Named polygon direct connection and another clearance
« on: January 17, 2019, 10:02:05 pm »
Hi,
is there fast possibility to make a named polygon using direct connection and another clearance? For instance:
I got converter MP3414 nad instead of routing it normally it would be better to make those connections (with inductor, caps and so on) using a polygon.
Now I am doing it by writing rule like: InComponent('U7') or InComponent('L1') etc. but it would be more convenient if I could write: InNamedPolygon('MP3414_Inductor'). It obviously doesn't work, as in the screen below.



Maybe you have some other "pro tips" for noobs like me? :)

The answer is: IsNamedPolygon('PolyName')  :-[  |O

Polygons are weird... sometimes you use InPoly, sometimes you use IsNamedPolygon, sometimes you... ::)

In access the objects that make up the polygon ( a polygon is a tlist of vectors)
Is means the object itself.

Another strange thing is that copper polygons are not considered electrical by the "IsElectrical" query. That one had me scratching heads for quite awhile.

A guy just wanted to write a board outline rule for copper and my polygons were not following the rule. If it wasn't for the whole test query feature I would have gone insane long ago.
