writer don't have the variant information wich parts have been replaced.
I'll see what I can find out.
If you require pick & place information for each variant, it is possible to do this when in the variant view using File - Export - General Interfaces - Generic AIS
This will ist the parts that are unplaced, but will still give their X-Y co-ordintes.
It is also possible to generate other formats such as ODB++ and neutral with variant information included
okay, at first appearance the Generic AIS file looks good....
but i don't have the information if SMD or Thru hole. The list contains every part of the variant, also the through hole components that are not being reflow soldered.
The Mitron GenCad file has all information i need, so we have to find a way to get the information from this file.
But it would have been great if i can work the same way like with Design Capture and just create a Excel file with Report Writer. But this don't seem to be possible anymore...
thanks for your help
