Alexandre,

set the scope to check only the holes of certain size or certain net, not the whole 
board.

Subject: [PEDA] Hole Size Constraint


I want to set some rules in the "Hole Size Constraint" to specify the
drill bits available from APCircuit.  I've set the following constraint
:

Name            Scope            Min        Max
Drill 42mil    Board             42mil        42mil
Drill 28mil    Board             28mil        28mil
Drill 35mil    Board             35mil        35mil


When I run the DRC, I get the following rule violations:



Processing Rule : Hole Size Constraint (Min=42mil) (Max=42mil) (On the
board )
   Violation         Pad J1-25(49796mil,53700mil)  MultiLayer  Actual
Hole Size = 35mil
   Violation         Pad J1-24(49905mil,53700mil)  MultiLayer  Actual
Hole Size = 35mil
   Violation         Pad J1-23(50014mil,53700mil)  MultiLayer  Actual
Hole Size = 35mil
   Violation         Pad J1-22(50123mil,53700mil)  MultiLayer  Actual
Hole Size = 35mil
...
   Violation         Via (52895mil,51705mil) TopLayer to BottomLayer
Actual Hole Size = 28mil
   Violation         Via (53060mil,52280mil) TopLayer to BottomLayer
Actual Hole Size = 28mil
   Violation         Via (50621mil,53040mil) TopLayer to BottomLayer
Actual Hole Size = 28mil
   Violation         Via (50698mil,53040mil) TopLayer to BottomLayer
Actual Hole Size = 28mil
...

Processing Rule : Hole Size Constraint (Min=35mil) (Max=35mil) (On the
board )
Rule Violations :0

Processing Rule : Hole Size Constraint (Min=28mil) (Max=28mil) (On the
board )
Rule Violations :0


Depending on the order that I entered my constraint, Protel change the
violation (ex : Violation on the 35mil hole size constraint for all
holes set to 28mil).


Could you tell me if this issue has already been addressed on the
forum.  If not, I would like to know if someone already did this and
how.

I know that I can use the "Hole Size Editor" to check this by hand, but
I would like to be able to use the DRC to check that.  Isn't the DRC job
to check for manufacturing errors??

Thank you

Alexandre Desnoyers
