Automatically add placement obstruct to cells

Question asked by greg.hall on Sep 17, 2015

have a requirement to add a placement obstruct box around a series of cell within our library.

The placement obstruct is to be 5mm greater in size than the placement outline, mount side with a height of 0.

The problem that I have is that this involves over 500 individual cells which all require editing and I would like to know if there is some way of automating this process.


the library is in expedition enterprise version 7.9.1, but also have one in version VX.1 which will also require the update.

Any ideas as to how I can speed up the process, as it is very long time going into each cell, copying the placement outline, change layer type and grow by 5mm, then saving and repeat on the next cell.
