I have made more detailed look at it and I think you are right, the rules
seems to be really saved, but if you open the DRC, in the headline the
default rules are declared instead of the really used rules (I think in past
there were the used rules with the indicator of change). I don't know why my
rules were switched do default, perhaps I have unintentionally loaded it,
but the false indication confused me...
I am just finishing one thing I have begun in 6.x and continue only in 5.11
(at least upto the next upgrade), so you will not be bothered from my side
so much now...
you never bothered me..... I am glad about each message that can help in improving EAGLE.
I did some testing as well and could not find a problem with the Design Rules. So maybe you unintentionally changed the rules or loaded another dru file.
Yes, I might have done it. But everytime I reopen Eagle, the design rules
are declared default, even though they are set correctly. Also in the XML
data there is the header and description of the defaul rules instead of the
rules I have in used indeed. Only after I load the rules from the file I
have saved it looks OK - but only before the session is closed. A bit
I changed a few things on a board and now it gives me an air wire between two IC pins yet there is clearly a trace between them. The trace is named the same as the connection on the schematic. I can't seem to get the airwire to go away. What should I do? I'm using 5.11.
What I don't want to do is rip up the whole trace and reroute it since it's a complicated trace.
Mike: I would check the name of the trace to see if it's the same name as the air wire. I would understand it if it was a different name, and the traces aren't exactly on the start and end pad central position.
Also, does a DRC check show any errors?
what about ROUTE? When you try to route it does this help? You could also check with MOVE what the matter is. Maybe there are several wires at this position..... Once you got out what the problem is you can use UNDO to get back the original situation. Then decide how to proceed.
If you are unsure, send me your board file with private mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will keep you message in mind and look into the Design Rules subject we discussed here as soon as I have a bit of time for this. Seems to be a bit odd....
I fiddled with it and got it cleaned up. Not exactly sure why it was doing what it was doing. But I deleted the connection on the schematic, ripped up each end segment of the trace, remade the connection on the schematic and re-routed each end segment.
When you say ROUTE command, are you referring to using the icon from the tool bar on the left? I presume so, and I guess it is a command. But it seems more like a tool than a command. Is there significance to entering a command on the command line? I did enter ROUTE on the command line and it did nothing of significance other than select the Route tool. I presume this is all the same, right?
Thanks, it was your suggestion of using Route that got me going on it again.
Please help to understand the script make-symbol-device-package-bsdl.ulp.
Unfortunately, there is no description of this script, and I can not figure out how to properly create text or BSDL files.
On the Internet, could not find examples of the use this script.
Thanks in advance, Alex
ROUTE as an icon is exactly the same as typing it in the command line. No difference.
there is documentation available for make-symbol-device-package-bsdl.ulp. It is part of the EAGLE installation and located in the eagle/doc folder and named
For the LIFE of me I cannot figure out what to do to import my.dxf file which has a board outline that I need to create a board.
I am not sure what to do with a .scr file after I convert it......anyone got any steps I can follow?
Sorry for being a complete novice!
this thread should no longer be used, because of the large number of posts here......
So please create a new thread for the next question....
There are some tools that allow to convert DXF format to EAGLE script.
Please look at http://www.cadsoft.de/downloads/tools-and-converters
Commonly used tools

With my last reply in this thread...
Is there a patch for iteadstudio CAM file to work with version 6.1?
I found this post
But I can not see where to download an old version of Eagle...
Or is there a simple format change to the CAM file that I can make to get it to work?
Here is a link to the cam file
If I want to duplicate the same circuit in the layout to send it to production (do not know the word in english), do i have to duplicated it first in the schematic and then i have two equal boards, or is there another way to do it?
