Design Rule for Edge-Mount Connectors

Old Content - visit

This script will create/modify DRC rules to allow short-circuits in the board cut-out area when using edge-mount connectors.

The script was created for Rosenberger edge-mount connector footprints, where there are pads and vias in these footprints that are very close to the board cut-out area. This particular situation causes many errors when running DRC.

The rule allows short-circuits in vias and pads within the board cut-out region. You can create the same rule manually, but this script will automatically include all affected Rosenberger footprints. To add additional footprints to the exception list simply append them to the query.

Download this script and execute it in your PCB document. This script will append this design rule to your rule list automatically.
