I don't understand what do you do.
What I need is to understand how from this file I can import the shape into pads and converte this shape to board outline
When inside the pads 9.5 I selected the shape and by drafting properties I change Type from 2D Line to board outline the following error appear:
"You cannot convert an open 2D line into a close Board outline".
If I select the shape, push close appear the following message "Close command aborted - unable to create single drawing from selected drawings"
If I open after the drafting properties and select type: Board Outline the followin error appear:
Where is it the problem?
I need to put attention during import setup windows
The final result that I like is to have this board outline
In Mechanical tool create a layer called Boardoutline_00 (i think). Make sure polygon representing board outline is a closed shape. Move the that new layer. Create new DXF file and import it into PADS.
Also look in to technote: MG25818 at https://supportnet.mentor.com/portal?do=reference.technote&id=MG25818&lang=en&prod=C107-S114-G106-P10022
this is the file but I'm not able to have board outline into pads...
In any case also in your file (shape closed 2009 asci.asc) I'm not able to convert shape from 2D to boardoutline....
That file has two overlapping shapes. You need to delete one of them, before converting the remaining shape to a board outline.
You are right.
Thanks a lot.
For information of other user, if need to close the polilyne on autocad or draftsight you can use BPOLY (oppure in Italiano PPOLI)
The command ask to select a point inside the shape.
