New Video Tutorials
Below you will find a collection of PCB Tutorial Videos showing you how to get the best out of AutoTRAX’s powerful PCB design capabilities.
This video shows you how to change the background to the 3-D view of your printed circuit board.
The normal view is a gradient from one colour to another and the default is from dark blue to white.
You can easily change either of the two gradient colours are select a colour from the palette buttons.
This video shows you how to replace a part in the design by simply dragging a part from the library onto a symbol in your design and it will be automatically replaced. This replacement will also include automatically wiring up the new part with connections that exist for the part been replaced.
This video shows you how to resize the content of a sheet to fill the sheet. This is extremely useful when you have a small design that only takes up a small area of the sheet and you actually want an enlarged area for both aesthetic reasons and for printing.
This is done by using the sheet property section in the properties panel and dragging the page scale thumbwheel to a left at the right. You will see the page content dynamically change in size as you do this and it is extremely easy to arrange the size of the content to fill the sheet.
In this video I will show you how to connect together 2 or more split power planes. This is necessary because the Electra auto-router will not automatically connect them together and so you will need to manually connect them.
It is quite easy; all you need to do is join the 2 or more split power planes with graphical objects such as polylines and polygons and combine the added graphics to the split power planes to make a single split power planes.
