Selected Test Results

What works

Installation.  Schematic and PCB document creation, editing, and printing.  PCB VRML export (verified with MeshLab).  Submission of data and order to Bay Area Circuits.

What does not

PCB editor continuously raises itself and grabs focus when autorouter is running.  Move to another workspace to prevent interference while using other applications.

Dialogs can be lost behind app (the well-known Wine z-axis problem).


What was not tested

Upgrading and review of Gerbers from Bay Area Circuits.

HowTo / Notes


Offers a choice of OpenGL, Direct3D, or Windows GDI operation.  If you are having display problems then try changing this (View>Graphics Mode).

Copy/paste limited to within app.

3D models are a separate download with an installer.

No Gerber or DXF export.  Upgrade to DipTrace required.

The dialogs can get stuck behind the main app window.  Use your window manager controls to move them (Alt-Space, M with Xfce on Xubuntu).
