SOOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous! I’ll try an export to a stupid template with just formulas and no macros. Maybe that will help. Otherwise, not sure what to do.
@mightyohm I’ll keep this idea in my back pocket. Not sure I want to mess around with variants at the moment. Especially on mostly completed projects. It’s not a bad way to do it though.
@rclott I don’t disagree with this, but I’m not sure it really fits what we do here, mostly because we don’t do that kind of variant of PCBs. At the moment we have a disconnect between electronics (just me) and the rest of the engineering at the company. We use Windchill for the MCAD repository and while I think Altium does have a plugin for it, we’ve just been using SVN for the ECAD data. We do track the drawing versions (which are the MCAD/ECAD drawings), but there aren’t variants of drawings, just revisions. Not sure if this explains anything or if I’m just speaking gibberish to be honest.
Most of the reasons we have no fits on the boards in the first place was in case the correct components could not be purchased in time and we needed a different component with a different footprint. which… … … I lost the plot. …
