I have designed a few individual PCBs and i’m now working on panelization to have them fabbed, i have read the docs but unless i missed something there’s no clear directions on how that works in Horizon.
From what i’m guessing i should use the “Manage included boards” window which then allows me to use the “Place board panel” menu but whenever i select the board to place the editor window crash with that error :
There’s also an error dump in stderr, i’m not sure if it makes sense to include it here as it’s quite lengthy. I don’t know if i’m doing anything wrong here, I’m using Horizon 2.0 on Linux Mint 20.2 and have tried with various board designs.
Other than that, i’m not sure how and when i’m supposed to draw my tab routes. I previously used Altium where you would draw them from the outlines of the board before including it into the panel, it would use a dedicated mechanical layer for that purpose and appear as such on the panel :
What would be the correct way to replicate that with Horizon ? I suppose it’s done using the Outline layer but i don’t see how. Unless it needs to be done once the boards are placed on the panel ?
Thanks a lot for your help with these issues !
