    cannot export variants in ODB++  from PCB or Panel

    cgoldenbus

      I would like to export all of my variants into ODB++ .

      When I open the export odb++ I cannot check the output variants box.

      Is this only for DX schematic variants? I'm using DC with Vx.2.2

      Thanks

          Hi Carl,

           

          the variants options in the ODB++ Output form are, as you say, only for DX schematic based variants.

          For DC Variant ODB++ files you will need to carry out the following in Variant Manager:

          Output > CAD > Select the Variant you wish to create ODB++ file for, then Process

          This will put the PCB in that variant view.

          Create the ODB++ file as usual, but ensure that the name you give the file reflects the variant as well, this will keep each ODB++ file unique.

           

          This process gives you the same result as if you had selected 'Generate separate variant outputs'.

          The 'include variant data' (in one ODB++ file) is not available in DC based Variant Manager.

           

          I hope that this helps.

          Best regards

          Jackie

            I assumed it would end up that way,  I was hoping not.

            At least it's not another license..

            Thanks Jackie.
