Remove many placement outlines from pcb for odb++ export

I have a question about automatic ODB ++ export.


Our cells contain two placement outlines:

  • Inner placement outline with height > 0mm (for example 14 mm -> pls. see attached screenshot)
  • Outer placement outline with height = 0 mm

At the beginning we want to remove the placement outline with height = 0 mm to get the inner placement outline in the ODB++ data.


If we make the removal from the current layout, it goes fast. The problem is that the ODB++ export uses the cell information from the cell editor. Thus the deleted placement outlines exist in the export files.

If we adjust the cells in the editor before exporting, it takes a very long time.


Does anyone have a better idea?
