Altium panelization is nice that it is still all interactive PCB editor, this hackaday posting was about a Gerber hack
in b4 I write a lot of articles etc.
and then CFD, then FEA.
@Andrew Sowa then you and I should chat 1:1 about sim. I like SI. it's on my list of things to be interested in. :)
We're going to be out of time in 9 minutes, get your last questions/ comments in
you can stay on the chat as long as you want of course, but it officially ends on the hour :)
I don't much about it but I know fabs do it on their own. My worry is that I penalize and then they say I screwed up without knowing exactly how wrong I am.
yah, the fabs do it and they have great tools for it. things like a TDR and great test equip that most of us dont need to own/
We did solve steady state thermal if that helps
oh yah...that's the beauty of the fusion integration
Fusion gives you thermal, stress, CAM (toolpath), 3D printing, etc...everything like a proper MCAD tool
sorry, that was handwavy...but it's true!
I have use webench for some thermals but that's another thing I want to be better at. Hi-power leds get toasty
Tell me about it
ahh yep, I know the guys that built it! very well!
they are clever dudes...
the back end of that is a serious thermal simulator
I'm using a Allegro A3091 h-bridge with sinusoidal PWM but get a square-ish voltage on the scope....
and they have done a great job of reducing the problem of deciding on their parts to near zero
I am I allowed to say autorouter or is that a four letter word.
autorouters can be frustrating, I know.
@NikiSchlifke without looking up the part- if the input pins are comparator based it won't matter that the PWM is sinusoidal.
but they can also be super helpful
@Andrew Sowa I would prefer if we focused on assisted routing
: things like Autocomplete
things like auto length tune
the Eagle autorouter was nice, a bit slow sometimes with fine routing grid
things like Sketch based routing
@Frank Buss it's still there in all it's glory. :)
@Edwin Robledo AHAHAHAA... dude, that is SO tuesday.
push and shove is huge. I don't think i can ever go backwards from that
even in the free version?
@Frank Buss I am planning all of the same features for free and paid.
@Jorge Garcia, by sinusoidal pwm I mean I modulate the pulse with to get a sinusoidal shape after filtering.
Question: Aren't push and shove synonyms? What's the difference?
one reason back in the days for me buying the commercial version was the autorouter, you might lose some money :-)
@Frank Buss I agree...but this really isnt about short term revenue
I've got to jump off, but we'll post a transcript shortly.
the goal here is building awesome tools and if I told you how many autorouter licenses we sold, you would...then again you wouldnt, probably be surpirsed
@technolomaniac Great Stuff as usual!!Thank you
thank you for doing this :)
