Overview OrCAD® Documentation Editor is a PCB documentation authoring tool that intelligently automates the documentation creation process to produce complex PCB documentation in a fraction of the time versus traditional methods. Developed in the style and use-model of Windows desktop applications (shown in Figure 1), OrCAD Documentation Editor enables you to very quickly and easily create documentation that drives PCB fabri- cation and assembly. OrCAD Documentation Editor "knows" it is creating PCB documentation. Utilizing the OrCAD PCB CAD data, it creates intelligent linked PCB views, drawing details, document notes, drill charts, parts lists, and other crucial documentation details. The result is documentation that more accurately articu- lates instructions for the successful fabrication, assembly, and inspection of PCBs. The completed Documentation Editor release package contains all the data necessary to build, view, and archive the final product. Documentation Features Drawing creation Standard or custom drawing elements are easily added by dragging and dropping from a palette of drawing-specific elements. You can drag and drop into place drawing elements such as sheet borders, title blocks, PCB views, drill charts, detail views, text boxes, and note blocks. Elements added to your drawings can be easily relocated, resized, and customized. Each element may be scaled, formatted, transformed (rotated, mirrored, flipped, etc.) independent of each other. There is no limit on the number of elements that can be placed on a drawing. Highlights • Intuitive Windows desktop application-style use-models and methods increase productivity and ease of creation for PCB documentation • Tight integration with OrCAD PCB Editor enables simple click-through passing of design data to expedite the drawing creation process • Intelligent automation saves hours, if not days, creating PCB drawings for fabrication, assembly, and inspection • Eliminates manual drawing of tedious document elements by automatically creating component assembly views, drill pattern view, details, and parts lists derived from the OrCAD PCB CAD data • Design changes made in OrCAD PCB Editor are automatically propagated to all effected drawing elements, dramatically reducing time spent updating documentation due to the design changes Figure 1.
