TraceCopperHeight

Modified by Susan Riege on Dec 8, 2018

Parent page: PCB Query Functions - Attribute Checks

Summary

Returns all arc, fill, and track objects, on signal layers whose copper thickness complies with the Query.

The Copper Thickness for a signal layer is defined within the Layer Stack Manager (Design » Layer Stack Manager).
Arc, fill, and track objects on the Multi-Layer are not returned. Because different signal layers can have different Copper Thickness properties, a Copper Thickness property for the Multi-Layer is not always meaningful.

Syntax

TraceCopperHeight : Number

The entered thickness is always in units of mils, regardless of the measurement unit chosen for the board (1 mil = 0.001 inch).

Example Usage

TraceCopperHeight = 1.4
Returns all arc, fill, and track objects, on signal layers whose copper thickness is equal to 1.4mil.

TraceCopperHeight Between 1.1 And 1.5
Returns all arc, fill, and track objects, on signal layers whose copper thickness is greater than, or equal to, 1.1mil, and less than, or equal to, 1.5mil.

TraceCopperHeight >= 1.2
Returns all arc, fill, and track objects, on signal layers whose copper thickness is greater than, or equal to, 1.2mil.

TraceCopperHeight < 1.3
Returns all objects except arc, fill, and track objects, on signal layers whose copper thickness is greater than, or equal to, 1.3mil.

TraceCopperHeight = 2.8 || (IsArc Or IsFill Or IsTrack && OnMultiLayer)
Returns all arc, fill, and track objects, on signal layers whose copper thickness is equal to 2.8mil, and all arc, fill, and track objects on the Multi-Layer.
