The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to generate a text report of any violations that exist for the current document, after having run a Design Rule Check.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Reports » DRC/DFM command from the main menus.


First ensure that you have run a Design Rule Check on the current document.

After launching the command, a text report (DrcReport.rpt) will be generated and opened as the active document in the main design window.

The report gives a summary of the violations found and, for each rule check that has been violated, the number of violations Found, Fixed, and Remaining, are listed.


  1. If launching this command prior to running a Design Rule Check, a dialog will appear alerting you to the fact that you must run a DRC first, before a report can be generated.
  2. The report is generated and saved automatically in the \Users\<ProfileName>\AppData\Roaming\Altium\Altium NEXUS <GUID>\CAMtastic folder of your software installation. The report will appear in the Projects panel as a free document.
  3. Generating a new report will overwrite an existing report of the same name without warning.
