    Don`t Remember the Eagle Grid setting

    dhiru

      Hello Everyone,

       

      I am using eagle 7.6.0. My friend made a schematic and board layout of a PCB. He send me the files for editing.

      He used some grid setting which he don`t remember.

      If I open the file to edit the schematic with my default grid setting, the net are not snapping to the pin terminals of the components.

      Is there any way to open the file with grid settings with which the file was saved?

      Or Is there any other reason for which I am unable to snap the pin terminals of the components?

       

      Best regards,

      Dhiraj

          The schematic and pins on the symbols should be 0.1".

          I could see some one setting the grid to 0.05" or 0.01".

           

          Use the info on the parts and nets in the schematic and see what the

          coordinates are. You should be able to figure out the grid that was used.

                "If I open the file to edit the schematic with my default grid setting,

                the net are not snapping to the pin terminals of the components".

                 

                In this case I assume the connections had never been really made. If one

                opens a *.sch the connections are done and they do not snap to the devices.

                Standard Grid in *.sch is 0,1" and is actually the only grid size

                because the devices are made in this size. Check if the origins of

                devices are on grid. If they are then only the nets may have been drawn

                false. If the origins are not on grid then the whole drawing could have

                been shoved off grid.

                One then can use the ulp "snap-on-grid" but try that on a copy of the

                schematics.
