    New Functionality Details Launch BluePrint Directly from Cadence Allegro Create or Update BluePrint-PCB Documents Directly from Cadence Allegro PCB Design System

    You can now create or update existing BluePrint-PCB documents directly from the Cadence Allegro PCB Design System menus*. New BluePrint-PCB documentation is created using the BluePrint- PCB Documentation Wizard that assists you in defining your Assembly and Fabrication Drawings. Existing BluePrint-PCB documentation are updated seamlessly. The EDA data transfer occurs automatically in the background without user intervention.

    DownStream Product Installation automatically links the BluePrint-PCB installation to an existing Allegro PCB Design System installation to enable seamless data transfer.

    *Note: Currently verified with the Cadence Allegro 16.6 release. Earlier releases not validated, but may be compatible.

    Automated Update of Imported Documents Outdated Imported Documents are Refreshed with Newer Source

    Documents (external files) imported into a BluePrint-PCB file are automatically refreshed with new versions of the file source on file open. Outdated documents that were inserted into a BluePrint document from the Task Pane are presented on file open. Users can select whether or not to update the inserted documents.

    Board Image Flip Status Labeling for Panel Drawings Board Image Labeling Denotes Flip Status for Flip Panel Designs

    For Panel Drawings, you can now display IPC standard annotation labels denoting the flip (mirror) status. Boards are identified with an “A” or “B” label that is flipped and/or oriented accordingly.

    Expanded Adaptive Template™ Support Custom Edits for Component Coordinate Lists and Generic Tables are Retained

    Adaptive Template technology has been extended to include additional templates. You can now define adaptive templates for Component Coordinate Lists. In addition, Generic Table Templates can be used as Adaptive Templates. You can make custom edits to expanded tables for Component Coordinate Lists and Generic Table Templates. Custom edits are retained on any ECO Update operation.

    Process Steps in PCB View and Process Step Chart Process Step Charts and PCB Views Show Variants for Process Steps

    You can now display a Process Step filtered by an Assembly Variant in an Assembly PCB View or Process Step Chart. Use the settings to display Installed, Uninstalled and/or Substituted part status.

    Drill Symbol Sizing in Fabrication Manager Drill Symbol Sizing are Adjustable by Hole Size

    You can now set Drill Symbol size for each hole size in the Fabrication Manager. Use this to set a Drill Symbol size proportional to the actual hole size, making the Drill Pattern more clear improved correspondence of symbol size to hole size.

    Inspection Dimension Type Dimension Type for Critical Inspection Annotation

    In support of industry standards, a new Inspection dimension type was introduced. Use the Inspection dimension type to add and identify critical inspection dimensions with a rounded rectangle around the dimension value.

    Datum Feature Snapping to Dimensions Datum Features Lock to Dimensions

    Datum Features can now be snapped to any dimension lines in your BluePrint-PCB documentation. This allows you to move a PCB View or dimension and keep the Datum Feature locked to the associated dimension.

    Aligned Dimensions Orient to Line Segment Angles Orientation Support to Line Angles for Aligned Dimensions

    The Aligned Dimension drawing elements can now be oriented to the same angle as lines selected for dimensioning. The Aligned Dimension context menu now has a new Snap Preference setting for snapping to either Vertex or Line. Vertex snapping mode works by snapping to any selectable points for snapping. Line snapping mode works by snapping to a line segment or extension and adjusting the Aligned Dimension orientation to match the angle of the selected line segment or extension.
