Tech Tip: Using Templates to Generate Area Fills
When generating area fills, designers must consider the polygon as a work in progress. Using templates to control the automatic generation of area fills allows the design to focus on more critical routing issues.
You must ensure that you are receiving maximum coverage when routing wires when generating simple area fills for large co-planer areas. Sometimes this is overlooked. Creating templates to control area fills in CR-8000 Design Force helps ensure copper is always up to date, meeting relevant design rules and maximum area coverage.
This video explains how using templates to control area fills in CR-8000 Design Force can help ensure copper is always up to date meeting relevant design rules and maximum area coverage.

Zuken reveals details of release 2020 of its advanced 3D multi-board EDA environment CR-8000.
Design Force offers an intuitive, integrated environment for designing single and multi-die packages for wire-bond, flip-chip, and high density advanced packaging. Designers can start designs with early prototype input of chip and package data from the library, reuse data from IC layout tools, and take advantage of parametric wizards to streamline the creation of the system
Design Force combines traditional 2D design with native 3D design and the latest human interface techniques, accelerated graphics and almost instantaneous rendering and refreshing. It is the fastest, most effective PCB design solution available today. Design Force enables design teams to layout their designs in the context of a complete system or product.
Building a competitive product today is much more difficult than a few years ago. Existing PCB-centric design processes are limited to a single PCB and do not provide the necessary tools for today’s competitive product development environment. PCB-centric design processes are falling behind.
