As extension to the original question of this topic, I would like to ask what the experiences are with CircuitMaker ? It looked like a nice tool but I find it hard to use the router, somehow I can't get it to work. I have several options for PCB tools but I think Circuit Maker is a nice option. Any thoughts on the pro's and con's?

You mean the router from schematic to PCB?

I couldn't tell you, as I have never used it wink.gif

I have heard from many of my fellows that they use Eagle for that. However, it doesn't have default valves. You'd have to add them manually to the partslist.

As a "tubehead", I tend to do the schematic and Spice on CM Student version, then do a breadboard "tweak" layout. What Spice says may sound good and my ears say sounds good is very often two different matters wink.gif

After that, I drill good ol' chassis.

However, I will be using it in the future for some SS projects planned. I'll let you know what I find ;D

Another good place for an answer to that question is nntp://sci.electronics.cad - good helpful (if impatient) bunch over there.

Good luck!

I was one of the beta testers for CM2000. CM is terrible, but it is the best that is out there right now. Eagle is far too difficult to learn, and the interface is not intuitive in the least.

Understand a couple of things with the CM/TM package:

1. Customer support is nonexistant. You can call and get all the promises in the world, but you will not get one iota of help.

2. The autoroute routine is slow and buggy, but once you understand that it will take overnight to route a moderately complex board, it isn't all that bad.

3. Circuitmaker will destroy your file if you forget and leave the Adobe pdf maker as the default printer when you exit the program.

Yeep! I haven't noticed that on CM Student.

As for support, the people at Altium were great with me. I have a bug that they never heard of before and still isn't quite fixed. We must've exchanged ten e-mails and I got the first response in 48 hours and the subsequent responses within the hour of them being sent. ???

Maybe tha's the trick - go DIRECT to Altium like I did, rather than the default CGI form.....

As for the TM, I have heard it is buggy and have yet to try it on mine. Mind you, kinda hard methinks to tell it, "OK, we are turning you into a punched chassis router today" wink.gif

Or you can e-mail him from the Contact page.
