Please let me know how to create script for expedition EE7.9.5 version and run procedure.
Actually i need to get height properties of all components used in layout and get as doc.Please help
I can't help you with scripting, but you can get this information using Report Writer in Expedition.
-Invoke Report Writer
-Select Physical board data
-Press Tool Launcher
-Select Expedition PCB Physical Tool
The report will open in a Crystal Reports preview window, which can be saved in a number of different formats.
Of course, this assumes that all the parts in the design have a height property assigned in the library.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for your reply.
The report generates through partprops.rpc doesn't have information on height of the part. Only description, partname name&label ,value ,type and footprint name.
any idea to add this height property in this report or in some other way to check all components height.
I’m sorry that hasn’t worked for you. Like I said, it is dependent on the ecad librarian entering that information when the part is created. (The height should be included in the manufacturer’s datasheet.) The component height becomes a property of the cell. If that information is NOT included in the part, then the database has no way to gather or report it.
Check the “Part Properties” on a few random components in your design. Check to see if “Mount Height” is a non-zero number in the lower portion of the dialog box:
If the information is available, Report Writer will find and gather it.
Below are several entries from partprops.txt from a design I am working on (units=th).
Part Name Part Label
5PCON 5PC USB MINI-B VERT
Top Cell Bottom Cell
CONN 5P USB MINI-B VERT
SCH VALUE 5PCON
Load Option 0T
4PCON 4PC USB B-TYPE THRU RA
CONN 4P USB B-TYPE THRU RA
SCH VALUE 4PCON
40PCON 40PC 1mmSP 2ROW RA HDR
CONN 40P 1mmSP 2ROW RA HDR
SCH VALUE 40PCON
Load Option 0M
50PCON 50PC FLIP GATE FFC/FPC W/
CONN,50P,FLIP GATE,FFC/FPC W/TABS
SCH VALUE 50PCON
8PCON 8PC USB DUAL STACKED A TH
CONN 8P USB DUAL STACKED A THRU
SCH VALUE USB_DUAL
So, I guess the take-away for you is that component height must be included as a property of the part in the library in order to pull the information out.
Beyond that, I have no other suggestions for you.
