Tech Tip: How to Set-up Autorouting in E3.series

Menu

E3.series 2017 brings improved automatic routing for making connections by adding automatic connections between selected items. The most common controls are based on the following scenarios

  • Pins are placed horizontally or vertically in line
  • Already connected pins are moved or rotated
  • By selecting 2 pins to connect with each other using Auto Route by Selection option
  • Pins that share the same signal name
  • Pins connected by one or more wires

The route settings for calculating the best path between 2 pins are based on 3 major factors

  • The distance settings for making turns – a multiple of the grid size
  • The cost of making decisions – Turns, crossing of symbols and connections are weighted by a cost of 0-100.
  • The priority of shortest connection vs the longest connections.

The following video will show you how to set-up and use the ‘Auto Route’ feature in E3.series.
