Constraint Flows


Capture Constraint Flows to PCB Editor

In this illustrated WhitePaper, you'll see how to more fully flow constraints to Constraint Manager from the Capture Desktop.


Capture is flows net-based constraints to Constraint Manager through netlisting.

Constraint Manager is a hierarchical constraint system using layer-based CSets and Class-to-Class Relational Objects.

Capture enhanced with MakeCAP fully supports both the net-based constraint flow and a complementary hierarchical constraint flow from the Capture Desktop directly to Constraint Manager.
